I have some pics I took at the Monterey Bay Aquarium with my Pearl. I defy you to tell the difference between my Pearl pics and some taken with my Fuji camera. I got some of the most beautiful shots of jellyfish you've ever seen. It all comes down to knowing how to work with the camera. I had those same pics developed, and they are just as clear and clean as they looked on my screen. If you have the white balance set correctly, the zoom set right, and your hand is steady, you can get some amazing shots. I use my Pearl camera every day. It beats having to lug around yet one more device. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
