Consumer review by: Seajay (productreview.com.au)

Great for the price

 

Small, compact and relatively easy to use. Has a great 40 x optical zoom, time lapse capture, automatic and manual settings and the fact that it does not have an internal HDD means one can remove the flash card and put it in your reader without mucking...

40 x opticl zoom with anti shake.

Manual zoom is limited. Once you set it you have to go through menu again to change it
