Confirmed purchaser Keen amateur photographer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Lots of room for creative control, large screen, very small shutter lag, impressive video quality
Bad points:
Battery doesn't last long, overexposes a bit, shutter takes a bit of getting used to, face-recognitions seems a bit of a nonsense really

Nancy, London Experienced amateur

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Compact. Easy to use.Large viewing screen.
Bad points:
Be careful with the trigger. It will fall out before you realise it. Mine fell out and I haven't been able to get it replaced. The picture quality for the megapixel isn't that great. I find my older ones
