I continue to be impressed by this camera. The zoom in excellent and when you enlarge the photo the detail is amazing. I love the settings, and have shot the beach at dusk, and even an evening shot in a pavilion that turned out great. I wish it had come with a plug to go to my computer so that I don't have to remove the card each time, but other than that, I can't wait to take more photos. Very very happy with this camera.
No user manual! Can't always get to a computer to load a CD (might not have ithe CD close by anyway) to look up a function/feature of this camera. I get it that CDs are cheaper and you might be saving a tree or two.and maybe some shipping expense. But when I try to download the manual from your web site it just shows blank pages and then crashes my computer. Very poorly done, really detracts from the value of the camera.
I started photography in the early 60's with an SLR film camera. I wanted a versatile compact camera for quick shots of everyday events. The L30 surpassed all expectations in ease of use, picture quality, and ease of use with the auto-focus feature. The auto-flash feature works well indoors as well as shooting subjects in the shade and low light levels. The optics on this camera are top notch and battery life is exceptional. I plan to buy another model in the future. I have recommended this camera to several others and have gotten great feedback from them as well. A great investment.
Great AA battery capability. Rechargables are great until it dies and you have no charger! Bad is the same dang battery door issues of breaking or easily breakable. Bad design.
