"brilliant pics easily, i didnt even hav 2 open the manual!"

I loved this camera so much myself that i went and got one for my mum!
I got the camera just before i went travelling and didnt have time to open the instruction book but i didnt need to because it was so easy to use and the pictures look fantastic.
Its small enough to fit in your pocket, good enough to print the pictures for your wall and sturdy enough that it survived all the knocks of a couple of years on the road.....it even kept going after being dropped 20m down a glacier!
This is a great little camera with all the options you'd hope for on a compact digital, portrait, landscape, nightmode, macro, video, and some manual settings. I'll definitely by buying another one once mines reached its last legs but its still going strong at the moment after a couple of years of very heavy use.
Canon are a more expensive make of camera but i think its worth it, you get what you pay for in photography and some of the moments you want to capture you may never see again so do you really want to chance a cheap shoddy make....i wont be!
In my opinion the camera is the perfect compact digital.
