I was in Tesco Extra yesterday and picked up this bargain. Not seen these bundles this cheap before -I know Tesco did have these on their website a month back, but this is cheaper!! They had around 8 left in South London Extra.

Wow, fantastic deal if you can find one!

Voted Hot!
#2
That is a good deal i’ve got the Ixus 75 and thats a wicked camera! sometimes wonder whether I should have brought the Ixus 70 coz its more compact.
#3
This is a better deal than the ixus75 one at Amazon, as they are essentially the same camera, just with a different screen size. You've just got to find one.
#4
Can't go wrong with a Canon!

Hello again, I'd go for this one, but you'll have to find one. You could even flog the printer to make sure you've got money from your budget to get a spare battery, memory card (or cards) and a case. Not sure what these go for, but I suspect you could get about £30 on ebay. No time to check now, about to go out!

Just try and find one or phone around a few Tesco stores before you cancel!:thumbsup:

is this nation wide, can someone confirm?

The ixus70 has a optical viewfinder also. So you can turn off the screen when taking pictures or videos, saving valuable battery.
Also, the slider to switch between shooting and review modes is on the back so the camera is easily operated with one hand. :thumbsup:
Hot.

I can confirm the Watford and Beckton Extra stores don't have stock, shame really as looks a cracking price.

Heat and Rep on it's way :)

I know I've already posted this in the IXUS 75 thread, but in case anyone is interested and hasn't seen it there... apologies for the repeat!

Many of the Canon PowerShot and IXUS cameras can be given a large number of extra features using an add-on firmware called CHDK. This doesn't replace the existing camera firmware but lives on the memory card and gets loaded in, so it's completely safe to use. The extra features include being able to use RAW mode, create custom ISO values, fiddle with exposure times, an extra display mode which displays what areas of a picture will be under or over exposed with current settings, a scripting language based on BASIC which allows things such as time-lapse photography and motion detection, and a whole bunch of other bits of stuff which I haven't yet investigated.

The main website is at http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CHDK, and the IXUS 70 (aka the SD1000 in US terms) is one of the supported cameras - the IXUS 75 (SD750) is currently only beta. More info at http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/SD1000

I've just popped it on an IXUS 50 and it's given it a new lease of life - right now it's taking 1000 shots at 3 second intervals for a short timelapse film.

Might be handy for those wanting a camera to try out some experimental photography without splashing the cash.

A friend has an IXUS 75 and there is a lot of noise in the indoor images it captures. Not impressed. Dont think it will be much different from the ixus 70 on this deal. But I must add that he took the photos without the flash and I was amazed how it captured so much detail without the flash. My canon A80 captures near perfect images indoors but needs the flash always. No flash no image. So there is plenty of improvement I guess.
#14
Can't see online - this might be one of those one only deals that only one person finds in some obscure Tesco branch
#15
Just been and bagged one of these form my Local Tesco (Loughborough) they had loads of them and they were indeed £89 (not £99).

Sweet, was only saying on Monday how I could do with upgrading my old camera (older digital ixus) because it's battery was playing up and was getting a bit battered!

I couldn't get the firmware to update. Just get a black screen. :oops:

You shouldn't need to update the firmware; CHDK loads on top (although it does load via the "Update Firmware" menu option, which might be the confusion). Check the installation instructions carefully, and remember to check that version number of the Canon firmware on the camera first by creating the "ver.req" file and using the appropriate keypress; you have to use the CHDK version appropriate to the firmware you already have on board otherwise it won't work.

I should perhaps have pointed out that while it seemed fairly straightforward on my IXUS 50 your mileage may vary! Access to an SD card reader is also required as you need to write files into the root directory of the card; you can't do it via the camera.
#18
Ah I had the wrong version for my firmware that's all.
No idea how to change any of the new settings though! Can't find any manual or menus!

