The syma x8w is a good machine. I have a Quanum Nova or CX20 as there also know as. It's a similar size just with GPS and mission programming. I have lots of smaller models for garden flying my favorite being the WL toys V222 which I think may have been recently superseded. The biggest downfall on the cheaper quads is the low grade transmitters and limited range.I tend to go for models where I can add my own receiver so I can use my high quality Spektrum TX, hopefully for safer flying and full range.


Thanks for that info I will definitely take that on board and look into it in more depth. :)

The Quadcopter market is flooded at the moment and being the most popular RC craft ever the choice is immense. My advice is decide what you are going to do with the machine then carefully select a model.This is certainly NOT a beginners model. If you already own a GoPro then there are cheaper options available.
Please remember this size class of quads are not toys and will require BMFA insurance to fly anywhere public. Certainly not for garden use. While on the subject of garden flying (Sites not smaller than 100ftx30ft ) I would suggest going no bigger than the 250 class of Quads. I would still advise insurance as any accident claim against you would be very expensive.

Voting hot...;)




I know what you mean about a flooded market. At the moment I own a udi falcon and was looking at this as a much more advanced model for me to move up to and make much better quality footage with. I have since bought a syma x8w with the thought of modding it a little to try and get to know how they work and what helps them perform better. I'm keen to find out what other hukders are flying to give me even more choice

Apart from portraits the 45mm is probably one of the best Olympus M.Zuiko lenses in terms of cost and weight. Its perfect for macro and close up shots and is super sharp.

The main problem with the EM10 is lack of weather-proofing IMHO - I don't really see much advantage over the smaller lighter cheaper PEN series without that as they have the same sensor. Still a reasonably good deal compared to usual price. I got the EM5 Mk.I on recent Amazon Prime day and very happy with that. It will have cost me less than the EM10 once I sell off the battery handle and possibly the 45mm prime lens I don't think I need.


45mm prime lens not needed, do you not take any portrait shots?
SOLD OUT - both colours.

Cant see any mention of the automatic £75 off just the redemption from Olympus.
It's not automatic, you have to use Promo Code "OLYSUMMER" at checkout
These shots taken with the EM10 at an Olympus event (granted with the 40-150 2.8 lens) brilliant camera , may pull the trigger on this one..

Yeah just had that call myself. Bit disappointed but it was an impulse buy!

Cancelled as I wanted the flexibility of the longer zoom.

Yes a bit disappointing to allow purchase on website when they had no stock.

I stuck with my S10 order just to see if it beats a P&S camera of a similar price range. If not I'm sure I can easily recoup my money by selling it on.

Purchased the body + P10 kit, the S10 lens and the 50mm macro lens for £329. Seems like a solid range of lenses. The 50mm seems to have particularly good reviews.

Entire set was cheaper than buying a macro lens for my aging Olympus E510

Hope your order goes through for the P10 - just had a call from Clifton saying they dont have these in stock and can't get any more, but the order for the S10 should be fine

The weight & build quality shows clearly where a lot of the extra money has gone.
If you want a real bridge camera, this is the only one - the rest are all plastic toys.
Having come from a Panny FZ50, I should've been opting for the FZ200 - thank Christ I'm not blinded by brand or brand loyalty (FZ10 prior to that).
It's not perfect - but for the price, it's a veritable steal.
Grab one while you can, because I can't see them doing an X-S1 Mk II.

Whilst it'd be lovely to have an APS-C sensor (a la Sony RX1), the lens cost & size (for same aperture & zoom) would be much larger & more expensive, and weightier.
Short of subsidised sales, it'd be priced out of the market.

Nice idea in theory, but just not practical.
It's a good camera but is it really worth double the money from HS20/30? It's still a very small sensor.

I have the D3 (yes it's discontinued, replaced by the D3s) and a D700 and I'd agree with most of the comments re the 700 being a better bet right now with the battery promotion.

There are some advantages for the D3 over the D700 however unless you are using either camera a great deal they won't be too noticable.

For the pedants amongst you, the D3 is 9fps, the D700 (with grip) 8fps.

If you can afford it, get the D3, I got mine second hand on fleabay for £1650.

This is a hot price for a new D3 though.
apart from the speed there's not many advantages over the d700. in fact I prefer the d700 over the d3. sensor cleaning, on camera flash which can act as a commander, a few tweaks in the menu system and weight are just to list a few. with the battery grip on it does feel heavier and looks bigger, but you do have the option to remove the battery grip. by the way with the grip attached the d700 is as fast as the d3. build quality of the d700 is also fantastic. has a suttee life of 150,000 doubt wether any non pro will go through the life of the shutter. I did have a d3 but was a bit too big for me to take out when on leisure. even at wedding shoots I take my grip but is hardly used as I can easily take 1000 shots with the standard nikon battery. not regretted since buying the d700. also thought the d3 was discontinued? as not many stock this, currys have an bay outlet where they sell end of line stock . this is where I picked up a new d3 for £1900, used it for a month and sold it for more than I paid and purchased a d700

Seems a good price to me. Is there a better price degudodger. The link won't open. Why is this voted so cold.


because the planks on here think its overpriced and a vaginatech asda camera is only 1p


That is true. They would probably say a bugatti veyron for £50000 was a bad deal because they can get a citroen c1 for under £10000. I would also agree with the D700 comment, though. Unless you are a pro and need the extra weather seals then the d700+mb-d10 is a better solution. This deal is £300 less than anywhere else, though. You could spend that on an SB-800 or 4 x 8GB extreme iv cards. Hot deal from me.

