Summary: I own a full sized DSLR with all the accessories but despite my love of photography, there are times when a big camera is bulky and more of a hassle than help. Other times safety or security is a concern so having a small, inexpensive camera handy is preferred. This fits the bill exactly!
Summary: This was bought as a second camera to back up a Nikon compact, and it is very good value for money. The camera is easy to use, takes good photos,and has a very extensive range of functions and features, it even includes manual settings if you want to control some of the functions yourself.
Summary: only had this camera a few days so far - very glad i didn't heed the only other (2-star) review currently on this site! really excellent camera for this price - great results so far. very easy to use. i dunno why GE are no longer really selling cameras in the UK any more! that is the only down-side.
