The black version of this was posted a week or two ago but has now sold out. This one is still available & I think the colour looks quite smart. Also a few pennies cheaper so not a duplicate post!

Very good camera this a friend of mine has one. Only problem is the flash is placed too close to the hand grip and your finger sometimes goes over part of it. Takes some good pics specially in poor lighting.
