I consider myself a professional...

Strengths: 10xzoom lens. XD speedy picture card, lovely resolution monitor. It is a real slr digital camera. Shooting from any distance you can get what you want.

Weakness: No optical vewfinder, Needs experience when shooting in low light conditions, but it will do.

I consider myself a professional photographer. This is my second digital camera. I had the feeling of slr's when I used this camera. I recommend it for those who take care of every single detail of their photos, but for non-experienced photographers they will find some difficulty to stabilize the lens. It needs some experience to get your photos as sharp as you aim to.

Strengths: Dual media (xD, SmartMedia), 10x Optical Zoom, Manual & Automatic modes

Weakness: Night shots need a tripod, size of camera

I've owned this C-730UZ for quite awhile now and have used it extensively while on travel or just around the house. It is a little bigger then other models and doesn't fit easily into your pocket for those short weekend trips, but for real photo taking and quality, this is it. With a rotary dial to choose from a multitude of photo modes, programmable modes, 10x Optical Zoom, and an extensive...

Strengths: Optical zoom , manual functions

Weakness: you must have a stabiliser or a tripod if you want to take clear pictures from a far angle, and taking pictures in the dark could be a problem if you don't know how to use it

This is my first digital camera...

Strengths: Awesome zoom. Fairly easy to use menus and other features. Really like the dual capability of using both the XD-picture cards and SmartMedia cards. Ability to use the cameras as a simple point.

Weakness: Lens feels loose, I don't think it has an effect on image quality though.

This is my first digital camera but have use several other models in the past. I got this camera on a Thursday night and went to a St. Louis Cardinals game Friday night. I had very limited expereince with the camera (2 hrs) and was able to take some really good shots from center field. The 10x zoom lens is nothing short of amazing, with the 3x digital zoom turned on you could see the batters...

This is my first digital camera. I...

Strengths: 10x optical zoom

Weakness: 16mb card, would like it to be smaller but it has a 10x optical zoom!

This is my first digital camera. I bought it cause it has a 10x zoom compared to the 3x on most cameras. To me 3.2mp is more then enough. When shot correctly, the picture quality is amazing. Yes it is kinda complicated, so if you just want something quick and easy don't buy this, but for my needs, I sacraficed .8 mp's for 7x more optical zoom. I think it's WELL WORTH IT! 3.2mp's seems to way more...
