First off, you must use the 4 megapixel mode. not the 5mp. the 5mp mode has a bug and photos are terrible.. who knows.. and guess what.. who cares. surprise!!! megapixels means nothing.

This camera takes incredible pictures. I have owned many cameras and operated even more, including:
canon s230, s400, A70
and others I cant think off hand. but regardless, this cameras photos beats them all. Why? youl have to see for yourself. The photos are not really really sharp like canon and others, but the way the colors BLEND together, and the overall exposure just looks amazing. some photos almost have an HDR look to them. best photos ever.
video is good too, best part is the small size of them. uses mpeg4 codec, they look GOOD. Love this camera, goes everywhere with me.
The sound is kinda crappy in video mode. my old kodak v530 sound was easily twice as good. also, no anti-shake (thats worth anything) all video shooting needs to be held steady. Has a bug in the white balance were it does not hold its setting and sometimes it will not change without "cycling" through all the modes first.. very weird.. anoying.
overall. wicked awesome. the iso isnt really high compared to other cams out today.. but the iso400 is NOT blochy with crappy color and terrible noise. instead, its just slightly grainy... and looks fine! LCD is good in the sun too, no problems there.
some sample pics:
all woods shots are at max iso 400
