10 March 2007
  • Excerpt: Lucky for me I recived this camera for free when my techno-phobe mother decided is was all too complex for her. Actually mastering the basic cameria functions is relatively striaght forward after a quick flick through the manual.
  • Pros: Sleek design and multiple functions, including video and sound recording .
  • Cons: Delayed reaction of several seconds prevents candid shots .
