Good for the price!
8 months ago

I've had 3 recent 'superzoom' GPS compact cameras and this was the cheapest by some considerable margin. It was purchased to replace an excellent Sony HX9v, that was lost in a car park on a day trip but never handed in...

The specification appeared similar and it good decent reviews, so for the much lower price I bought it. It was, like the HX9v, a little too bulky to be pocketable but ok. It was a decent camera to use and it pictures/video were ok to, but not the same quality I'd had from previous Canon products.

Overall it was ok & if you need a superzoom GPS compact on a budget this will fill the bill. But there are better products out there for just a little more money and I would stretch myself.
