Andrew, West Yorkshire Just point and shoot

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
A super camcorder, easy to use & great image quality. Just come back from Cyprus for 11 days & used it every day. The zoom is excellent. Just have to be careful when stopping filming to make sure it has paused otherwise it carries on even after closing the viewfinder. Otherwise an excellent buy.

Antony, Whitby Experienced amateur

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use. A decent product for the price.
Bad points:
Battery life not so good. The price of extra batteries is extortionate. I would advise against this product on that basis alone.
