Summary: Initially what I thought I wanted and what I thought I was buying was a point and shoot camera. Don't get me wrong this does that but it also does a lot more. I wont go into that here other people have already done that and better than what I could have. I would and will recommend this camera as a good buy.
Summary: I wanted a sensibly priced digital camera that would replace an old Sony DSC-F55E I've had for many years. I spent hours on the internet looking at reviews and comparisons before I settled on this. One reviewer stated that his Olympus VG-170 was often used in preference to his other (very expensive) camera. Olympus is a brand I trust, having used OM-10 and XA2 35mm film cameras long before digital photography became available.
Summary: Camera does everything that I wanted and more. It was delivered on time and represented excellent value for money. The camera is small enough to easily fit into pockets. The menu is easy to navigate and it produces excellent images.
