"excellent little camera"

I bought this camera for under £80 including free rechargable batteries + charger.For that price i think this camera is a real bargain.It is simple to use and has all the features you would usually find on a far more expensive camera + 3 mega pixels to boot.Great pics inside + out.
The downside for me is the software.Almost every time i try to access the e-manual through acrobat 4 it restarts windows for some reason.[If anyone knows why can they let me know please].
I am also having difficulty editing and printing my photographs using the software.It could just be me as i am not the best person in the world at understanding these things,but on the whole this is a good camera and looks pretty good aswell.

    I got everything in the first sentence - under £80. The camera is nice to use, if somewhat plasticky, but at the £130.- that I was quoted, it does not represent vfm.
