Brian, Buxton, Derbyshire Point & shoot

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Compact, strong
Bad points:
Having to use AA batteries, they don't last long and rechargeable ones are even worse. so its quite expensive buying batteries. Would be better it there was an internal battery as in a mobile phone, just plug in and charge it up.
