Bought this camera in Black yesterday, ain't used it much just took a few test shots. The build of the camera is great, the LCD is big and bright and it is also packed with many cool features such as travel date etc. The 10x zoom works really well... I think this is the idea camera for travellers that don't want to carry round an SLR, as this camera has packed 10x zoom into a fairly small package.
I ordered an 8gb and 2x 2gb memory card by Play.com to use in my camer and they work great. I can fit so many pictures from this camera (9megapixel).The video is in HD so it takes up to much memory so if you wan to make alot of videos you'll either have to try bigger then 8gb or keep transfer them from the card so it can be reused.
I would highy recommend this camera... Its one of the top cameras in 2008 :) One thing i have heard is it don't shot well in low light... i can not comment on this as i have not tried but all of the test shots i have looked at have been of great quaity (As taken on SLR). Enjoy!
