I have one of these cameras (bought originally for £240) which is going back for a full refund! I've now bought the same one at discount from Argos. It's a seriously good camera- I have a few different digital cameras, and this one works very well. Set it up in ISO 6400 mode with continuous focus adjustment and it takes the best pics ever. Guaranteed. The white balance modes are also rather clever, as is the continuous shooting mode.
AND it also has FULL HD video, so you can take stills and shoot quality video... My only gripe is that you can't attach filters to the lens for special effects photography. Although saying that, you can do just about everything you would want to using photoshop. Batteries last ages too. It's a nice camera. If there is an Argos locally grab the deal- I'm sure it wont last forever. Even on Ebay they go for £180...

NOT FULL HD, its 720p.

Seen it instore at tesco for around the same price for some time.

Ok price for their budget super zoom I guess.

Bought one last time, they have 2 year warranty, which is a big plus.

Hot added, but you need to know that this camera is started to be discounted globally.

I seen this camera for ~ 149 GBP few days ago without any "specials offers".

This camera have faulty socket for stand - body can break there so watch out.


Edit: If you need to buy something wait few weeks for higher model (will get lower price - heard this in Comet)

I thought this too until I bought a camera that used normal AA's, but it's been useful a few times as you can buy these anywhere in the world and aren't relying on finding a plug every few days

Cheers OP - reserved one. Shame about the lack of viewfinder, but can't fault the price...
#21
Hot, would be tempted but - like others - for the lack of a viewfinder. A major oversight.

if anyone wants one then i have a reservation code for bradford forster sq

decided not to get one!
#25
I actually prefer a camera that takes AA batteries as long-lasting AA high capacity NiMH rechargeable batteries are very affordable but a bridge camera without a viewfinder is one big negative for me though forgiveable at this price (but not at the original full price).

have reservation in Liverpool store.....still thinking to pick up or not............:3

Bought one last saturday, beautiful camera for the money , problem with AA batteries ? get a grip the most common portable power source widely available in probably every country in the world your likely to go....... buy rechargeables and carry a small charger if that helps stop you having duracell panic attacks.
Excellent camera for the money , if you looking for the build and quality of a proffessional expensive camera then go spend £1500 plus , if your looking for a good quality general purpose camera then buy it i'm seriously considering buying a second one , the first one was for my daughter who is taking a photography course.

HOT , i have one and i want another.

If I had a quid for every time I read a comment in a camera thread containing the words 'AA batteries' countered by 'available anywhere in the world' I would not need to be browsing this website because I'd be rich and couldn't give a toss what stuff cost.

Still, I only read threads for the banter. :p

Don't get me started on Onkyo or Mac though.

My advice, avoid bridge cameras and just go with a cheap DSLR. TBH I regret my bridge camera purchase, at least I didn't spend over £100 on it.

Would this be better than an older DSLR like the canon eos 350d?

You pays your money and takes your choice...Not gonna get much of anything bridge or SLR for silly money you paid!

There are some cracking bridge cameras out there that almost perform better than some SLR's!

It depends what you want to do with it and whether you already have decent lenses on your 350D. I have a 350D and 40D and some great lenses but bought a superzoom bridge camera as it was about half the price of buying a new zoom lense for the DSLRs - it really depends what you want to do with it.

Generally bridges will not be as good as DSLRs e.g will not have as many manual options, optical quality will not be as good due to smaller sensor sizes and they will not be as good in low light conditions BUT they are convenient and for most average users the perfect compromise. Dont get dragged into the camera snobbery trap - if you have a use for a bridge camera this represents excellent value for money - Im getting one for my aunt who is planning a trip across the USA.

I think this beast is better than both my D-SLRs, my 2 compacts and 3 subcompacts. The thing that I find is the biggest pain with most digital cameras is turn-on time, processing time, save to memory time and battery life. The Nikon L120 turns on in about 1 second (which is still relatively slow compared to 35mm cameras), but fast compared to others. Processing is very quick, as is saving time.The image stabilisation works well, and the contrast ratio of images is relatively high (compared to older digital sensors). Nikon are close to the amazing quality Zeiss lenses, so relatively good IMHO. The comment that it doesn't have a viewfinder is valid, but the screen is so large and bright, I've never found it to be an issue while using it. I've played with other cameras like Lumix and Finepix, and I think you get a little less lens flare with the Nikon. I also think that the CCD saturation point on the L120 is higher (you don't get those lines going down the image when you are looking at something dark and there is a really bright point in the frame). I'm only an amatuer when it comes to photography. This is a lightweight camera, and probably isn't suited for pros who have to jostle in crowds. You need a metal camera under those circumstances. Personally I like it, and use it in the 3 Mega pixel mode, as I generally only view my results on a screen or print to 7 by 5.

No manual controls at all so not for me :-(

I'm not a high-level photographer but I do like to at least tinker - this is just a large point and shoot with great optics I guess.

Anyway, it's available for the same price at Tesco - red version. Added to post.
