Phil, Southampton Keen amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very quick from cold start to capture
Robust feel - (but)
Tilt screen a nice feature
Love the panorama feature and the integrated playback
Bad points:
Despite feeling very robust, the non-covered lens in transport is an issue. Earlier models I used had a metal door over the lens.
A shutter button on the back of the camera under the screen would be ace for better selfies - it is awkward trying to press the shutter if wearing gloves.
Not the easiest to use with gloves - bring back the side touch functions.
