Most helpful reviews

Ruth, Horsham Experienced amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Easy to get excellent pictures
I've got the blue one and it looks good!
Bad points:
Power supply failed, I couldn't work out what was wrong and missed Christmas pictures of my little boy - but in the end it was just the "figure of eight" power lead of which I have many in the house
The lens cover that automatically closes over the lens when the camera is off, seems a bit flimsy
Takes some time for the software to catch up when you change a setting e.g. switch from auto to manual

Gary, Surry Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The camera has a host of manual options and even the pre-set are pretty good. I have no problems using it, the controls are intuitive and well placed
Bad points:
The GPS drains the battery quite quickly and the use of yet another type of USB connection which requires a special lead
