Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
picture quality was absolutely poor. sometimes it was over exposed, sometimes under exposed. the picture quality when using the zoom was horrendous. i completely regret buying this camera. wish i went for the canon ixus100is. it may not have a wide angle lens or 5x opitcal zoom but the picture quality is very very good.

Bart, Zwaag

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
A very solid build quality
large number of preset shooting options
Bad points:
Is 12 megapixels perhaps a bit to much?
the large screen tends to get scratches (but that is easily fixed with a cover for your camera)

Alfred, Maldon. Essex

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Looked long and hard before settling on my Panasonic Digital Camera DMC-FX40. Which has many features that I look forward to using more and more, for the limited use so far has revealed excellent results following the very useful Operating Instructions.
Very satisfied with my purchase.
Bad points:
None so far except I wish I had purchased this camera before my cruise to the Baltic Capital earlier in the year.
