Basing to specs that's more paper weight than digicam.

1: For example touting interpolation fraud is clear sign there isn't much things worth of mentioning in it. Same goes for "digital zoom" fraud.

2: Jeezz... 2 triple-A (no, not and Anti Aircraft Artillery) batteries, so battery life is lousy with 99.9% propability.

3: "Just over the table" flash range.

I also find interesting mention from one page advertising that:
Design and Specifications are subject to change without notice.

interpolation is just like digital zoom. anyone can zoom in with software and get a nice shot made, but when you zoom with the camera not good at all

these hybrids are excellent for the Younger kids keep them busy while you drive. but all not true some models I do find attention getters. andsome a total wase of money

major brand cameras are best suited fo todays needs

love my olympus, aa system, and let me tell you its hard for me to Purchase a new one too toooo many choices

example kodack and casio all look the same to me in one model

but today hp will mention that they'lmake you look slimmer by snaping a shot Lol
