The camera takes exeptionally good pictures - point and shoot seems to cover almost any situation well!
Shutter lag is real, however, unless you press the shutter button half way down so the camera can focus...THEN shutter lag is absent. SO, shutter lag is really still an issue, but it is shorter than almost any other digital camera I tested and researched.
Aftermarket replacement batteries are plentiful and very inexpensive (on ebay).
The Xd picture card that comes with the camera is too small for most people, but, then again, a new, bigger card is inexpensive when you compare what you get...
The FUJI software may be useful to some, but if you just load the USB driver, then you can download pictures almost instantaneouly via the enclosed USB cable and use your favored viewing and editing program to mess with them.
The 3" LCD is fantastic!
Battery life is great as well...
Overall, this is simply the best digital camera in its size and pixel range. There is nothing that comes close to its size, features, picture quality and price.
