I've had this very small and neat camera for over a year now. The videos it takes are good but the photos are mediocre at best. It's hopeless for taking pictures of children, with the slightest movement from them resulting in a useless blurred image. If you have static kids, perhaps this is the camera for you - otherwise save your money.
Thanks for the somewhat barbed "review" suggesting that my photography skills are the problem. I don't claim to be an expert, but no expert would buy a camera such as this anyway.
It remains a fact that when I compare a typical photo from this camera, taken on Auto setting, with a similar photo taken on a much older Powershot A700, it rarely compares well.
No amount of sniping changes that.
