John, London Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
So far so good, used the camera on a ski holiday and it coped well with the bright sunshine and reflection from the snow. Not yet used that many of the functions on offer but I have return good results. The quality of its video is very good.
Bad points:
Although the video quality is impressive the sound of the zoom motors can be clearly heard if used in quiet situations.
Screen is difficult to use in bright conditions, but that seems to be common with most cameras.
