I don't know how the reviewer could say there is almost no noise at ISO 200. The test image shown at 200 looks more like 400 than 100.

I am so impressed with this versatile camera. The iA feature pretty much takes care of everything. A very easy to use, take anywhere camera. The movie mode takes great video in all formats, very impressive. So many people are surprised as to the quality of pictures it takes. Although quite a small camera, it certainly packs a lot of punch for the money and it all fits into your pocket. Although, if you purchase this camera from one of the hard sellers, the battery does last quite a long time, not the 15 min's they tell you. Bottom line, you wont be disappointed with this little gem, lots of great features too.

A very good review with not too much tech talk to confuse the likes of myself.Thanks.

Excellent review - most helpful. I particularly liked the explanatory illustrations. My only (very mild) criticism is that I would have liked to see a decent picture of the back of the camera. Well done!
