Tracey, Royston Just point and shoot

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Lightweight, good fun, bought the same one for my 19, 17 and 10 year old. The 10 year old has not really put it down since christmas. Not tried underwater yet but hopefully this wont let them down on holiday.
Bad points:
Didn't have a memory card supplied and not many bags designed to keep it all in. Also had to buy an adaptor to charge from the mains. Can't say anything bad about the item itself.
