  • Accurate color and exposure; lens is sharp across the frame, Rugged, uniquely styled body is water, dust, shock, crush, and freezeproof (though see my concern below), 2.7" LCD display has good outdoor, low light visibility, Auto Picture mode features auto
  • Small build for a ruggedized camera, Good low-light performance

Editors Didn't Like

  • Photos are noisy and have lots of detail smudging, even at ISO 80, Some highlight clipping and purple fringing at times (use the DRange tool for the former), Redeye a problem, though removal tool in playback mode works well, No optical image stabilization
  • Our first test camera experienced some water damage, Slow recycle times, Dated, complicated interface
