So it?s not a feature-all bells and whistles snapper. But be comforted that it is still better than what we could get in 1997! And the best camera doesn?t necessarily take the best picture...

Slim, easy to use design and fast focus
4x zoom with good wide angle coverage
Quick, responsive smile shutter
Dedicated moviestills switch
Noisy images and slightly dark tones
No optical image stabilisation
Poor quality at high ISO settings
LCD screen narrow view angle
Limited number of scene modes
