Toshiba M Series
News release makes the M700 sound like just what I've been looking for - extended zoom, manual controls in a 3 megapixel package at reasonable price. Anybody seen info on the M Series, other than in the Breaking News section here? What's the general take on reliability and function of previous Toshiba digicams?

Purchased directly from Toshiba. Fantastic camera! Easy to use after a couple of times, takes great zoom pictures and auto exposure bracketing is cool too. I think it is the best camera under $500 right now.

Thanks, goliver. I haven't read otherwise, so I assume that the body is plastic? What size SD card do you have and how many photos can you fit in high-res mode? Do you have any sample pics posted online for viewing?

Anyone else tested one of these yet? Would greatly appreciate some thoughts on your experience with it. TIA.

I just got mine yesterday 07-10 from toshiba. This is my first
digicam so I'm no expert. I did review quite a few cams and I have to admit price was a big factor. Your right about the M700 having
a lot for the money. Most of the Toshiba digicams got good reviews
so I took a chance, after all the M700 hasn't been reviewed by
anybody yet. The body is plastic but so is my 35mm nikon n6006.
The battery door is a bit flimsy but all else seems ok. You'll like
the 2.5in LCD. The camera is easy to use. I didn't find the menu
system hard to learn. It has an EVF with Diopter adjustment for
people with glasses like me. I also liked the lens adapter included
so I can use all my 52mm filters from my 35mm. It comes with a
16mb SD card and at the highest resolution Toshiba says you get
12 pics. I bought a 256mb lexar card so I should get 198 pics. I don't think I'm qualifyed to quote lag times and time between
shots but it seems pretty quick. The ACDsee software is easy.
Now I just need to learn how to post pics on the web! No stores
have the camera yet to see but I'm happy!! :D
