I bought this from Pixmania recently for under £240 and it is an excellent camera for the money. On second thoughts, it would be an excellent camera for £350 but Pixmania has a great deal on.
I bought a 1Gb data card as the bundled card at 32Mb would only be good for a handful of top quality photo's.
The features are easy to use, has a great user interface and the picture quality is stunning.
I had a Canon PowerShot A70 before which was OK but only 3.2 mega-pixels. The step up to 5 Mp+ makes a big difference but i is really in the quality of the Leica lens and a massive 10X optical zoom that the real difference is noticed.
Unlike most of its competitors it has a rechargeable battery pack where others need a bunch of AA's. A charger is included but not a DC connector to the camera for when you are linking to your PC which is a shame.
The bundled software is good too.
I am not a photo enthusiast - I use it for family photo's, when out with the dog, of my daughter etc. and for me this is close to perfect - definitely recommended!
A package arrived this morning from Grolier. My wife had apparently taken a call from them some time ago and had agreed to review an initial set of books which were OK so far as quality goes.
I was personally a little sceptical "if an offer seems too good to be true - it usually is" and so did a little research including reading these reviews and reading about lawsuits and settlements in the US due to customer complaints about 'unsolicited mail'.
I had said to my wife a few times today that I was a little uncomfortable with this and the reviews on this site seem to prove me right.
We have decided to return the books with a letter asking them to cancel the 'membership', remove us from their mailing and calling list, not to share our information with 3rd parties, not to send any more books, not to call us etc.
We are writing to both their mailing addresses (one in Norwich and one in Swindon) and will be sending Recorded signed-for to ensure they cannot say they 'never received' our letter.
Thank you to everyone that has posted a review to date - it may save us a lot of time and money (I hope)!!!!
