Larry, Newcastle upon Tyne

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent picture quality still and video with the advantage of dual focusing. Competitive price, and as it's my first digital camera a huge leap from my old Canon Sureshot 1980 vintage
Bad points:
Would have liked a more comprehensive manual without going online to read it.
