I got this camera from Argos when the new model was bought out on special offer at half price for just £75! I have taken it on 2 snowboarding holidays and used it extensively since.
I have been astonished at how good that it is overall- the picture quality is great and it takes very good shots in general. I have blown up pictures on a 50 inch plasma screen and the 7.2 megapixel definition and detail is impressive.
The camera is very easy to use, there is a simple wheel with picture icons to designate the kind of picture settings that you want (e.g video, automatic, close up).
It has all the usual camera functions and settings as well as individual optimisation settings for particular conditions such as snow.
The video function is good although there is no sound recording-nonetheless for the money this added functionality is impressive and I have made various snowboarding videos which look good. again I have seen these on a large tv and video definition is impressive.
