mike, London Experienced amateur

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
When you work out what it can do, you can do a lot!
Panorama is good.... but not that good when you come down to it.
Bad points:
Panorama Tends to mess up horison lines like hills.
if you're going to have an online/cd manual, why not give us an interactive picture of what's being talked about in the instructions so that it means something more. Also, please get an English person to check your documents BEFORE you send them to us. Still full of errors.
Lanyard is JUST the right length to ensure that everytime you put the camera in your pocket having turned it off, it hits the picture view button and turns it on again. REALLY FRUSTRATING.

Rosalind, Dingwall Point & shoot

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
compact with good Zoom
Bad points:
Very difficult to compose shot through LCD screen as it reflects ones own image in bright light and impossible at times to see what you are shooting.

jason, London Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I really do like this camera. All the automatic modes work well. The panoramic sweep mode is amazing. Very good low light photos without a flash even when the subject is not still. Back ground defocus mode is fun. Inteligent mode and manual mode are very good. Deals with strong back light well too. It is small and light and looks good. I have not tried the 3d modes.
Bad points:
There doesn't appear to be a way of turning the macro on perminantly. Manual functions seem limited, i.e. not fully manual like an SLR. Could use a few more crazy art modes as it lacks tilt shift, retro, fish eye could be fun to use on holiday.

Paresh, Fife Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Amazing lens therefore amazing images. Was attracted to the 3D function to use on my Sony 3D T.V. but as yet have not found the images 3D-effective - maybe user error. The mini-HDMI connection sends images through to the T.V. quicker than via the USB connection - saves on battery life. Dual memory slot is great - I can use existing Micro SD card + adaptor. Can zoom in/during High Def movie. On-board thumb-size and calendar mode to view images is very useful; the supplied SONY software CD also allows same searching on a PC. Screen res is great. On-Screen Menu and trouble shoot functions are very handy for short cuts.
Bad points:
Good metal body but needs more rubberised grip points. The power button is in the way when holding the camera, the stereo mics are also in the way when taking movies - suggest using a mini-tripod whenever possible.
