Confirmed purchaser Experienced amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Overall simplicity just set to auto for general picture taking. It also has the facilities for setting flash and some scene specific modes. Picture quality good for the class of camera. Optical zoom adequate, if you want more buy an SLR. Bought for simplicity of use, quick snaps with good results. It meets my requirements.
Bad points:
Like most small digital cameras it can be fiddly to change settings especially if you have big hands - I have. Have not yet noticed whether the battery charge fades quickly when not used, as some earlier models do, mainly because I haven't stopped using it long enough!

Soph, Cleveland Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Amazing camera that produces amazing photos. Theres loads of different settings to choose for different light conditions ie twilight, snow. With the 4x optical zoom the quality of close up photos are really really good. Its unbelievably easy to use and understand. To be honest you probably wouldnt even need the instruction manual. When changing any settings its pretty self explanatory what to do. I would definitely recommend this camera to anyone of any photgraphic ability

Good points:
When it gets a good focus the picture quality is great

Getting the correct focus in any other than perfest light conditions is difficult.
Video quality is better on my 6 year old 5 mp fuji.
