I love the convenience and ease of having a camera in my phone to be able to take pictures at any time, but the quality wasn't great. I was hesitant to add another gadget, and knew that I wouldn't remember to take a camera the way I take my phone. But the quality of the pictures is so good that I don't mind. The high speed lens is perfect for taking pictures of kids who never seem to stay still, and there's a feature called the Optical Image Stabilizer that compensates for hand shakes and movement. The zoom feature is nice, but I did find that as you zoom in, the picture quality is not as good. Another feature, the Intelligent LCD, detects the lighting conditions and controls the brightness level; I didn't always like the adjustments it made (it tended to make the saturation of colors lighter) but that can be changed in editing.
