"Small, light weight and simple to use camera"

If you dont know a lot about digital cameras and dont want to know then this is probably the camera for you. It really is a point and click camera.

It takes great snaps without the need for any configuration or adjustment and you have to really try to get a blury shot! I have even managed to take quite a few good photos whilst driving along and pointing it through the windscreen of the car.

Its simplicity and limited features does come at a cost however and the main problem (infact, my only problem) with it is that it is difficult to get a good night shot. The only way to get a decent photo at night when the object is under lights is to take at least 40 shots and delete 35 of them.

The software that comes with it is not worth installing though - you are better off with the basic Windows XP photo programs or Google's Picasa application.

I think it is good value for money and it has certainly served me well in all of my travels.
