Sylvia, Glasgow

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I have bought this camera for two separate people and i think for the neatness of size and the ease of use it is ideal for a day to day camera. It is fairly intuitive and certainly small enough to put in a handbag or pocket just in case there is something worth capturing!
Bad points:
Limited zoom but for the price of it i don't think you can expect that much more.

Mollie, Edinburgh I like photography

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
It was very easy to use and it is a very nice colour! It had an editing system which was great and it had a number of settings including macro mode which is useful. It takes great pictures and the zoom is great. It can also take films which is good.
Bad points:
Overall it was a very good camera but there wasn't any playback volume for the videos which was a shame. It says in the instruction manual that there was audio so I tried to fix it but it still didn't work.
