A camera labs review is on "thereg" and looks good. The camera is ~9Mp,
no anti shake but it does ISO1600 which is better for action shots
and the resolution means I can create Tshirts from it :-)

It also has a GP lens (macro mode thru to "telephoto") and the
lens modes can be used when in movie mode.

It sounds similar to ours - a no name 2Mp jobbie with 'landscape' etc.
The trouble is that every time I try one of the modes I take rubbish
pics - probably my fault :-(

The recent blurred piccies of fridge magnets testify to my incompetence.
