Kevin, Brotton

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
it is so compact and handy.will fit into a shirt pocket.So easy to use yet has deeper proper photographer functions.Image quality is very good so far,I haven't used the cameras additional settings for firework displays etc.
I am just an amatuer point and shoot photographer and i would recommend this camera.
Bad points:
Due to it's size it can be a bit awkward to hold and use one handed for fear of dropping it,I got round this by fitting a simple camera wrist strap which I slip over whenever i need to use it one handed.Also NOT a Critique of this camera but since I carry the camera most of the time in my pocket,I place it inside a fairly tight fitting draw string bag that I had left over from housing some mini ear phones,this protects the camera from fluff or anything else in the bottom of your pockets.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very small, easy to carry around. Can point and shoot a picture.
Bad points:
Difficult to see the screen in bright light, even with a screen cover. A view finder would make this the perfect product.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Compact. VR function is useful.
Bad points:
Having a viewfinder would be nice, for those who are a little bit more serious about taking good pictures. Keeping the camera away from the body due to having to use the monitor increases camera shake and the VR function doesn't always compensate for it.
