Nick, Alnwick

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Instructions are easy to follow. Pictures are good and the snapshot facility is an excellent facility(although see comment below).
Bad points:
A small hand may have difficult in grasping the camera and operating the Telephoto and Wide Angle lever and possibly when taking snapshots, reaching the snapshot button.

Michael, Falmouth Retired regular countryside walker.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Brilliantly convenient i.e. being able to switch effortlessly from video (super picture) to stills, which I find very adaquate definition.
Bad points:
Being use to view finders, i.e. pressed against the eye, I find at the moment(need practise) the stability particularly using even modest telephoto tricky.
