Quentin, Lewes

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
A fantastic ability to capture low light level shots (tripod needed)
Bad points:
For an old timer like me too many buttons and too many options to be set via the micro screen making simple things like turning the flash on or off very difficult. I find it hard to understand why people think you need millions of functions on a camera to take a good photo.

Stu, Southampton

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
A very light but capable camera. A full range of functions from point and shoot through to very specific set-ups.
Bad points:
No real bad points - perhaps feels a little too plastic?!
