andy, Hitchin, UK Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Automatic stitching of sweep panoramas
Light weight
Compact size
In camera charging of battery
Bad points:
Unnecessary zoom lens and unnecessary noise reduction.
I would prefer a fixed focal length wide angle lens of higher quality, or a modest zoom (of x3 perhaps) that allows lens quality to be better.
I would prefer some image noise at higher ISO rather than the excessive smearing and plasticky look due to noise removal.
Uncontrollable zoom lens. It zooms so rapidly that the only repeatable settings are the two limits - max wide angle and max telephoto. It is impossible to adjust zoom with any degree of control between those limits. Design Suggestion: I would actually prefer jumps between a small number of preset focal lengths, controlled by two buttons - one press to jump up one step, one press to jump down one step - long press to jump to max wide or max telephoto.
