I have one and love it. 8x10's are better than with my Nikon 35mm Point&amp;Shoot. The low-light abilities are phenomenal. <BR><BR>The only problems I've read about are battery life and focusing. <BR><BR>Re battery life: I took mine on a trip to the UK recently and didn't have to use my spare battery once - just recharged each evening (had to buy a dual-voltage international recharger separately). I prefer to use the optical viewfinder rather than LCD for taking photos, but still reviewed and deleted quite a bit on-screen, so I wasn't exactly miserly with the power.<BR><BR>Re focusing: Apparently low-light focusing was a problem on early releases, but I haven't had any trouble with mine (I uploaded the latest "firmware" operating system upgrade to my camera from the Kodak website right away). Indeed, I got some great indoor shots of cathedrals (no tripod, no flash, automatic settings).<BR><BR>Be sure to get the $100 rebate, and shop around for CompactFlash cards - the 16MB card that came with mine was grossly inadequate. (A typical 3MP JPEG is around 0.8-1MB)<BR><BR>Dave

I've posted a few photos taken with my DC4800 at: <BR>http://pages/prodigy.net/drsawyers <BR> <BR>Keep in mind that these have been reduced/compressed significantly for the internet. The original quality is quite a bit better; but they should give you some idea of the color, focus and low-light abilities. <BR> <BR>I'm especially proud of the interior shot of Lincoln Cathedral. This was taken "off-hand" (no tripod, auto settings, no flash) and would never have worked with my P&S 35mm camera.
