Customer Review

on 24 November 2013
A handy camera to carry round, the 16Mp sensor allows high quality images if there is enough light. The battery life isn't as good as I would have hoped but seems to be better if the camera is more frequently used. The flash is powerful enough for most work. The macro function works well. It is advertised as having a spot meter but not of the type I am familiar with, what it does is to meter from the focusing region which can be large for area metering or small for spot metering. It supports focus and exposure lock with a two pressure release button. I have found that I can photograph backlit subjects by metering off grass and then recomposing the picture. The problem with that is that the focus also locks on the grass.

There is a shutter delay that makes it difficult to capture action but this is something that can be got used to.

As a light, easy and reliable way of recording trips etc I would recommend this camera as long as, especially if you are an experienced photographer, you are aware of its limitations.
