Most helpful reviews

Ian, Ipswich Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Small, feels robust, with good spec. Quick start-up and takes picture instantly, which is great for action shots. Variable rapid shoot is very useful too. Great camera.
Bad points:
Laquer came off front cover within a few uses, and went everywhere. Still looks ok, but logo now feels a bit sharp to the touch.
Touch screen function buttons close to edge of screen, so easy to accidentally press.
Lens close to corner too, so fingers sometimes cover the picture. Need to get used to the best holding position, I guess.

Paul, Guildford Point & shoot

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Easy use, great underwater photos, slim line profile, Looks great at the pool side and out in the evening (other waterproof cameras do look big,bulky and even childish). Nice Touch screen once you get used to it.
Fantastic HD video recording. Look at YouTube for videos of this camera, helped me pick it and I AM VERY HAPPY WITH IT
Bad points:
easy to get tip of finger in picture, worth getting second battery (small battery but it is a thin camera so that's only fair). Mono sound recording on movie. Picture quality is v.good even at 10 mega pixel (remember you only need 3-5 to print out a normal 6"X4" photo) I have seen better but NOT from a thin waterproof,drop proof camera that looks this sexy !!
