Anthony, Blackpool Happy snapper.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
While this camera conatins all the bells and whistles you could possibly want, the fully automatic function gives excellent results. The camera is small enough to fit into a pocket, and all edges are rounded making it a smooth fit in any container.
Bad points:
Like most modern small cameras, there is no optical viewfinder.

Confirmed purchaser Family of 4

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The camera is a perfect size to take out with you and you could easily pop it into your handbag or pocket. The menus are eay to navigate and there are many excellent features which are explained on the viewing screen when you highlight them. The camera takes pictures very rapidly after the button is pressed unlike our previous digital camera, this means we are getting excellent quality pictures from this camera.
