I'm very surprised by your ratings. You are basically saying that there are significant weaknesses in this product, and that there are better cameras out there.





This is a Trusted Review, and your camera reviewers are experts. People who'll buy any camera, when they need them, don't come here for a considered and expert review. So, please, when a camera really doesn't cut it, don't give it a score above 5. A score of 7, demeans the narrow band between 8-10. So does 8 now mean "pretty awful" ?
