I like the font too. It's helping me put off getting new glasses for another couple of months. I actually think this camera would be a good choice for a starter popint and shoot. It's got plenty of features to learn with and you are not sinking a whole lot of money into the pit we call DSLR cameras. It's also a good size and that means you are more likely to carry it with you which means taking more pictures. I say get one and use it until you outgrow it and have learned more of what you would want to spend more money on. Heck, it's only $149... that's like two tanks of gas in the Buick.
