Image for High Quality Tiny Digital Camera

I purchased this camera about a year ago, and have sense put it through its paces and then some. With it being the exact same size as my cell phone it is very easy to carry around with me, a don't even notice it in my pocket. The camera, when I bought it, comes with the camera, a dock/charger, rechargable battery, usb cable, power adapter and drivers cd. The dock/charger is small, simple and sleek, holding the camera backwards in its cradle so you can view the display screen while docked. Please also note that the dock is not required to charge the camera, for travel I regularly just take the power adapter for the dock, it will plug right into the size of the camera for charging. Picture quality is great, I mean it's a 5 MP camera so the output is pretty standard for the class. With many different picture modes you can always find a mode that fits your picture situation. The only thing I wish I sometimes had is a view finder. During bright daylight and other situations it would be very nice, however it would also increase the size which was one of my main purchase points. As well as pictures the camera will also capture video and audio. The video is a nice feature but it is a little block sometimes and the videos are saved in .mov format on the memory card which can make them a little difficult to deal with, I would much rather see them in mpeg. All in all, for the investment I don't think you could ask for better performance! -Nate
