The DMC-FX3EG-S is one of the best digital cameras I have ever owned, with 3x optical and 12x digital zoom this camera also provides excelent picture quality to compliment is wide range of settings. Easily accessable from the small dial at the back of the camera. With its 2.5 inch LCD screen at high resolution you can see your photos clearly and easily. From the moment I picked this up it was easy to use and fitted greatly into my hand although I feel it might be a little to small to those with bigger hands. Overall a good buy.
