Bought this camera about 3 weeks ago for the wife as a handbag camera. Was not expecting much for such a low price but have to admit I have been pleasantly surprised by its image quality. Nice daylight shots and dim light shots came out better then I`ve seen on some other budget compacts. Obviously not up there with the likes of Canon, Panasonic or Sony but then at almost £100 cheaper than their lowest models, its never going to be. If you are looking for a cheap compact with reasonable picture quality and some fairly useful settings then for the price this is a winner and I would recommend it.
