John, Bedford Keen amateur

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
Looks good and has a large viewing screen.
Bad points:
I bought this camera as an upgrade to my Pentax WP 5mp with which I had taken over 30,000 great photo's. Unfortunately, the image quality of the WS80 is so bad that I've gone back to my old WP.

Bottom line is that it makes no difference how good the other aspects of the camera are if the images it produces are poor then the camera is of little use to me.

Gabrielle, London Point & shoot

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Perfect gift for my 8 yr old son. He uses loads of the functions without ever having looked at the manual. Robust. I can't really judge image quality at a fine level - totally fit for son's purpose. A lot of fun.
