Easy to use and lightweight, minimal set up required. Fits the hand nicely. I got some great shots, I think it's excellent for amateur to semi-professional use.

Kevin, Skipton A point and shooter

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use and works well. Best flash in a small camera I have used - but also works well in low lighting without a flash.
Bad points:
I haven't got to grips yet with taking pictures off onto my computer. A bit more difficult being a Mac - but probably not too bad when I get sorted.

Digital Cameras Buyers' Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Experience a compact and convenient point-and-shoot camera – but with a truly brilliant extra: Besides being absolutely easy to handle, the new VG-170 provides a flash nearly twice as powerful as on a regular compact camera.

The Guide Number is approx. 8.8, in contrast to 4 to 5.6 with comparable cameras. Thanks to the long flash mode you can even light up faces and objects up to fully 15 meters away, as it automatically selects higher ISO sensitivity.
