The overall design of this camera is lovely, it's got a great shape to it, and doesn't embarrass you if you take it out. The LCD screen is large enough...

I've had this camera for about 9 months and can't fault it. One of the best things about this camera is the large display screen which lets you see the photo you've just taken really well. You can also zoom in again to see the photo in even greater detail. I've had a few digital cameras, and used...
