william, Southwold Just point and shoot

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very easy to use; much smaller and lighter than previous models; reasonable definition on modern HD TV screen,even though this model of video-cam is not HD. Pocketable for instant use and massive memory.
Bad points:
As with other models, screen not very clear when shooting in bright light, and Record/Standby jingles not loud enough in a noisy ambience, so sometimes I think it is recording when it's not and vice-versa!

Ron, Worcestershire Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Compact, light weight, Zeiss lens, wide angle, 25x zoom, excellent clear LCD image except as indicated below.
Bad points:
No view finder, LCD screen could be better in bright sunshine even on maximum bright setting. On line manual good but would be better if printed version supplied in lieu of supplied version.
