Our Verdict:
A good value for money and multi award winning 319g camera, with one of the highest image qualities on the market and a very good spec. It supports Wi-Fi and Full HD video, does not have an image stabiliser and has a touchscreen. Customers report that this camera is able to produce good images, compact but it has a bad autofocus.
