One of the best points is that it fits well in the hand. Primarily bought to take pictures in the rain when doing site visits it has meant nomore worries about getting the camera wet.

Jing, Milton Keynes Point & shoot

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Tough is the name and expectation, and didn't bother to take" too much" care as I'm actually quite clumsy with cameras. Functions nice, filters sometimes help to cover the shortage of image quality: well, still it's good enough as a compact~ like it much!
Bad points:
Wait for technology to improve the image quality~

David, Birmingham Point & shoot

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
On the whole it is a nice solid looking chunky camera. The lens is centrally place so your fingers can never get in the way. It comes with a strong strap. The software supplied takes care of picture management once uploaded (though looks dated). I'm sure this camera would survive a bit of rough, but personally I'm not going to extremes.
Bad points:
The oblong plastic surround, around the lens looks a little fragile. There is a removable ring around the lens which can be removed for lens accessories however I do not see many people using this feature and this part of the camera can hold tiny amounts of water as the ring compartment is not water resistant. The plastic cover for the monitor screen at the back of the camera is probably better than toughened glass as it would give on impact. As with all camera monitors in bright light, one can only uses it as a guide.
