Untitled Review
My first digital camera, so take this review with a grain of salt. Reasonably compact, but substantial enough that fits well in larger hands. Very comfortable to hold (actually a major selling point for me). I've found the controls and menus to be sensibly designed, and it seems to take sharp, well-exposed pictures. Only real gripe is that the lens cap MUST be removed before turning on the camera.
