Strengths:    Ease of use, you can take good photos without having to configure to much. The automatic setting works well in most conditions.

Battery life, so far haven't ran out of battery even after taking 70+ pics in a row.

Weaknesses:    Darkness, the camera doesn't seem to work well in low or no light.

No view finder, the lcd screen is all you get.

Bottom Line:   
Good, lightweight, easy to use camera.

Takes great picstures in auto mode and good action pics on the A (shutter priority) setting.

Features, has many features only found on more expensive cameras.

Not what I need for sports photography but good performer for every day use.
