It is almost four months since my wife and I purchased this camera and we have not been disappointed. It has exceeded our expectations, taking wonderful pictures of our two boys. The images are sharp and the colors natural. The camera performed well on our vacation - perhaps a little too well since we took some 200 or so pictures. Outdoor shots are excellent and indoor shots are acceptable. We can get about 150 to 200 pictures on the battery that came with the camera. We highly recommend this camera.
