  • Really good pictures and ease of use…
  • Even my daughter has been able to use and she is not the steadiest person! So happy…
  • It works brilliantly in full auto and when you have a little more experience and are a little more adventurous the advanced settings are excellent…

  • The picture quality is great and there are settings for every occasion…
  • It's easy to use, fairly compact…
  • It takes great shots and is a handy size…
    Marie (Amazon.co.uk) - January 2013
  • This is a very easy to use camera and has plenty of features for the price…
  • The only problem is when light starts to fade they go blurry, so you need to use the flash so it doesn't blur…
  • Firstly this camera is excellent for beginners ( like me! ) to cut their teeth on, its very easy to use and the controls are well placed, navigating through the menus is straight forward enough…
