Eh soso. KInda disappointed
While overall it is fine I have a hard time handling it comfortably while shooting movies since the placement of the microphone is in a horrible spot (on the bottom right of the lens instead of being on the top left of the lens where the instruction manual shows it should be), Thus I almost always end up swiping my finger across the microphone during recordings which leads to the sound being cut out. Either that or it is the camera itself that is faulty during recordings and the sound cuts out by itself. I still need to do a few more tests on it to see if it is me or the camera itself. Along with this there is no grip design on front for easier handling like my old Canon Powershot A710 has.

poor low-light performance
This camera only takes usable pictures outside on bright days. Any situation with low to medium light produces extremely grainy, noisy images with spots in them regardless of how you set the camera. Also, you must manually set the ISO below 400 in all situations or the image will be too noisy.
This camera has a lot of good features but the image quality is not acceptable.
Don't just take my word for it. Read some professional reviews.

Dane memory cards bad.
The Dane memory cards are bad. Test at store before leaving. Tell store you like the camera but ask to exchange the card to a SanDisk 8 GB card. Show them the Dane does not work. It is a great little camera. If they don't change out the card, ask for a refund and walk away.

Purchased the camera at Sam's club. Going on a cruise and started taking pictures. Took a few pictures and viewed them on the camera, they looked ok. Turned the camera off. When turning the camera back on to take pictures a message came up on the screne memory card error. I had to purchase a new memory card and it worked fine.
