Confirmed purchaser

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The camera was purchased for someone with sight difficulties and it has proved to be exactly what was required. She is again able to enjoy taking photos with total ease and confidence. It has restored her ability to record her memories without the help of others. Thank you.


Bad points:
So far none have been found. One point I would make about the purchase is that it was not made clear that the pack had no case and no memory card. Full details of what was actually in the pakage would have been helpful.
