    Strength:

    Small, small, small--as can practically be produced to actually use. Zoom lens. Movie mode; "Best Shot" feature to toggle through pre-programmed shot scenarios (works like its supposed to work, too); Lithium Ion battery, which doesnt' get eaten like other digital camera horror stories I've heard. Easy to use docking and recharging station. BIG, BIG 2 inch LCD screen. Aesthetically pleasing and solid body.

    Weakness:

    None detected so far. However, it is more expensive than a lot of other 3+ mp digital cameras, but not for the same size parameters. Like a laptop, you pay for smaller size. My value rating is a 5 because comparing it to the few others that meet size and quality, its as good or better.

    I had been holding out to get a digital p/s till the price and features got right. That was sub-$400 for very small 3+ mp with zoom and other fun features such as mini-movies. The Casio met the parameters and the timing was right for me. After only a week, I'm sold. This is a fantastic little camera to carry all the time and snap off a shot when it "happens." I haven't been disappointed. Actually the first picture I took was of some flowers and a butterfly. It took it at full res in fine mode. The print from my Epson 1280 was far higher quality than I ever expected. Don't think I'm saying bag you film camera either good 35 mm p/s (like my Leica C1) or a quality SLR. I'm not. Digital just isn't there, yet. But for the intended purpose of a handy camera to catch the moment, this camera is exceptional.
