david, Ingatestone Experienced amateur

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Packs a lot of functions into a small space
Bad points:
Slow to take a picture once you've pressed the shutter button so can miss a shot of something that moves.
The extended lens partially obscures the view finder.
The parallax error from the viewfinder is obvious in close ups, annoying to a user used to a SLR camera, but you have to allow for it or move to using the screen, which is bad in bright light
