I just bought one myself, and I love it already.
It is a great piece of technique!

I am planning on buying that same camera and after serious, intensive research, I think it is a good choice. I presently have a Sony camera but I deceided to buy another one because the one I have doesn't have an optical zoom
Go ahead and buy it. Its a good choice

its good PnS camera(I think it has no manula setting) but in this price range u have better cameras with manual setting(minilta F200).And p8 is not powered with AA baterries-big minus for me.

What about the movie clip facility? is the 640x480 pixels enough?
how big will the picture be on the screen before it gets too grainy?

My P8 is just a few days old with me, one thing I like best in this camera is the video. There is not much noticeable graininess in the video even if set to full screen in the PC. The video even looks clearer in a full screen TV, but there is a 1/3 inch black "blank view" on top and bottom of the video. It records at only 16fps, so you should keep your hand as steady as possible, and pan very slowly while recording to achieve a really smooth video, otherwise if you move too fast, the video will be very jerky.
