Les, Musselburgh First time digital user.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Excellent camera with a wealth of features packed into a small easy to handle unit. For the price it is hard to beat especially the fact that it is powered by 2 AA batteries which makes it easy to use as they can be replaced without having to take a charger on holiday. Would recommend it to anyone especially as a first time digital camera.
Bad points:
No real problems found.

Nick, Bradford

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Manual control, good build quailty, price. - I bought the camera as a carry everywhere alternative to my dSLR, I wanted manual controls for more creativity and something reasonably small. Image quality is great upto about ISO 400, after that noise becomes a bit of a problem, but pictures are still usable and you can always convert to black and white foa grainy film effect!
Bad points:
Not as slim line as some so not quite as pocketable, small price to pay for the features though.
