I've used them with pretty good results. However, they don't adjust for 
varying light conditions as a 'better' camera would and work best in sun 
or bright light conditions. In the lower light on the trail, waterfalls 
deep in the woods etc, the pictures are underexposed.

If you do use one, the 400 speed would probably be best all 'round.
