The shop i bought this in reccomended this camera and said i wouldnt be dissappointed, they were not wrong.
This camera is a nice small slim, light weight attractive camera made of metal with many functions avaliable to use, this includes a camera and a video camera(which alo includes recording of sounds), you can do close ups with the camera or far away snaps and they come out perfectly.
This camera has many settings on it so you can change from party mode to sun mode which is ideal for all the settings you take the photos in.
This is a 6.0 mega pixel camera.
It also has a self timer which is very useful when you dont have someone to take a snap of you or something else.
The camera can be connected to your computer to download your pictures on to or you can connect it to your tv to do play backs.When shooting a photo without the flash it doesnt do a fantastic job plus the settings are a bit hard to get your head around.
All in all i wouldnt swap this camera for anything else as its great.
For a use anywhere camera, this is ideal, its solid, compact with a host of features that allows the novice to produce quality photos in all situations.
The first thing I noticed when I opened the box was its modern styling, and how it's so slim that it discreetly fits into a breast pocket.
Start up time is very fast although you have to be wary of the zoom lens that pops out on switch on. The lcd screen is massive allowing you to compose your photo much better than the usual small screens, however it can be difficult to see in some light, a viewfinder would be an advantage.
The special mode switch has some useful settings including night, museum, portrait, landscape, sport, snow and close up as well as automatic. Flash mode is easily set to auto, forced, background, red eye or supressed.
Personally I prefer the rechargable li-on battery to the AA's and the charge life of this camera's battery is perfectly adequate, although it may be wise to purchase a second for holiday times away from a charging point.
To sum up, I found this camera to be ideal for my everyday uses and at an affordable price. I'm still finding different settings to play with. Highly recommended
