Picked up the X-5 for my wife...

Picked up the X-5 for my wife yesterday. I took it out this morning and snapped a few pictures, just because I was interested to see what this cheap little camera can do. I basically left it in Auto mode, as I know that's what she'll shoot in. The only changes that I really did was while in auto mode, I did one shot in the landscape mode, and a few in the "macro" mode. I've attached a couple of samples here. but I've also uploaded the high resolution images onto my dropbox in case anyone is interested in pixel peeping. (see link below) All of these are straight out of camera, NOTHING done to them at all, other than re-sizing the ones I've uploaded here.

Great photos!
Do you know if the X5 can take a still image whilst shooting video, without interruption to the video?

My son is planning a trip to Eurpoe in 2013, spending over a month "seeing it all". I'm wondering if this would be a good option for him. He's not into photography as much as I am, so maybe changing lenses with a DSLR may not be his thing. This seems like a nice travel camera for him.

Not sure if it can do that or not. I NEVER use a camera for video.
