robert, glasgow

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great picture quality; image stabilistaion gave me some astonishingly sharp pictures even when taken in a hurry; 28-200mm zoom range is very useful range for work purposes; very quick to use; have also achieved surprisingly good quality indoor shots with low light and flash off; good build quality; nice size; very good value at the price purchased.
Bad points:
wide/tele zoom is too fast and sensitive - hard to achieve correct framing of shot easily (two stage zoom in new R8 seems to address this point); zoom is also a bit noisy; buttons are a bit fiddly especially power switch; not the most positive of clicks on the menu navigator but OK; hand grip is too insignificant and not substantial enough to be of any use; battery door a bit flimsy but should be OK if you don't abuse it too much.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Can produce some really nice images and the zoom on the lens is great.
Bad points:
Not really a "point and shoot" camera, images seem to blur easily but images are great when you have time to steady the camera.

Alan, Crawley

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Solid state camera with great functions & a large picture display, very easy to use & excellent optical zoom...great value
Bad points:
The 'flash' is a bit tricky to use as it's very strong on close ups & can be some what blinding for the subjects, the picture quality is re-fractured by the camera but can be grainy when copied onto a pc, sometimes needs some adjustments.
