Positive review:

http://www.steves-digicams.com/camera-reviews/canon/powershot-a3000-is/canon-a3000-is-review.html

Another review which suggests there are better options for image quality at the original price of £200 but still gives it 18/20 in that area.

Consider this better deal, IMO: Panasonic F3 posted earlier today. Much better optical zoom (28mm - 112mm) and HD video (720p) for £13 more.

The F3 lacks the usual better quality lens of other Lumix cameras and no optical image stabilisation.

Lens is fine for holiday snap shots and you dont need IS at this zoom range.(Neither the Canon 3000 nor the F3 are capable of taking quality pictures for professional use. I'd say you would not be able to see a difference of your holiday shots).

Do you want a good tool or display your gadget for it's looks?

Good for this price but it was never gonna compete at £200 despite what the bent reviews say.
