James, Kingussie Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Compact, lightweight though sturdy quality build, very clear image, reasonably easy to work out the general features .
Bad points:
Would have much preferred it to have a small hard copy of the Users Manual rather than having to download a number of A4 size pages which are not so easy to carry around.
