Just bought this camera for a trip I am planning. I have been playing around with it for about a week now and absolutely love it. I didn't like the looks of the camera at first however have discovered that it's odd look makes it very easy to hold on to. I also just purchased a small travel tripod (folds to 10" and extends to 40") to helpo steady the camera when doing longer exposures at night. It is easy to use and offers several additional lens kits that you can purchase for it (look online rather than through the stores). It seems to eat up batteries faster than I expected however it uses regular AA batteries so they can be picked up pretty much anywhere rather than trying to recharge specialty battery packs. So far, I give this camera an excellant rating.
