This is my first digital camera (What can I say? I'm slow moving into the 21st century. lol) and I love it. I wanted something simple, easy to use, that takes really good pictures and this fits the bill. I find the "auto" setting works better than switching to "night" or some other setting. My only gripe is that sometimes after taking a shot, it will take several seconds before it will allow me to take another shot and that can mean missing some photo ops. Other than that, I think it's a really brilliant little camera for someone who just wants to take simple snapshots and doesn't want to fuss about.
UPDATE April 2011:
Don't expect this camera to last long. It still takes great pictures at the regular setting, but if I try to zoom in everything goes fuzzy. No amount of fiddling with the settings fixes this. Even on auto it's a hot mess, so I just don't zoom. Also it's rubbish in low light. Pictures taken with the flash look dreadful and if it's dark, forget about it. I think it's time for a new camera. I would advise to spend a little more money and get a higher quality one.
