Yucks. I've used it several times, and I'm not impressed with it.

I'm prefer the F707 (or it's predecessor, F505) rather than the P5.

The P5 is over-rated. The buttons are placed too closely together and makes shooting suck.

SLRs rule! :devil: :bsmilie:

Huh? Neckstrap is provided what. If you don't use, what's there to complain??

Get those comfy neckstraps (lot's of sponge) for $40 odd. Might save you from a sprained neck one day :D :bsmilie:

okok.. say between this and the canon ixus 330, which one would u guys recommend i get? i know they can't be directly compared since one's a 2mp and the other is a 3mp cam, but for the bang of the buck, which one should i get?

maybe someone can help me decide if it's advisable to fork out the extra to get the p5 over the ixus 330... wat are the pros and cons of each cam? is it true that the ixus is capabel of semi auto functions while the p5 is a strictly p&s cam?
