Rob, Doncaster Keen amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Relatively compact when compared to SLR cameras.
Great picture quality.
Decent zoom from standard lens.
LCD screen flips up for easy selfie taking.
Good value for money.
Bad points:
The LCD screen hasn't the best definition so can be hard to judge picture quality from that before taking pictures.
The lens cover could be a bit more robust, clips onto the front of the lens with what seems like a puny amount of force, always have to check its actually attached.
Not really straight forward to use different modes etc. Never had to really read the instructions with previous cameras, but this one needs a browse of the manual.

Elizabeth, Manchester Experienced amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
If you can get the focus and the object right, the picture quality is fantastic! Videos are particularly good. I couldn't be more pleased with some of them. The reversible screen is helpful and there are many in-built camera settings that are easy to use.
Bad points:
It can be difficult to get the camera to focus where you want it to, but it always works out in time. Although, this has once or twice cost me a photo opportunity.

Shoot and share with NFC and Wi-Fi
