  • The instructions book is not very helpful or easy to follow for anyone with little experience with cameras…
    Sunshine (Amazon.co.uk) - September 2014
  • Having done so, all nicely packaged instructions clear…
    Mrs.S (Amazon.co.uk) - December 2014
  • Photographs excellent support on website and instruction book are really poor…
  • Only problem is downloading the instructions…
    CJ (Amazon.co.uk) - December 2014
  • A printed instruction book would be useful…
  • If you're buying as a gift as well as the lack of detailed instructions you should also bear in mind that like most cameras now it doesn't come with a case or a memory card…
  • So though you can view through the camera you can't take pictures until a memory card is bought and installed - frustrating! The seven page instruction manual is very basic…
