Great bundle ; Build quality, ergonomics good, despite its bulk ; Very good photo quality outdoors ; Two storage options - camera is pretty fast while using Memory Sticks

Floppy disk storage - slow, uses too much power, adds bulk to camera ; Expensive for a 2MP camera ; No media included with camera ; Poor low light performance ; Missing features found on other $500 cameras (sound in movie mode, manual controls, etc.)

My general impression of this camera is bla! I feel very limited with this camera. The camera is heavy and clumsy. The lithium battery with this camera does not keep a charge, especially when it is cold outside. When not using it, turn the camera off, …
