Matt, Lancashire Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Takes awesome photos
Bad points:
The user interface is really really weak and makes an other wise great product confusing and underwhelming… however help is on You Tube and the camera can be easily reconfigured. What you need to do is activate the 'Super Control Panel', here is the best video I found to talk you through the necessary steps http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_DI8uT6daA

The screen would benefit from more protection against knocks to the corners, a pouch or case is essential.

A step up from my XZ-1 in every way.
