Poor Quality Pics
Strengths: Size, Ease of use
Weakness: Reason for buying a digital camera
Pictures are of poor quality, my old Olympus at 2.1 MP does a bette job. Will have to sell it on Ebay now and try a canon or similar

Image Quality: Very good (Even better than DSC T1)
Image Compression: Very good (Even better than DSC T1)
Camera Price: Good
Menu Design: Good
Battery life: Good
Shutter lag: Good
Movie mode: The quality should be improved and should be recorded at 640x4800(30fps) w/mpeg4 .avi format
Connection Interface: The camera should has a builtin mini-USB interface to connect directly to the PC.
Battery: The camera should should take either AA x 2 or CRV3/RCRV3 battery and more details on the battery indicator status.
Flash: The range of the flash should be increased.
Lens position: could be better if positioned on the middle of the camera and has a viewfinder as well.
Button layout: Could have been become more organized.

Strengths: Small size, great design.
Weakness: Very poor photo quality without a flash.
While photo quality in strong light is good, I am very disappointed in low light photography without a flash. The camera has a "blur warning" which you have to turn off since basically anytime you take a picture without the flash it says "Photo is blurred, discard?". And indeed, the photos you take will be blurred. Also the flash is quite weak and is good only for close-up pictures.

Strengths: It is small and esay to use.
I think that it has great design with large LCD. Actually, it is very suitable for lady, and can operate very quickly and easily. I am very satisfied with it.
