"EX-FH20, Molto Bene!"

I got this camera for Christmas, and i have to say that it's the best present i've ever had!

I'm an amateur photographer, and i needed an upgrade as my old camera was getting out dated and slow. So i looked around and i found the EX-FH20, it sort of looked like my old one, but i read the specifications and it was far more advanced. I did look around for more cameras with the same sort of qualities as this one, but they were all over £1000.

I have taken a few pictures with this camera, and my favourite is the slow motion shooting. I got a candle and filmed the flame, and i watched it back, and it looked beautiful. The quality was excellent.

Taking pictures is so easy, just click a button and you're there! Unlike most other digital cameras, where you take a picture and 5 seconds later it takes something!

Overall i think this is a fantastic little camera, it's a professional's dream, for amateur camera prices. It's a must buy for any amateur photographer, and any professional too!
