Most helpful reviews

Graham, Just point and shoot

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Light weight and works well in daylight so long as you don't use the zoom while filming.
Mine was heavily discounted (around 50 quid) but it would be poor value at full price.
Bad points:
Touch-screen difficult to use, particularly while filming, as every time you touch the screen the camera moves. Takes a while to get used to the funtions and settings.

Nichola, Reading Just point and shoot

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good quality videos, and very easy to use. Battery life is great too, and you can buy an 8Gb memory card for under a tenner, which give you over 80 minutes of video.
Bad points:
Starting and Stopping the recording can cause a jolt which is slightly annoying.

Lightweight and unobtrusive, has been mistaken for a mobile phone.
