Peter, LONDON Point & shoot

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good price for a rugged camera -perfectly fine pictures, easy enough for my four-year-old girl to use, which was what we were looking for.
Bad points:
would like to have some sort of lens cap for the window the lens shoots through. Seems to clean up easily enough though.
