The camera has a number of positive reviews on Amazon UK, including this one:

” The camera allows a complete novice to take decent photos. The instructions are not too complicated and one doesn’t feel intimidated by an avalanche of directions in how to do all the different things. It has a “point and shoot” option where the camera will automatically choose the right setting. One particularly good setting is the “panoramic” one, which takes spectacular photos. All in all, I’m very happy with the purchase and would recommend it to other beginners.”
