We have some test pics, being Sunday I couldn't buy rechargeables.
I only took a few shots on automatic mode, dim light, almost dark (the 1 euro Ikea lamp is only ambiental and a laptop display doesn't really help me read a book).
ISO value has been 200. Basically I was only pointing and shooting. Auto-focus seems just fine considering the darkness and so does the flash, it didn't overexpose anything as I took the picture from close range.
As expected, one of the best buys on the market, back in the day.
PS: In two of the photos you might notice the late Panasonic DMC LZ2, purchased in 2005, a solid compact, functioning perfectly until its impact with the floor in June 2011. A previous post here is relevant concerning my attachment to that camera.

Tonight I'll get my hands on a Canon A720 IS, 2008 model I believe, mint condition. Yes, I'm also into a certain type of compacts that generation. Those cameras make me happy. They require AA rechargeable batteries instead of NitroMh Lithium whatever and their optical zoom reaches 6x, which is something considering I need a camera fitting in my pocket.
Significant amounts of time I used to spend taking pictures. I plan to do it again, to see what happens. I might be a genius and spend less time for a nice photo.
I am located in Berlin and for the time being the pictures will look accordingly. I don't know if I'll avoid clichés.
I wish you a happy viewing over these photos I took some years ago, now I hate many of them
