  • Battery cover is made of very soft plastic that will crumble away if a coin is used to try and open it. Use the special plastic "key" on the neck-strap instead.
  • The pop-out flash takes getting used to, as it sits in the natural position for gripping the camera. It also pops out whether it is needed or not.
  • The lens produces slight pin cushion distortion at the wide end of the zoom range.
