Purchaser Experienced amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good optical zoom and macro- nice to have these without changing lenses
Bad points:
Markings wore off the dial showing macro , flash etc very quickly because painted and not engraved.
I find the slow synchro flash the only one that is satisfactory- the other settings overexpose.

Mark, Walton on Thames

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I like the compactness of it. It has one of the most powerful flashguns built-in that I have ever experienced in a digital compact.The 12x zoom is just brilliant. It handles like a beauty and I love the 3 inch screen. The video clip function works well. Again picture quality is excellent. One point to remember, if at times you find the picture is not clear or detailed, then 90% of the time it is 'user' error.
Bad points:
The lens cap does not fit very firmly on the lens, however, the lens cap attachment which is fixed to the camera prevents it falling off and getting lost. But this should not detract from using this camera. You cannot put the camera in your shirt pocket, but what the heck!

Purchaser Point & shoot

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use , the auto setting works in most situations , and is sometimes better than the dedicated settings.
Good size review screen .
I use it mainly for bird photographing and use the X1.7 telephoto lens .
Reasonably quick response when switched on and quick focusing .
Bad points:
Takes time and menu choices to go from telephoto to normal .
As a still camera ( as opposed to an SLR) Should a twig come between you and the subject you get good pictures of twigs with a blurred subject behind , the focusing square(s) help in this respect .
