Eamonn, Chesterfield

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The image quality is superb.
The 20x zoom makes easy work of far away subjects.
Best quality by far is the excellent macro for close ups
By using rechargeable batteries I can normally take about 400 shots
Good buy for a novice photographer because of the on screen guide
