Pros:Appearance is quality, not tinny.

Cons:Not enough memory from factory.

This is my fourth generation digital camera and it is worth the wait. The large viewing screen is great both indoors and outdoors. Pictures are very easy to take, even without reading the manual. Included is a quick start guide and it is all I needed to get started. I purchased mine on board a cruise ship and within minutes had taken pictures. The only problem I have with it is the small 16MB memory that comes standard with it. Problem solved as soon as I got home. Larger memory is relatively inexpensive. Yes, the dock is necessary to hook to the PC, but I don't see it as a negative. Finally a digital camera that doesn't look and feel cheap.

Price paid: $179
