Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Easy to handle, looks good
Bad points:
Very poor explaination of use of the features in the manual, many more features than my old sony DSC-H1 which was simple, easy to use with very good quality.
Where can I get something that explains how to use it in more detail than the handbook that came with it

alison, Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Best camera ever! I wanted a camera that would give great results when taking pictures of my children. Having a toddler and a ner baby I needed a camera that wouldn't take blurred pictures when the boys move like previous digital cameras have done to my annoyance. This camera does exactly what I want it to giving clear, bright and non-blurry images. I am very impressed and would recommend to anyone.
