I have waited a long time for a non-SLR digital camera to come along with the Foveon imager. I finally found one and bought it last summer (2005). It is very easy to use. It only comes with a 32-meg card, so at the best setting you may only get a few pictures on it. I picked up two 500-meg (the largest size the camea will take) memory cards. Depending on the detail of a picture, using the best detail setting I can get 55-80 pictures on one card.

- The camera has many features and settings. We have mostly just used it on 'Auto' mode. I don't usually worry about having enough light on the subject because of the great software where you can correct for under or over exposure very easy with just a sliding of a tool-bar button.

- The pictures I've taken in the 'RAW' format have been over 7.2 meg. Depending again on the detail, the pictures I've converted to full jpeg have been as large as 6-meg.

- Due to the nature of the imager, where each pixel point captures the full red/green/blue spectrum, the effective detail is much more than 4.5 meg when compared to other cameras with the normal cmos imager. I had the opportunity to stand in the end-zone for a Phialdephia Eagles football game last year, and I took shots of plays running out of the endzone. The ones i blew up to 8x10's were incredible. You could make out the faces of people half a stadium away when a regular 5 megapixel camera would show a blur.

-Downsides? Well, the caera has a built in automatic lense cover that opens/closes automatically when you turn the camera on or off. That's good. But they also have a plastic cap, attached by a string, that can go over the lens cover as well. When the camera is just in your hand, that cap has a tendency to come off. No big deal, just more of a nuisance.

The editing software is very powerful, and generally easy to use. Due to the nature of the imager and the RAW file format, if you choose to do your own editing (it has auto editing options as well), you may notice a slight blue tint to the pics. This is easily over come by adjusting the color filter.

The size, in my opinion, is a plus too. It has a nice sized display in the back. The battery charge lasts a long time too.

All in all, I am very happy with the camera. The price has come down a lot since I got mine which makes it even more of a great deal. AS mentioned, the imager is what is key in a camera, and this has the best one out there. No mosaicing to worry about. And none of the other goofey things that can afflict CMOS imagers. If you are looking for a camera that will do great work make great images even larger than 8x10's, this is the one you should get.
