David, Suffolk Just point and shoot

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent value - long battery life - easy to use - good optical and digital zoom lens - Came with spare battery - can take stills pictures from video even during recording ! - Massive storage capacity using 32Gb SDHD card (well over 10 hours in normal mode) - more than enough for a two week holiday. Very high quality picture if you use HD mode. This is the perfect camcorder if you just want it to take on holiday or around the home - light and easy to carry around, can be put round the shoulder or attached to you belt. More than enough features for most people.
Bad points:
Did not come with memory card so had to purchase one at extra cost - 32Gb is more than enough (for a two week holiday. - I purchased a Transcend 32Gb SDHC card off of Amazon - works with no problems and was much cheaper than the high street. The shutter does not open and close automatically, but you soon remember after a while. You feel a bit silly when you start to record and find the shutter is still closed!

Anna , Sheffield Just point and shoot

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very good picture quality and ease of use. It is also very light and compact and the zoom is very good.
Bad points:
Although the zoom is good, the button for the zoom can be a little tempremental and so you can be waiting for it to work and then when it does it doesn't always stop when you let go.
