I bought this camera alongside with Nikon D40. Originally Nikon D40 was going to be my only camera, but as it's an SLR, it's a large camera so I can't take it everywhere with me (i.e. gigs, parties) so I knew a pocket sized camera would be suitable to carry around for those kind of social events. Also having some realistic pictures rather than professional ones is sometimes good to have. This is a really lovely camera, the pictures come out so well and there are many options you can choose.
The only downside is, although it can save and delete pictures, when I bought a Sandisk SD 2gb memory card, saving was fine but it was only whenever I came to delete the last picture, it would freeze everytime. I would have to take out the batteries and then start it again, so it would delete the last picture then, but must I do that all the time? So it maybe be possible that that memory card is not compatible to this camera.
Other than that, this cameras great, I recommend it.
