Richard, Chelmsford Other

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Only had the camera two weeks. First impressions are good. Like the size and feel of the camera and the format of the menu. Especially like the E.Zoom feature the ease of choosing the shooting mode. First pictures seem good but need to try more situations. So far very pleased
Bad points:
Could not upload pictures to my PC. Bought card reader to solve the problem. Connects to other PCs and the television so must be my PC.
