Nick, Wales Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Super zoom with anti shake
Hd video works great
Small and compact
Lots of features if you know how to navigate the menu
Bad points:
Manually pop the flash up (I keep forgetting and the moments passed)
Not very good at flicking through images saved
(problem I'm having) when at full zoom, you have to press the shutter button quite firmly which often moves the shot (probably the same on them all)
