Most helpful reviews

donna, Cambridge Point & shoot

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use, great features on it. I especially like the paint effect where it picks out the red and the rest is black and white.
Bad points:
Screen really difficult to see in bright sunlight. This was a birthday present in May, not really used until last 10 days when on holiday, door to cover where the charger goes broke half way through the holiday, it was very flimsy to start with, this could definitely do with a lot of improving. Camera still worked ok. Phone had only been charged a maximum of 4 times before this happened.

peter, Keen amateur

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Small, good quality, point & shoot, pocket camera
Bad points:
The interface has been so thoroughly de-technicalised, that it’s difficult/impossible to do anything technical with it. If you can find how to do anything technical its 3 layers deep in the menus. By the time you have it set the moment has passed. Try some macro photography -I dare you! A picture of a standing moth... Check out the interface on a Sony Ericsson K800i.
