Mariah, Telford, Shropshire

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Was my Dad's first digital camera and having a Cannon camera myself meant I already knew what allot of functions were. Because it is not too technical he did find easy to pick up.
Bad points:
The memory card is quite fiddly to get out of the camera and when its your new toy it makes it harder because you worried you might break the little catches! Also some of the more detailed instructions about choosing the right feature for your camera are not very clear in the instruction booklet

Good points:
This camera was bought for my 13 year old daughter as the price was reasonable and I researched websites for feedback on the performance. It has so far lived up to the good reviews it had been given.
