"At the push of a button"

The title simply speaks for the camera.
This camera is for all age groups, males, females, or in-betweens. It is simple, easy and cost effective one could not wish for a better camera!

However if your a lover of gadgets and functionability as I am then I would also push the sale of this baby. It has 5 different settings, auto focus which will follow your eye to see what you are looking at then focus on that object. Sound bizzare? well it is one little funky camera and the eye thing does actually work, extremely well!

I have taken this camera out in all weathers, rain, wind, snow and hail and it has still survived, no scratches, no bumps and still in the same perfect condition as when I first brought it.

My partner loves this camera, he too is a lover of gadgets. The cameras in-depth modes enable hours of fun.

You can buy numourous extras such as lense's, filter's, bags, etc. I would however recommend a convertor rather than a seperate lense mainly because of the space saving in your camera bag.

If you buy a lense to go with this camera, I would recommend an AF lense because it works better with the camera and synchronises with the body and modes.

All in all it is cheap, smart, classy, a gadgeteers dream and a tough little baby which will last a lifetime.

A camera is not just a camera anymore it is a window of oppourtunity to view the world in a different light.
