James, Dartford Point & shoot

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Very Attractive looking camera, compact and easy to use. Good value for money and for a simple, sleek point and shoot does a good job.
Bad points:
Pictures aren't as good as I'd hoped. Best to use one of the 'scene' modes rather that Auto for taking pictures. Would possibly look towards an ixus if given the choice again.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Neat and easy to carry. Good for point and shoot - probably good for more advanced photography.
Bad points:

William, Larne, Co Antrim Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Take it anywhere, anytime. I carry it in the glove compartment of the car so that I always have it with me. It is easy to use and produces great images. Downloads to the computer easily and so can be edited, printed, transferred or emailed. I find it a very useful tool.
Bad points:
None.

Digital Cameras Buyers' Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Ultra-slim 10 megapixel camera that boasts a striking lightweight body, NIKKOR 3x zoom, 2.5-inch LCD monitor, Scene Auto Selector, high ISO, Quick Retouch and advanced anti-blur and portrait technologies.

  • 2.5-inch LCD monitor with anti-reflection coating to enhance visibility in bright sunlight.
  • NIKKOR 3x zoom lens offers outstanding precision and sharp resolution. (35mm 135 film-format equivalent: 35-105mm.)
  • 4x anti-blur automatically counters blurred images in four different ways. Electronic VR (Vibration Reduction) reduces the effect of camera shake. High ISO (up to 2000) light sensitivity reduces the risk of blurred images with fast-moving subjects or in low-light. Motion detection compensates for camera and subject movement. Best Shot Selector (BSS) automatically selects the sharpest of up to 10 sequential shots.
  • Scene Auto Selector selects the optimum Scene mode for popular photographic situations.
  • Smart portrait system: advanced automatic features for perfect portraits. Smile Mode takes the shot when your chosen subject smiles. Blink Proof takes two pictures and saves the one where your subjects eyes are open.
  • Quick Retouch lets you retouch images taken under poor conditions so they appear sharp and vibrant. The original image stays intact and the camera quickly creates a duplicate image with the best balance of contrast and saturation.
  • 10.0 megapixel resolution lets you capture outstandingly detailed images, crop creatively and produce stunningly sharp poster-size enlargements.
  • Advanced Face Priority AF with in-camera Red-eye Fix lets you quickly detect and focus accurately on up to 12 faces in the frame, and corrects false eye color due to flash the instant you take the shot.
  • 16 scene modes offer optimized settings for popular photographic styles, effects and locations.
  • D-lighting creates pleasing results by correcting strong shadows to rescue underexposed images, or shots taken with excessive backlight.
  • Movie recording with sound.
