23 Reasons Against

Poor Expert Reviews

The average expert rating of this camera is 58% based on sixteen expert reviews from sites including PhotographyBlog.com, Ephotozine, Techradar and PC Mag. This means that experts really don't rate this compact camera camera very highly.

If you would prefer a camera with a bigger optical zoom then you might want to look at the Sony DSC-RX100 (£233.99) (3.6x and higher rated), the Kodak Pixpro FZ41 (4x and higher rated), or the Polaroid IS426 (£39.00) (4x and higher rated).
