Matthew, Norwich

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
I find it really easy to use, not sure if this is because i've had Olympus cameras before.
Really easy can either use auto for pick and shoot or used the desired setting for specific situations.
Movie mode is good for a camera, with 5x optical zoom 8mega pix pictures provide good quality images.
processing speed quicker than my old Olympus, so get more pictures of the kids at the right time!!
Bad points:
Only bad point is red eye, occaisionally still get it even on reduction mode and seems to take longer to process image - so have had them blurred or missed the moment.
