valerie, Bath Just point and shoot

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
As this was a gift I didnt use the camcorder to its fullest potential, but when I did use it I particularly liked the weight of it. It wasnt heavy and so fitted in my bag nicely. The quality of the picture is exceptional and it has a magnificant zoom lens so that you can take video pictures of things far in the distance.
Bad points:
I think the only thing that I can negatively say about the camcorder is it may be a little on the small side for someone who has large hands.
