Top 100 Electronics Reviewer

Very pleased with crisp high quality pictures produced from the RZ10.
The 10x zoom is great and if you have a tripod it helps steady the camera on long range shots.
I like the feel of the camera, it's got a grippy rubberised feel in your hands.
Coming with a rechargeable battery means no money wasted on disposable batteries - a welcome relief.
In summary this is a very good camera, highly recommended.
