Toni, Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Lovely hard disc with loads of space and easy to download. Battery life also excellent. Have purchased a second battery which gives one confidence when away from home and not always able to recharge.
Bad points:
Have marked ease of use down because I find switching on and off a bit fiddly. The other model I looked at which switched off when closing the vdu was very good but that had an inferior vdu display in bright sunlight.

Image quality - have just done a video of my granddaughter's wedding which was in bright sunlight, some pictures seem a bit hazy. The pictures which I took on my old Panasonic were a little clearer.
