If you are looking for an inexpensive camera that is convenient for traveling and on the go, this panisonic is just the one I would recommend. it has a 9 megapixel resolution which is excellent for editing pictures and uploading to web sites or sharing with family and friends. It has a zoom lens that is functional while taking videos. You can also record video although the microphone is on the top left side of the camera and you need to be careful not to block it. I really like the shutter speed setting so you can set it as slow as 1 second or as fast as 1/200. Overall, for the cost it is very functional and attractive.
