Released August, 2008
The Pros:Very compact, can be tucked into a purse easily. Video looks great, very sharp and clear on a larger screen. Controls are very simple, easy to work with.
The Cons:Not very well balanced, feels awkward at first and takes some practice. Feels a little flimsy, like it would break into a dozen pieces if you dropped it. Still shots seem a little blurry.
