Richard, Great Malvern

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
I was surprised how good the picture quality was with 7mps. The camera easy to use, although
the controls are small. The manual is well layed out and clear. Transfer to a computer is easy,
even without the software supplied. Having the ability to see a picture just after it is taken is a
huge advantage over film based cameras.
Bad points:
The auto-focus system can make "suprising" decisions. This seems to
occur with short focal lengths and/or low light levels. I found the manual focusing
system very difficult to use. Camera movement still seems a problem even
when the display gives short exposure times 1/100 and below.
