Good points:
There are a lot more functions than I would expect from such a compact camera

Me, Uk Keen amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Sharp pictures, don't just use default settings. "Exceeds expectations".
Bad points:
Some controls liable to get moved by mistake, only a light touch needed.

Default picture settings give a slightly soft and slightly cold image, but these can be adjusted.

Hayley, Birmingham Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Fantastic point and shoot with really good image quality being able to shoot in raw. A lovely retro film camera look with a big display and moveable display so can take pictures from above and below with ease and always good for selfies at parties.
Bad points:
Not amazing in low light but that is just due to the small flash. Also wish it came with the wider lens

Richard, Chester Professional photographer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Great features for a small camera including the PSAM dial you get on full size DSLRs and changeable lenses. Lots of software effects which you used to have to use something like photoshop to achieve. A great bit of kit.
Bad points:
Lots of plastic but still looks cool.
