great service ! Thanks
Great - thanks Review by j (Posted on 14/07/2011)
Quick delivery, great camera
Very pleased with the camera. Knew the dimensions but still surprised at how small it was. Battery seems to last for ever. Not looked at the manual as it is easy to use and obvious what does what. Except for films, I only seem to be ably to get films 20 seconds long - I guess I will need to look this up in the manual... Review by Holjam (Posted on 04/07/2011)
