Released June, 2010
The Pros:Resists all types of weather and rain effectively. Very small format, easily fits in a shirt pocket. Directions are very clear and simple.
The Cons:Smaller lens can manage pictures only of moderate quality. Limited zoom capability doesn't have much use. Panorama feature is slightly glitchy, images don't tend to get stitched together quite right.
