Bob, Newcastle Keen amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Can survive a lot more than my last camera, plus it takes pretty nifty under water pictures.
Bad points:
Images lack a bit of colour some times, also it came with an american plug, which for me wasn't a problem but it could be for someone else!

Jane, Plymouth Keen amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Appearance! - it looks fab, even better in reality than the pictures of it.
I've not tested its impact resistance, waterproof, snowproof etc abilities yet (I mainly chose it to be childproof!) but if they really do what they claim then I'd recomend to anyone who goes out and about with their camera. Not absolutely convinced of the shock resistance as the case is only rubberised at one end.
Movie mode has its own button which is so much quicker ans easier than scrolling through the Best Shot menu as on previous Exilims.
Still getting to know all the features but generally seems the same to previous Exilims I've used which I've always been happy with.
Bad points:
Very slow time lag between taking photos, seems to take a second or two to process each photo (I was aware of this before bought it as it had been mentioned in other reviews, but other features were more important to me).
Micro SD card is tiny and quite fiddly to use, not sure why it couldn't have been designed to use normal SD cards as camera is similar size to other cameras.
The standby feature is quite useful except that you can forget its not switched off as i discvered when I realised i'd taken an 8 minute long movie of the inside of my pocket!
Smaller battery than my previous Exilim so can't use as a spare battery or charger, and this one doesn't last as long.

EUNAN , Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Had it in use now for over three weeks, in the water, on the water and under the water. It may be a compact camera but the features and picture quality make it a great one. Then the fact its water, shock and dust proof!!

Duncan , Colwinston Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The fact that this product is bounce proof and water proof is something that I have been looking for for years, mainly due to the way I am. It has a good build quality, good picture quality, long battery life and I am overall very happy with it. Best of all in these bleak times, the price is very reasonable (far less than other similar brands)
Bad points:
No bad points so far.
