Those of you who know me personally have probably seen this feller... this is my current camera. Yes, I really did get the red, and I like it! This thing has got lots of zoom, mexapixels, and video. I really like how it feels in my hands too. I would recommend this camera highly to someone just getting started... but if you want to be able to adjust shutter speed or aperture, it doesn't have that capability.
All around, though, it is a sweet little camera!
