Why Has it Scored 70?

our review analysis indicates that it has very good expert reviews with an average expert rating of 90%.

This GE digital camera has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Ok minimum aperture number
Ok optical zoom
Pan-Capture panorama
Auto scene detection
Blink detection
Smile detection
Face detection
Image stabilization

What is the Kagoo Score?