Once you've loaded the firmware (you'll see the splash screen) most of the functions are accessible by hitting the ALT button; on most IXUS models this is the PictBridge button (the one with the printer and the squiggly arrow next to it that flashes blue when the firmware loads). You'll see "ALT" appear at the bottom of the screen, and the MENU button will then produce the CHDK menu. You can also get CHDK to load automatically, by the way.

The main manual for the extra features is at http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CHDK_firmware_usage and there is an extra set of pages for the "extra extra" features in the AllBest build that you probably have at http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CHDK_firmware_usage/AllBest

Scripting is the most powerful aspect, and downloaded scripts let you do all kinds of things to do with exposure bracketing, HDR, long exposures and timelapse/intervalometers. That can all be found at http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/UBASIC and the library of submitted scripts is at http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/UBASIC/Scripts

I just spotted one for doing HDR (High Dynamic Range) pictures in timelapse - I think I know what I'll be up to this weekend!

Just got back from my Tesco's in Hatfield and the staff there have not heard of this offer. They gave me a camera price blitz leaflet showing the Canon Ixus 75 @ £148.97 (save £20 LOL) and the Canon Ixus 70 @ £129.97 (save £15). I will stick with the Ixus 75 I have ordered from Amazon @ £115.05.

Thanks to OP for spotting this deal. If I could have found one I would have cancelled my order with Amazon. Good luck finding one of these. If anyone finds one located in the Hertfordshire area please let me know.

Ok folks, I got mine so I can now spill the beans. The Tesco Extra in Borehamwood, Herts had 6 on the shelves and "lots" in the warehouse.

I bought 2... go feast!
#25
None in Edinburgh Costorphine :x
#26
there were 7 left on the shelf in Telford's Extra. none in the Home Plus ;)
#27
Cracking deal! I paid £105 for the camera alone a while back from Amazon, but £89 is serous deal for camera alone - and with the printer too is a complete bargain!
#28
Phoned Formby, Southport and Old Swan, never heard of the offer.

Certainly get a Canon if you can! I've got the Ixus 60. Phenomenal camera compared to my years of Sony Cybershots. Much more attractive these too. I am tempted at the price but waiting for one of the Image Stabilisation range to drop and I'll get one of those. Not going to gain anything worthwhile upgrading to a 70 or 75! I love my 2.5 inch screen and viewfinder :D

Just picked one up at the Gatwick Tesco Extra. They had about 6 on the shelf, still priced at £164! Took it to the checkout to check the price and it came up at this reduced price. Voted hot! And thanks!

Hi guys. just come back from a special trip to the Plymouth Tesco. The lady at the desk said they had sold 26 since midday today! There was 3 left but they said they had loads more due.....hopefully to stores near you as well!

Great spot! Thanks
#33
The weathers hot so is damn DEAL

Just poped down to my local tesco, they had 4 of these left priced at £165, took to the till and was indeed £89.95! Fantastic deal.
#35
Amazing deal! Heat added.

I was lucky enough to pick up two of these bad boys in the Slough Extra at about 7pm last night, they had 2 more remaining. The shelf was marked £149.97 but it scans at £89.97. There wre two more left! Happy hunting.

I also called in to Isleworth/Yeading and Southall extra - all were out of stock.

Thanks for this, was looking for this deal since missing it online a week or two ago.

Tesco Home in Bristol (Whitchurch) had 5 or 6 left yesterday afternoon when I was in there. Ask the staff though, as most of them were down a different isle to the main camera bit.

non @ tesco extra - stockport

Hoorah!

Just hope you like it now, and enjoy your trip to America.:thumbsup:

Interesting to see these starting to arrive on ebay (both the pack and the printer by itself) - I wonder how much they'll go for! There's one printer going for £20 +£10 postage on buy it now, so I guess that's going to be about the price anybody's likely to get if they choose to flog the printer.

Got the camera, tested it really happy! Came home to find the Fujifilm F40FD from play.com (it was out of stock when i ordered it)!

Will stick that and the printer on ebay, although it all came in a bundled box so hope that will be ok!

PMed you my Amazon voucher as a thank you :thumbsup:
