Caroline, Cork Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
High quality camera for a great price. Great quality pictures and a lot of different features.
Bad points:
Connecting the camera to wifi is proving impossible. The fact that there is no manual included with the camera is a major downfalll as it would be handy to read and flick through when need be. Yes it is on the internet but is 60 pages long. would have been so much better in a small book form.
