Advantages: Design, quality, appearance, features.
Disadvantages: Video quality
Great little camera, had it for about 5 years I think. Its got a nice 8MP lens on it, which provides really nice quality photographs, with high detail.
It has a selection of different shooting modes to choose from: these include: Auto, Night, Movie, voice, landscape, pets, children, food etc. There are a few more option as well, and what these do is adjust the setting on the camera automatically, to make whatever your taking a picture of look sharper, crisper, and just better overall.
The materials the camera is made out of give it a nice feel of quality, mainly being metals, and has stood well in the test of time; thus providing adequate protection.
The video feature is of adequate quality, nothing fancy, but is fine for occasional usage.
Has a nice selection of flashes, including red-eye reduction, very handy for that ones persons eyes that light up, which works well. It also has soft flash, which doesn't give that horrible whiteout effect that a normal flash gives. Perfect for low light.
After you've taken your photographs the camera also has a few basic editing tools, if you don't have access to editing software, this offers the basics like crop, and visual light changes ect. quite handy, it also has an opening for a tripod.
Overall, very nice little camera, with all the basic features you'd expect. Avoid if planning on using the video feature extensively.
Summary: very nice little camera, with all the basic features you'd expect.
