Chris, Mansfield Like European touring holidays

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use in basic mode - the auto systems work well. mine was stolen from my hotel room after only eight days, so I didn't get to try much of the 'special' settings. The shots that I had until then were really pleasing - viewed on the television in my room. I'm sufficiently impressed to replace the camera with exactly the same model. Zoom works relly well.
Bad points:
Feels a bit plasticky. Image stability at large zoom difficult to handle without tripod.

Bad points:
The DVD drive is too close to the microphone and you pick up the 'whirring' of the disk on the mic the whole time your recording

Confirmed purchaser Driving holidays in Europe

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Massive optical zoom. Good features/special effects. Will fit into a patch pocket and is very light. Good viewing screen - bright enough to use anytime - I went to Bosnia in July and had no problems filming in midday sun. Handy, easy to use remote supplied.
Bad points:
Feels a bit plasticky. On zoom you really do need to have some form of tripod or other method of steadying the camera once you get to 10X and above - a beanbag type of pad to rest it on works fine. (This is true of any camera).
