Steve, Holsworthy

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Please note I bought this for my wife and her number one criteria was it must work in the stables where the lighting is poor - this was the only one I found with a wide aperture (at a price I was willing to pay!), and it does the job very well.
Bad points:
Down side for me when I use it is that there is no viewfinder, but that was a "price" worth paying to get the wide aperture.

Richard, Bromsgrove

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The picture, build and sound quality are all excellent.
Bad points:
On the camera you can link together different scenes to make a simgle playback list, however the PC software which comes with the camera doesn't recognise these playback lists so you can't just choose to commit a single playback list to the PC, instead you have to go through the process of selecting you scenes again on the PC.
