Perfect size for hiking or any time you don't want to be weighed down but still want to be able to get some great shots! I purchased this camera to take with me on a week long hiking trip because the camera that I owned was too large and heavy to carry.
After initially getting used to it, I find it to take very good pictures for the size and weight. It very easily slips into almost any pocket easily and the battery life is actually pretty good. I have to admit the first time I used it, I didn't turn it off properly and discovered the batteries were dead when I went to use it, however, that was definately "operator error" on my part and I haven't had an issue with it again since then. As is typical with cameras of this type, I find the speed to be a little bit slow for action shots but since I primarily use it for scenery, etc., this isn't an issue for me.
I would recommend this camera for anyone needing a small, lightweight camera that takes good pictures for a reasonable price!
