Awesome little snapper for those times and places when a big or bulky camera will just take up too much room or get smashed into tiny little expensive pieces!

The best thing is the rugged construction and strong lens cover that slides into place when it turns off, it means that it really can live up to its tag as being weather resistant and strong. It has a good array of shooting modes including sports mode, landscape, portrait and many more. It also has a great autofocus, it can be a little slow but on the whole works a charm.

It does not have the 10+ megapixels that seem to be sought after in all cameras now but unless you are going to print your photos in A0 and plaster a wall with it then it will produce stunning shots that look as good as many more expensive and feature jammed cameras!

It has an optical zoom, this is important as digital zoom is as useful as a chocolate teapot without a tripod and awesome processor built in, not enough to take close ups of surfers from the beach or your neighbours but good enough to pick a face out of a group or at least cut out some rubbish from the shot.

Small enough to slide into a bag or pocket without poking out or getting caught on things, it is also tough enough to be dropped again and again from a skateboard at speed or in nightclubs.

The screen and buttons are nice and easy to use and as with most cameras these days very intuative to figure out how to use. Large enough to see in all light but also covered with a solid protector unlike any touch sensitive screens which often end up dead after being chewed by a puppy or bouncing on a sharp object.

A lovely little camera that fits in the gap between cheap compacts and overpriced SLRs. It will survive well and continue to take great photos, even transferring them is easy through the included software. The battery is a rechargable one that is quick to power up and lasts long enough for a good days outing or so.

Mine finally met its end when I had been surfing all day and whilst taking some shots of the beach did a faceplant and shoved the open lens front into the sand. It actually still took photos and worked in every wau other than the couple of grains of sand in the rotating zoom section would send it into a fit once in a while.

Lasted a good year or two though through thick and thin, I would defnitely reccomend this to anyone with an active lifestyle or a beginner not too interested in millions of features.
