"Brilliant Camera for the Amateur or Budding Professional"

I bought the Black Version of this camera as a gift for the Girlfriend at Christmas, it is, without doubt, a splendid Camera, which allows you to take a wide array of photographs, with awesome quality and clarity.

For less than £100 i bought this camera (£69.99), a 16gb Memory Stick, (£25 off ebay) and a Sony camera case and screen protector (£4.99 off Ebay)

Pretty much everything an amateur photographer could ask for, and it didn't cost that much!

It's the ideal camera to get anyone who is interested in photography - or is a bit vain!

I can't really fault it except on the basis that a lot of the newer, more expensive models are able to record video in HD, but for me that's sma tatties- if you want to get into photography or just want a high quality camera to take your Holiday Snaps on - then this is the camera for you
