Anthony, Oldham Professional photographer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
good little camera well made, bit heavy compared to similar products but i guess thats due to the AA bateries which this camera uses and i like that the batteries are inexpensive to buy compared to camera specific batteries and i have found the batteries last more than long enough for my use... I do like the optical viewfinder too its bright and clear ! the monitor screen is small again compared to other cameras but i don't mind it is clear and bright even in sunlight ! and has a very good re-fresh rate ie the picture on the monitor does jitter tom much like some other camera's i've used... picture quality i think is very good ... flash pictures are well exposed.. the AF illuminator is great at assisting the camera's auto-focus system in the dark or dim lighting conditions... all in all a great little camera.....
Bad points:
Auto- Focus can be a little slow to lock- on your subject in the dark... but other-wise none.....
