Antonis, Athens Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Εύκολος χειρισμός, σχετικά γρήγορη, τέλειο video (1080p), φωτογραφία πολύ καλή, καλύτερη όμως η βραδυνή λήψη (η ανώτερη του ανταγωνισμού και χωρίς φλας), πολλές δυνατότητες (πανόραμα, αποχρωματισμός, αποεστίαση κλπ), πολύ καλό zoom - κυρίως στο video. ΑΞΙΖΕΙ ΣΙΓΟΥΡΑ ΤΑ ΠΟΛΛΑ ΛΕΦΤΑ ΤΗΣ.
Bad points:
Υπάρχει ένα θέμα με τον φακό όπου η φωτογραφία στις άκρες παρουσιάζει παραμόρφωση. Δηλαδή στις άκρες στρετσάρεται!!! Οι οδηγίες χρήσης είτε στο pdf manual είτε on-camera είναι σαφώς ελειπής. Στην θέση video 1080p δυστυχώς δεν μπορείς να βγάλεις φωτό (dual rec). Οι φωτο γίνονται auto-rotate μόνο στην camera. Μια-δυο extra μπαταρίες είναι απαραίτητες. Θα προτιμούσα να έβγαζε ...και RAW φωτογραφίες.

David, Haywards Heath Keen amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Results Good
Good choice of photography options
Zoom ability
Stable shots at end of zoom
Bad points:
Seemed slow to process compared with my previous T50 (& I bought a "fast" process card)
Eats battery power
Sceen visibility in bright light
No GPS in Uk
Not really a bad point but its taking a long while to get used to (learn) the option choices - a video/utube instruction would have been useful

Odd, København Erfaren amatør

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
- Fremragende billedstabilisering
- Flot videokvalitet
- Hurtig opstart - kun ca. 2 sekunder!
- Fornuftig pris
- Gedigen udførelse - no plastic!
- Tydelig skærm - også i solskin
- Naturtro farver (i fotos)
- Kameraet er i lomme-format (men måske lidt tungt)
- Masser af programmer og muligheder
- Særligt program for "uskarp baggrund"
- Nemt at finde rundt i menuerne
Bad points:
- Lidt kedeligt blå/grå-stik i videobillederne
- Skifter man funktion med programvælgeren mens kameraet er tændt, kommer der et irriterende "bekræftelses"-billede op på skærmen, og som så først skal fjernes før skærmen er klar
- Når man vælger hvidbalance, er der for megen skrift, der skygger for kontrol af billedet
- Begrænsede muligheder for manuel indstilling
- Ingen ordentlig manual (heller ikke på nettet) - kun nødtørftig brugsvejledning

Grahame, Norwich Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
.Still getting to grips with the camera, but I'm not in any way disappointed with this camera. The image quality and zoom is fab. I'm very pleased with the purchase so far - need to try out the video soon.
Bad points:
One tiny niggle, and that's simply - the screen is hard to see on a bright sunny day or when you are wearing your sunglasses.

Ian, Hertford, UK Keen amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
produces good photos, well built, nice background de-focus mode, excellent optical zoom
Bad points:
Not enough manual focus points, would be nice to be able to use the navigation ring to rotate to any focus point not preset jumps. I never cease to put my finger on top of where the flash is. It would be nice to get an infolithium battery with it.
