This is the best of the several point & shoot cameras we've had. It takes great quality photos that can be blown up to a large size thanks to the 10MP.
Pros: * Lots of features/several shooting options that can help you with set up so that the image is good. * Nice big screen (but not too big) so you can clearly see what you're shooting * Compact but solid (ours has been dropped several times without incident!) * SDHC format, so no probs with memory cards * Takes good movies too with good sound pickup * Green mode for kids to use - this makes the camera into the simplest point and shoot, perfect for a 9ish year old kid to find her feet with photography * Good face recognition - the square even goes green so you know your faces aren't over-exposed
Cons: * OK for the more experienced photographer though you lack control over focus which can sometimes give disappointing results in close up/macro modes * Eats its batteries, you'll definitely need a back up, though we bought a cheap generic one and it works fine with both charger & camera
All in all, a very good buy and for the two "cons" I've found, the pros more than outweigh them, so I would highly recommend it if you're looking for something that takes really great photos but is essentially just a point-and-shoot.
We bought this M60 in June. Its easy to use and takes some great photos. The only problem is that it only lasted 6 months before it started making whirring noises and now doesn't work at all. We need to find a replacement to match the spec on the M60 for the same price but its very tricky!
