Philip, Point & shoot

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use touch screen, great picture quality. Like the slide cover as it keeps the lens protected
Bad points:
Bit annoying that it only takes sony memory stick instead of normal SD, but the camera does connect easily to the computer using the USB lead supplied.

Confirmed purchaser Point & shoot

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The various features and the general ease of use.
Bad points:
Only 2:

1. Cannot view LCD screen in bright sunlight, and without a direct viewfinder that's a real problem.

2. Haven't found a way of viewing the pictures that I've taken without all of the surrounding icons blocking the view.

Confirmed purchaser Point & shoot

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It is a neat, small, light camera that works for the straightforward "point and press" person giving exceptionally clear images and an impressive depth of field. With a suitable card it has good memory capacity and the transfer to computer for storage is quick and easy.
Bad points:
Would be nice if it came with its own case to protect the menu and review screen.

Great images at your fingertips

A colourful, detail-packed LCD screen helps you frame every shot with more confidence. The wide, high-contrast touchscreen lets you see exactly what you’re shooting – even in bright light when you’re outdoors. The touchscreen also simplifies quick adjustment of shooting settings.
