Peter, Hartlepool Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Well built camera, solid yet compact. Really like little flash unit, I just leave it attached to the camera. Image quality is excellent and the built in effects are really good. Can't fault the camera for the price.
Bad points:
Non yet.

Marie-Louise, Edenbridge Professional photographer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Small and lightweight. Excellent image quality - for stillls and movies. Great selection of lenses and accessories available. Very good low light capability. Dedicated movie button.
Bad points:
Would prefer articulated screen to move sideways as well. Wish there were more than one accessory point - eg for viewfinder AND mike. Screen size great for movie mode but only uses centre part for stills so quite small.

Annette, Aberdeenshire Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Brilliant price for this fabulous camera. Not quite the picture quality of my old Nikon DSLR, but far more portable. I'm quite impressed.
Bad points:
You have to 'unlock' the lens every time you switch on which is a wee bit of a nuisance, but nothing major.
