Matman, Edinburgh

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Looks and feels great in the hand.
Battery life
Plenty of options for all situations.
Attachable lenses and filters.
Low light focusing.
Flip up LCD
Dual Media slot
Very good value for money.
You know images are going to be top notch.
Bad points:
Can struggle to focus on bright seascapes and landscapes.
Images can be fuzzy.
wobbly lens (friend has same issue with his)
Always defaults to xD card if two media cards present.
Don't always trust the camera will focus correctly in 'P' mode.
Default image settings can be improved upon which needs fiddling.

Glenn, Merseyside UK

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Pretty much everything about C8080 is excellent.
Bad points:
Location of the on/off switch. I can't count the amount of times I have turned the camera off, whilst reaching for the shutter button ! - However this is a small price to pay for such a great camera.
