Score 3.0/10
Good points:
small and compact
Bad points:
I am old and wanted a simple camera, this is FAR to complicated. When I bought it the young man said it was simple and there was a booklet that explained how to use the camera ... there is no booklet , and it is NOT simplle for old folks like me!

christopher , Reading Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I previously owned a normal "old style" camera that used film and the only experience I had using digital camera technology was via my mobile phone.
I was bought the digital camera by my sister as a Christmas Present as I needed a knew camera and wanted to use it to take photos for my ebay business (which involves buying and selling computer games and consoles...including Sony Playstation games...particularly PS1 games, some of which are rare and are worth a surprising amount of money! In fact I have my own computer console and video game collection which includes 2x Sony Playstations (an original Playstation and a PS1 which I take to friends houses with a copy of Time Crisis and the lightgun, Anna Kournikovas Smash Tennis, Crash Team Racing, Bust a Move and many others for an awesome evening of multiplayer fun which everyone loves including boys AND girls!) 50 plus PS1 games, PS3 and 30 plus games for that too!) and connecting up to my telescope to take photos of planets, stars, galaxies and UFO's.

In terms of its ease of use I found it surprisingly easy to use, despite the MASSIVE amount of functions, and soon began snapping pictures left and right!!!!

The camera is lightweught, compact and looks COOL! The battery seems to last for ages, which surprised me as everything that relies on charging seems to run out after 1-2hrs these days...I won't mention any specific devices (IPOD, IPAD, IPHONE).

The picture quality is wicked, so much so that I took a photo of the moon and caught a UFO in the photo and using Windows IImage viewer was able to zoom in so much that I can make out the lights on the underside of the craft!

In short.....I love it!!
Bad points:
None that I can think of......although a carry case packaged with the Camera would have been REALLY REALLY REALLY helpful as I like to take the camera with me wherever I go just in case I see any UFO's in the sky and I don't want to take the camera out and about without a safe and secure carry case.

Robert, Lancashire Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The image quality is astounding, both for still image and video. We have had so much fun with it, highly recommended. The built-in help function is also very useful as a reminder for the vast range of functions.
Bad points:
The thumbwheel shortcut button is a little awkward to use, it's easier to use the standard menu button instead.
