chris, bristol Just point and shoot

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
so much better than a standard video tape recorder. So easy to use and really suprised at the good quality images. Get a large sd card as the 16gb one I got records just over an hour.
Bad points:
have not come across any apart from a steady hand required when on zoom

Tina, Worthing Just point and shoot

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Small, easy to tuck in your pocket, great for videoing the family when out and about. Really easy to transfer to PC and watch on TV.
Bad points:
Only one which really is the same for all cameras - on a really sunny day it is difficult to see the image on the screen and no viewfinder back up.

Small, lightweight, excellent image quality. Few bad points - but bargain for the money.
