Mind-boggling complexity

plt "PT", Amazon
31 July 2005
  • Summary: I've little doubt that this gadget is a technological marvel. But for me, the complexity makes it unusable, and the instruction manual adds to the difficulty. Once again, I'm borrowing my daughter's cheap & cheerful bottom-of-the-range Fuji FinePix. Can't beat it. The Ixus is now in a cupboard and I suspect it will collect dust there.
