The CL65 is a sleek snapper with some fancy features built in, like WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, plus GPS for geotagging capability. WiFi can be a nice feature, but the GPS system is finnicky, and wildly inaccurate when it does work, sometimes tagging photos a half-mile from the true location (where other GPS units are within a few hundred feet). Add in some uninspiring photo quality and an occasionally frustrating touchscreen, and you get an overpriced hunk of gadgetry. To be clear, this is not a terrible camera, just an overpriced one, and only hardcore geotagging enthusiasts should give it a look -- and they'll even run into some issues.
