Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Availability to add SDHC memory capacity for moe recording time.
Good auto settings with great manual setting capability for enthusiasts.
Bad points:
Plastic lense cover makes funny sound when closed which gives an illusion of poor build quality...dissapointing!
No Mini-HDMI cable with boxed product.
Need more than one battery if you use the extra memory for more recording time.
