Most helpful reviews

Simon, London

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
In the main a good camera. It's support of SDHC enables the use of large capacity memory cards (i.e. 4GB) but your card reader needs to support it too - SDHC cards won't work in a SD reader but SDHC readers can read SD.
Bad points:
This may just be a fault in my camera but when recording a movie and using the mechanical zoom, the zoom can be heard on the recording and is very loud. My previous Optio WP didn't have this problem.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Compact, fast to start, bright screen great images with a 2 Gig SD card in there I can take more than 500 shots at full res. Battery lasts for ages and charges quickly too. The beach is no longer out of bounds. I love it.
Bad points:
Its not a point and shoot camera as such which some might see as a disadvantage, almost half way between an SLR and a point and shoot which means once you know how to work it, it can do almost anything. But learning to use it will take a day of playing.
