Im not sure if it is me or the camera but i find it a bit hit or miss whether the pictures are focused or not. The main thing that goes against this camera is it just eats batteries at an unbelievable rate and alsways dies when you least want it to. On the good side it is compact and has the view finder as well as the screen which is good on sunny days when you cant see the screen well enough. The pictures are of good quality and the shutter speed is good, which is good when taking pictures of my 19 month old who doesnt keep still. i like the design of the camera and the way it sit nicely in your hand but i would not buy this camera agin because i cant afford the batteries it goes through and its unreliabilty due to this. Its a shame because it has some good points.
To use the camera you are told to half press the "shoot button" so that the camera can adjust its self - I find this very hard to do most times I over press resulting in a poorly focused picture I also have quite a lot of trouble overcoming the anti shake system possibly I don't understand how to adjust the many requirements the system needs. The camera is nice to hold and carry is good looking has a nice carrying case not badly priced easy to change memory card and charge batteries but would like easier instructions so that a older (not with today's advanced technical life) person can understand and achieve the capabilities of the camera I'm sure if I can find a local user he/she would be able to guide me in using this product better
