Chaz, I like Rock Climbing

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
tough and durable, i dont have to worry about it when im out and about, for example i use it when i go rock climbing
Bad points:
some of the features are a bit tricky to learn, having said that they are worth the small effort of working them out, things like the landscape feature give me some really dazzling shots from halfway up a cliff
