You will find 5MP cameras that are a little more sleek and lightweight making them more portable...but the features packed into this camera more than make up for it.
-It records video...not great quality and only in thirty second clips, but it was an unexpected feature.
-The camera is a plug and play device, so if you have windows xp, it will just show up as a hard drive and you can drag the pictures and avi video files onto your desktop or wherever.
-This is a perfect beginner camera, with plenty of extra features that allow you to grow and develop your skills as a photographer.
-A decent sized LCD screen
-Excellent battery life
-Menu system on camera is quite simple to use after a little practice.
-A lightning fast startup
-Solid build quality.
-No huge instruction manual only a startup manual - the in depth one is in pdf format...which i don't mind.
Note: With the camera you only get 16MB SD card...this will not hold many pictures, especially if you increase the quality settings. Buy a cheap 256MB SD card, which will compliment the battery life a little better.
All in all, though...a fantastic camera and worthy of five stars. If, like me, you are part of the iPOD generation...then I'd say you are more suited to something a little more slim and stylish, not to take anything away from the G600, but there are more stylish cameras on the market without a doubt. Features and price make this camera hard to beat though.
Startup/shutter time is ridiculously fast, in fact one of the fastest in its class. You slide the lens cover across, point, let autofocus do its work, and click. The whole thing takes about 1.3 seconds and is as quick as my 35mm pocket camera. In fact you can speed things up if you turn autofocus off.
Sadly, this is also a tale of woe. My camera arrived with a pretty serious CCD defect, a cluster of missing pixels which have shown up on every photograph. Even with this defect though (Don't worry, I've sent it back for a replacement) I'd not hesitate to recommend this as a good all-rounder.
It is easy to use, batteries last forever, the SD never seems to fill up.
I would not be without this camera or a replacement for love nor money, it is everything you want from a camera, B/W colour and sepia, all manner of settings at the touch of a button.
As a first choice it was the best choice I could have made.
If anyone asked me to recommend a digital camera, this would be it.
A big advantage of these cameras is that they accept both of the common memory cards - so if you wish you can keep one of each in the camera at once, and once one's filled up with pix you swap via the menu system to the other.
I've got a replacement battery which cost me £11-odd as opposed to the £25+ that Minolta/Konica wants for its own branded model. Neither camera seems to care which battery's used, they both function perfectly with either.
Other than the above, I don't think my cameras are anything special really - there's plenty that do the same for about the same price. If given the chance to buy again I'd most likely go for one of the small Canons.
For £230+ I think we should get a case furnished with kit like this, but you don't. Black marks to all the makers for this, it's a universal comment.
