This is my first digital camera and I've had it for a couple of months now. I'm really happy with the quality of the pictures and of how easy it is to use.

It is a lovely, compact camera with menus that are easy to navigate.
The instruction manual is detailed but easy to understand and not bogged down with lots of technical terms.

It came with a usb lead to connect to the computer and also a lead which we can connect straight to the tv and also a small memory card. Unfortunately it didn't come with a case but I have bought one separately.

I would recommend this camera for anyone thinking of making the first move into the digital world. I am still amazed at the quality of the pictures in comparison to our old APS camera.
