Brenda, Colchester Point & shoot

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use once you get to know it. Pics turn out pretty good. Great colour and neat enough to fit in my handbag.
Bad points:
No viewfinder so outside specially in sunlight it is difficult to know what picture you have taken.
Otherwise very good value for money.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Bought this for my daughter's 16th birthday. I think this has proved to be easy to use and understand without having to read instructions constantly. My daughter is extemely pleased and has found the software provided helped to upload her images to her facebook with ease. One fact that swayed me to this camera was that it is rechargable, I am always replacing batteries in mine!

Mark, London Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
For a very compact camera, this is excellent, it's tiny but easy to get good pics out of, once you have got used to using it,which isn't long, it's easy to get a good pic first time.Lithium battery is superb and lasts for ages, even when using the flash and charges quickly as well.The first pics I put on facebook, I had people asking what camera I had used they were so impressed.
Bad points:
For a budget micro camera - None.
