This camera is well worth considering if you want a fairly flexible friend that will fit comfortably into your pocket/handbag.
Weighing in at 165g complete with Exilim NP-40 battery, you will hardly notice its there.
Unlike some cameras of this size it offers manual control as well as Snapshot - Auto Mode in other cameras, Best Shot - Scene Mode in other cameras, which, unlike the RV41, actually offer a sports setting, and M, manual.
In M you can alter the shutter value manually, and also select Aperture, but, sadly, you are only offered two settings.
There are a range of focus settings, including one that claims to be manual, which I am afraid it is not. It merely offers a box on screen within which the camera will focus. Why you would want to use this instead of Spot is unclear.
Other settings are: Pan - used as default in Movie Mode - Infinity, for scenery, Macro, and Auto.
The Movie Mode is somewhat better than some I have encountered, in that you can alter a lot of the settings as you would for a still shot, including compression, and EV shift. However, you cannot zoom in and out, though if you do hit the zoom button, you will get digital zoom which is quite dreadful!
The stills results are excellent, and in addition to EV overrides you can change Sharpness, Saturation and Contrast by a factor of +/- 2 places. So far I have not felt the need to use them.
The handbook is very poor; you will need to open the pdf file, which runs to 250 pages. (Are we supposed to print it and take out with us?) Fortunately, most of the settings are intuitive - apart from M!
Would I replace this camera if were to get damaged? Yes!
