It seems like a quality camera when you first pick it up. Solidly made. The 12 megapixels enable you to crop your photo nicely without losing out on size if the need arises. Image quality is very good. Bright vibrant photos with excellent color distribution. The only fault i've found is that the macro function is terrible. Cosmetically its a gorgeous little camera as you can see, especially in the colors. The 3 times optical zoom is quite powerful considering its such a small body. Giving it enough reach for most situations anyone with a point and shoot will need it for.
To summarize, great little camera so long as you arent interested in the macro side of things, it fails dismally there. Did i mention the image stabilization is EXCELLENT. As is the face detection. Its just a shame about the macro.
