I've had this camera for a couple years and have been very happy with it. The quality of pictures is great, the movie function is quite good for a digital camera, and it's very easy to use.There are a few negatives. It is frustrating that many of the settings on the camera are not described anywhere in the manual, and some of the things that are described aren't explained very well. Once in a while, the auto-focus does not work until I turn the camera off and turn it on again. And it uses the relatively uncommon xD memory card.I've looked at more modern digital cameras, and I may upgrade one day, but for now this camera is completely sufficient and I have no need to upgrade to anything more recent.
