Confirmed purchaser keen bumbling amateur cameraman

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Had to make up a mark on 2 points as not yet fully tested.
bought this for my wife who is not technically minded and is delighted with it.
telephoto system was so simple that , being used to more complex systems, i found it difficult to use initially, just could not believe how simple it was to use without fiddling about and taking your eyes off the subject.
I use a SLR reflex myself but for a camera which is easily portable by anyone and instantaneously easy to use this one seems to be unbeatable.
