Took some lovely holiday photos, a printed instruction manual would have been nice at this price but I presume it is on the included CD, without the manual I obviously missed some of the cameras finer points, but as a regular FUJI owner (my fourth FUJI camera) it is pretty easy to use, and the kids had no difficulty using it with no experience. Distance shots are high quality, photo stitching you must practise as they do not all match top and bottom and I was not over-impressed with the video that I did shoot, even viewed on a PC it did not impress me as being worthy of HD quality status. However if you compare this to the FUJI JX250 cameras that I previously bought my family it is a worthy replacement, similar price, if anything I prefer the square corners of the JX to the very rounded JV (too girlie for me) but you can't deny that you get a lot of camera in a very small package. I'm not keen on the laboured sound that the lens mechanism makes when the camera is turned on/off, but I have no duff photos except those caused by my own (amateur) ability. 4 out of 5 stars, only because I have not had time to review my photos in detail and maybe award a 4.5.
