Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent camera, packed with features, easy to use and great image quality. Ideal for beginners or those more experienced with photography. Much smaller than an SLR so its easier to carry but not so small as to make it fiddly to use like many of todays compacts.
Bad points:
A bit heavy on the batteries so always carry a spare set.
Flash needs to be raised manually, but that can be postive when you dont want to use the flash and instead rely on the camera to adjust automaticaly for low light conditions.
