It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 3" screen cameras currently available including the Sony SLT-A35Y + DT 18-55mm + DT 55-200mm, the Samsung 72, or the Olympus OM-D E-M5 (£549.00) which has better reviews.

Lens System

Fairly Big Optical Zoom

At 24 times zoom factor, the Rollei 240 HD has a quite big optical zoom compared to most of the other medium megapixel digital cameras that came out around the same time as this camera.

We compared all the other 24x optical zoom digital cameras to this digital camera and we think the SZ-14 (£104.99), and the Stylus SZ-15 both from Olympus which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this digital camera optical zoom is too small for you then you might want to look at the Kodak Pixpro AZ251 (£80.00) (25x), or the Nikon 320 (26x) which is also higher rated.
