    This camera is certainly marketed as a budget-end camera yet has some very desirable facilities that makes it appealing to young and old alike.

    Firstly, it's not so stupidly small that an adults hands swamp it. Neither is it particularly bulky nor heavy. Feels nice and comfortable in my hands.

    The screen is large, bright and sharp. It doesn't have the touch-screen capabilities of more expensive cameras but frankly I never missed that here.

    Whilst 10 mega-pixels might be seen as over-kill for a snap-shot style camera it did produce some very sharp and details photos; its Achilles heel is that it doesn't perform brilliantly in low light but then I didn't expect it to. Manually setting the ISO rating down a tad (requiring longer exposures in low-light conditions) more-or-less eliminates the "noise" speckling if you leave the camera doing its own thing in low light.

    Face recognition was an unexpected surprise on a budget camera and worked very well. All my person centric photos were in focus.

    One default settings that was changed was the auto-focus: by default it continually keeps trying to auto-focus which can use battery power. I changed it so that you have to partially press the shutter to make it focus. Kids though, would probably appreciate the auto-focussing as all they need to do then is press the shutter.

    Kodak make a great deal about easy it is to upload to Facebook and the like but I never tried this. Printing to a printer (with or without a dock or Pictbridge) worked well though.

    In summary, this is brilliant bit of kit which does so much more than what the price would suggest. Recommended.

    Over the summer holidays I have given this camera to my eleven year old daughter to road test for me. We have been looking for an easy to use digital camera for her for some time and this seemed to fit the bill. We are thrilled with the result. In the space of an hour she had already progressed from taking standard photographs to being able to use the zoom properly and also taking film footage. The zoom function is particularly intuitive as instead of a button which you have to click repeatedly, it is activated by a small sliding handle on the button you use to take the actual photograph.

    The camera is light and compact with a good sized screen which allows you to see clearly exactly what you are doing. It is easy to upload the pictures onto a p.c. with the lead provided. It has withstood the rigours of a child using it for nearly three weeks now and has come to no harm and I highly recommend it to anyone thinking of getting it.

    Now here you have a techie item being reviewed by the world's greatest mechanical klutz. I am short-sighted, hamfisted and hopeless at reading manuals. So the fact that, within hours of getting this camera, I had successfully taken photos and uploaded them to my PC, plus set up the sharing software, strikes me as pretty impressive for the product.

    The camera has all the usual stuff - zoom, flash - it can take videos though I haven't yet asked it to, and if you download the software it'll share photos to places like Facebook with one click for you. It did take me a while to work out where all the buttons were, not so much because of any difficulty with the instructions as because I needed a magnifying glass to locate the buttons. Most people with less than perfect eyes would, but that's normal nowadays, alas.

    On a gloomy, misty day it took very acceptable photos, despite the fact that I'm not all that good with cameras that don't have a viewfinder - it's one of those that you don't hold tightly to your eye and I always find it hard to keep them still, but again that's normal these days. Setting up the software wasn't a problem, nor were the upload instructions. So far, I'm impressed. But you will need a memory card, of course - its internal memory will only stretch to 4 photos.

    What would make me give it 5 stars rather than 4? Why, if the manufacturer were generous enough to print out the flaming manual, rather than expecting you to look it up online or print out the 60-odd pages yourself. As usual, there's only the basics provided in print form, which means it'll be a long time before I get around to using any fancy stuff. I do hate this modern meanness about manuals.

    I was looking for a shirt-pocket sized camera. I'd read all the reviews and was thinking about shelling out £100 plus. Then I saw this camera and thought I'd take a punt. After all, at the price it was worth a gamble.

    I'm delighted that I did. It takes first-class photos that are just perfect for my needs. I NEVER print pictures (it's far too expensive) but look at them on-screen. Because of this I only need a 1 megapixel camera. This camera lets you choose anywhere from 2 megapixel to 10 megapixel and at different aspect ratios. I currently use 3 megapixel as a happy medium and it allows me to crop if I want/need to.

    Pictures of 2 megapixel are usually less than 2 Mbyte so I can get 500 + pics on a 1 Gbyte SD card.

    The menus are clear and the programs available cover the point-and-shoot needs of most amateurs.

    All in all, it's a great little camera at a great price.
