Pros

Doesn't require an expensive, large-capacity SD card - many users report sufficient full-quality content capture when using an 8 or even 4-gigabyte card

1 agrees

Excellent entry-level compact digital - still image and video capture resolutions are consistent and respectable, with multiple picture customization modes available

Cons

Several users report freezing/total unit malfunction issues within less than a week of use - consumers should be wary of manufacturer defects

1 agrees

Auto-focus feature is somewhat hit and miss - unit may occasionally perform a partial focus, forcing the user to manually adjust various settings

1 agrees

Camera is seemingly prone to a 2 to 4-second delay between shutter activation and actual image capture - may cause substantial frustration due to blinking/moving subjects

1 agrees

Battery life is very poor - many users report an average charge life of approximately one hour, potentially much lower if used for extensive video capture

1 agrees

Camera requires specific mAh/nimH batteries - may result in exorbitant costs and potential unit damage if alkaline power is used

1 agrees

Bright-light still photos may occasionally appear over-saturated or "washed out" - issues occur amongst both natural and artificial light applications
