Build quality

Plastic but still fairly robust.


Conclusion

Really great camera pocket camera!
It's small and takes great images.
I don't like the focus that only have 3 settings and it fairly easy to get this wrong.
The shutter speed is automatic and you only have a +1.5 exposure
You manually choose the ISO between 25-1600 and this can also be used as a exposure comp.
But this is however a point and click camera so it's meant to be simple.

Thumbs up:
Image quality
Easy to use
Small size

Thumbs down:
Only 3 focus settings
Little shutter control
Plasticky
