darren, Eastleigh, Hampshire

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
picture quality is excellent, battery great, but worth carrying a spare, just in case!
recommend a 16GB (4hrs recording time) or more memory card, this will ensure no issues, although if you have a portable hard disk, you can transfer the files easily to make room.
Bad points:
compatibility with Apple mac caused some issues, however easily resolvable with some additional software downloads.

george, lyon france Just point and shoot

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
large choice of image sizes for stills and movie, 2 speed zoom for fast or slow zoom in-out when filming reduces shaky movies. It is a good still camera too with all the usual image functions. very practical shortcut function on selection button avoids the need to scroll down the menu for frequently used settings.Movie editing function allows to easily optimize memory space available.
Bad points:
wind noise; the reduction function doesn't seem to have much effect. I haven't tried the mic input.
I need to be further from the object than i was used to with a compact digital camera. This is a problem when shooting large objects, builings, or inside a room. this is why I ordered an additional wide angle converter which adds a third to the price.

stu, Louth likes good looking gadgets

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Well I was looking for a digital video camera and a digital camera as we were going on holiday but when I saw this I was hooked not only does it look one of the best things you can buy you can keep it in your pocket so easy to use as there are only a few buttons and you can take photos even when your recording your movie, it's brill.
Bad points:
Not too many bad points but I would of liked it to have some kind of pause button when your recording as you have to stop it every time and you end up with loads of little clips on your memory card, but saying that you can clip them altogether, also accessories, I have been after another docking station for this model as I would like one with my tv and one with my mac, and I have not been able to buy a stand alone docking station looks like the only way you can buy another is to buy another camera.

Mark, Farnborough

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Unbelievable light. Fit into your hand perfectly - very comfortable grip. Amazing image quality. AVCHD on SD means easy transfer to PC (playable on a Blu-Ray player also). Plugs right into an HD TV via HDMI.
Bad points:
No function to fade in/out whilst recording. Still photo quality only reasonable (buy a sperate digital stills camera!).
