very compact design, fits well in a shirt pocket
auto-focus locks on right away, no waiting, great for candid pictures
low light photos are surprisingly good for a camera of this size, minimal grain
minimal lag time between photos, good for taking several in sequence
menus are well designed and intuitive to navigate
image stabilization works very well and completely accounts for minor shake
door on the battery compartment is a bit flimsy and easy to break off
