Stewart, Nottingham

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I never thought it would be possible to purchase a camera of this quality at this price. For the average photographer this camera has everything you would ever need and the picture quality is great. The build quality is also excellent. This unit has replaced my old Olympus mju400 and I have no regrets on the purchase. Great camera.
Bad points:
Can't really think of any at this price.

G, Runcorn Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Excellent easy to use and portable to carry around. Compares really well with the family's other 5 digital compact camera's.
Bad points:
Only minor point is face detection is not quite as good as Canon Ixus but I admit to being both picky and harsh in this regard.
