- Image quality Like any small sensor compact, images are noisy. No worse than comparable cameras, though, most of which are a little larger.
- Video quality Video is great for this type of camera. Would be nice to have a high-speed mode, though.
- Battery life Near the top of the class for battery life. Only charges in-camera. An external charger is optional/extra.
- Design and form factor A little too small, and the next model up is a little too big.
- Durability I wouldn't drop it, not even once. Can't really rate any non-pro camera more than so-so on durability. Get a 3rd party warranty if you're concerned.
- Speed (start-up time, lag) It's fast. Really fast for a long zoom.
- Ease of use Some of the menus could be easier, and some features seem limited (no 360 pano in vertical, no manual settings). Turn off "tile menus" to improve things.
