hasan, W14 Keen amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The quality of the movie is very good
The ease of transferring the movie clips
The image stabilizer works quite well
The hard disk is big enough
Bad points:
I don't recommend taking pictures, the quality is disappointing for nowadays level of pixels.
The battry included does not last, all manu. do that so one had to buy the more expensive option.
The movie quality drops at low light
Some function are not well explained, I can't fighure how to get 35x zoom than the standard 25x.
I am not sure if that just my setting, but I found every time I paused recording it generate another clip. I know I can join them late in the software, but that for extra work I do not need

Ollie, Guildford Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It's compact, has tones of storage, fantastic image quality and the image stabiliser function works surprisingly well!
Bad points:
There aren't many downsides to this camera technically but I would say that the battery sticks out from the back of the camera a little too much, which is a shame because everywhere else the camera is so neat and compact.
