Richard, Warrington Point & shoot

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
simple to use and affordable. taken as a camera that will capture social occasions and basic snaps you can't really go wrong for the money - although i would invest in rechargable batteries as recommended by canon.
Bad points:
short battery life. limited detail in blacks/darks colours. slight loss of colour accuracy overall. nothing in the extremes, however.
