I love the size, shape, ease of use and general functions of the camera.

I feel the only bad thing about the camera is the time it takes to get used to the touch screen menu. It isn't too much of a problem but often I found myself scrolling through pages of icons to find what I wanted and found it a bit cryptic.

Its so easy to use , lightweight, no tapes to carry around, long battery life, big hard drive. It was fabulous taking it on a recent holiday - much better than my old one, and the results are wonderful. Don't hesitate - go and buy one, you certainly...

Bad points - you must be joking.
