JIM, KENT OLDER GENTLEMAN

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The camera is good value for money with all the features it has and having a recharchable battery..
Bad points:
Rather complicated to work out how to set up.The start up handbook supplied is not comprehensive enough for initial set up.I feel that one should have enough basic instructions with the camera without having to refer to the download manual.Not as easy to use as my previous Casio Exlim camera.I prefered the on screen menu of that camera.

Davie, Edinburgh

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The function buttons along the bottom and up the right side - they look daunting to everyone who's seen the camera but they're surprisingly easy to use. They also save faffing about with a 5 directional doodah which is half the size of your thumb.

The "effects" which can be used to frame a particular shot - certainly a show-stopper at a family function.
Bad points:
The function buttons - sometimes they don't preview properly. I'm sure it can't be my big clumsy thumbs!
