JP's answer (hablo Inglese y Aleman, pero no hablo Espanol, sorry):

Camera (my personal opinion):

  • Pro:
    • One of the newest cameras you can get
    • several usefull features: XL, Dissolve, ...
  • Contra:
    • Only 18fps
    • Problems with the Ektachrome E64T
  • Summary: Nothing special, but a nice lower-end workhorse
