Brian, Argyll

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great camera available at a reasonable price. Does what is says on the box and does not rely on specialised lithium rechargable batteries. You do not have to worry about flat batterys just keep a pack of standard AA's handy.
Bad points:
Movie clips appear to be restricted to 40 seconds. Don't know why. Also you can select movie clip sound or variable zoom but not both.
