  • Simple to use, my only gripe being the instruction leaflet was very vague regarding loading pictures onto pc…
  • Both my friend and my daughter have recently bought new cameras and theirs have full instructions…
  • The only pain is that it only comes with quick start instructions making it necessary to endure the rigmarole of the web site…
