    AWESOME point'n'shoot camera :big grin:

    My friends bought one from Japan about 6 months ago before Australia got them, and I was astounded... The LCD screen at the back is h0000000000000000g!!!

    Probably my choice of p'n's cameras at the moment, but very expensive, I'd prefer to spend a little extra and buy a real SLR.

    it's one of my most looked at, but rarely purchased cameras. besides being overpriced from the start, the lcd isn't very clear, is your only way of viewing what you're taking a pic of (no optical viewfinder for sunny days) takes memory stick duo pro only ($$$$) hard to find expensive battery, needs the craddle to charge etc, so most opt for any of the following:

    Canon Powershot s500 (5mp) or s410 (4mp)
    Fuji Finepix F700 (two 3.1mp image sensors produce a 4mp file with 6mp of detail)
    Casio ex-z40 (with Pentax lens, and very bright/detaidled 2" lcd)
    Casio qv-r51 (with Pentax lens, and very bright/detaidled 2" lcd)
    and my newest favorite the Casio ex-p600
    its a 6mp 4x optical zoom camera with a Canon lens, all metal but slim body, lithium ion battery, manual, apperature and shutter speed controls, extremely fast. But it's even pricier at $649. Thats going to be my pocket camera eventually to complement my 10d thats too big to bring everywhere.

    yea i was thinking about either the T1 or a Canon S410 or an S500. I used to own a Canon S10 and i HATED the slow start up times because of the lens opening.

    Yea, i read his review last night. But you have to read what he was doing. He tried doing pro shots with a point n shoot.
    :slap:

    I think the the camera is fantastic, but too damn expensive and that proprietary memory bs really pisses me off.

    What a stupid review.

    That guy bought a Sony consumer point and shoot and expected to get pro-level magazine print images from it, just because it has "5MP" stenciled on the side.

    Read the replies to that moronic post to get true reviews of the camera, in applications it was intended for :rolleyes:
