Ian, Oldham Point & shoot

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use, picture quality of both stills and HD video is impressive. Battery life is also impressive and unlike some other cameras, replacement batteries are reletively inexpensive.

More modes than you would possibly need if you are anything less than an amatuer photographer.
Bad points:
Position of the flash - Can be obscured by a finger when pushing down the shutter button

Good points:
A pleasure to use. Once I had printed off the complete 110 sheets from the pdf manual I found the camera very easy to use and have taken some great shots over the last month
Bad points:
Didn't find any bad points, but had trouble finding the pdf manual as I have an old computer.
