    Ridz.sg July 2013
  • It is very easy to use…
  • Security through password is easy to set up…
  • Battery lasts well, manual focus / focus lock would have been handy - however this camera is all about getting pictures in extreme places where you probably don't have time to be too fussy…
    Anonymous (Tesco.com) - November 2014
  • Beyond that it is loaded with features, so much so it becomes difficult to use…
  • The video function is also very easy to use and, all in all, we couldn't have been happier with it…
  • The menus and interface are excellent with little need to refer to the manual…
  • The menu system is easy to navigate…
  • The menu to do this isn't accessible in the default auto mode (why not?)- you need to set the camera to manual mode first for some reason…
