Our Verdict:
An award winning but slightly out of date 339g digital camera, good for everyday photography. It has a touchscreen, a display diagonal of 3.7" and a camera shutter speed of 1/4000s and supports Wi-Fi. Several reviews mentioned that this digital camera has a good autofocus and it's compact.

Only 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels video resolution
Only 4928 x 3264 pixels image resolution

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the digital camera is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec digital cameras come to market, the older digital cameras will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
