Edward, Trowbridge Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Having used SLR cameras since the 1960s, I have found this camera one of the easiest to use due to it's ergonomic shape and weight balance. As cameras got smaller and more powerful I had progressed to smaller cameras, but having had two strokes I returned to a larger camera with a good grip and an anti-shake option, or in this case the Super Steady Shot option.

No reliance on poorly lit creens to become invisible in sunlight as this camera relies on the view finder for aiming and focus, making great savings on battery life.
Bad points:
None that I have found, not even minor dislikes on the build or any features.