FWIW

Clifton Cameras are very good to deal with in my experience. I bought my DSLR twin lens kit from them as both their price and customer service were very good. They sell UK goods and they are a Nikkor Lenses Premier Dealer.

too bad it's not VR II


As I understand Nikon's naming scheme. The apparent VR I and VR II do not mean a specific version of the VR, the I and II relate to the lens as a whole. The VR on a lens is that current when the lens is released. The I updates to II when the lens optics are updated.

See link above, it is VR II

This Sigma is a great camera for those who want to invest the time in post processing.
The sensor produces IQ for ISO 400 and under that has characteristics no other beyer APS-C camera has at the moment.
The lens is also excellent.

It is an act of love, if this doesn't appeal to you then this camera is not for you.

In conclusion, a very niche product that is a bargain if you know you want the niche.
Really not for folk who just want a "good quality" compact.
pet2000;8817855
Buit you get interchangable lenses for less than £300 (Olympus EP-1). Because the Sigma is so limited, you would need a second cameras if you want to take non-landscape photos (portraits for example). That's much more expensive.



Good point. I didn't realise before that this is a fixed lens camera, making something like the Olympus or Panasonic alternatives a much better better, even if they are quite a bit more. You certainly know your cameras! added to your rep.
andyken;8816534
'Little more'? The next cheapest APS sensor camera is around £350, as far as I can tell, making this hot in my book, despite its imperfections. At this price the only real competition is compacts, which this will wipe the floor with!

I believe this camera is over-rated. Limited focal length, noisy, slow. There are better APS size cameras on the market today for little more money.

'VERY LIMITED AVAILABILITY, SUPER SELL OFF EXCLUSIVE PRICE'

Gee, I thought it would be long gone by now...
This is not a point and shoot. It is a rangefinder. I agree that at this price I would be tempted as well... if only I haven't got a 40" tele and the O2 joggler recently (and have loads of money in the bank)!
Dont forget the delivery fee of £5.
Its a brilliant camera, if it suits your application. For a true landscape photographer, its a dream - yet IMO for an average joe, something like a TZ7 would be much better suited.

No denying its brilliant piece of hardware for the price, but just know what your getting before getting it!

http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/sigmadp1/page21.asp

'As it stands though the DP1 has not been developed to its full potential yet and can only really be recommended for landscape photography (and similar applications) in reasonable light and to photographers who can live with a frustratingly slow speed of operation and the other shortcomings we have talked about above. In the vast majority of situations you'd be better off with a good 'conventional' compact camera and even if you think the DP1 would serve your specific purposes well you'll have to decide if you're willing to shell out the premium that Sigma is asking for. '
kiwikeen;8349195


At this price I would have grabbed one just to have a bit of a play round with, if only the fine folks at Sigma hadn't chosen to attach such a ridiculously slow prime too it. Very poor show from a company who mainly produce lenses. :x


Unfortunately it's just the consequence of packing in so much for a small package - the Olympus E-Px series are much larger cameras (even though they don't look it in pictures) and the Olympus 17mm pancake is only one stop faster, it's not a wide angle lens either. The DP2's lens is closer to the Olympus 17mm lens and they're both the same F2.8 speed. Panasonic's 20mm F1.7 (again a non-wide angle lens) does offer a wider aperture but it's still a much larger package than the DP1 In order to have the small body and keep the wide angle lens small with the SLR sized sensor the lens had to be reduced to a prime with its slow F4 aperture.

That said even at this price I wouldn't go for a DP1, in certain circumstances it can produce impressive results but it's just way too quirky a camera for me as it has a lot of problems. While the LX3 has a much smaller sensor I prefer it as a general use compact to always have in my pocket as it's more versatile - its two stop advantage on the lens removes much of the DP1's large sensor advantage.

Only a problem if you leave it to the camera to select the focus point but on practice its not that big of an issue even then.

Hence my reference to the review, which is more neutral than my personal dicussion of the camera..
The decider for me are: AA type batteries, fast prime lenses (rather than slow zoom), and compatebility of almost all Pentax lenses ever made, which give me a huge choice of lenses. After all it is the lens which determines the outcome of a picture, not so much electronic gadgets of a camera body.


Could not agree more, your comments were perfectly reasonable. The lack of camera based VR was the reason that I made the switch from Canon EOS 35mm which I had from their very first EOS model to Pentax. The fact that I also had some Tamron Adaptall lenses that I used on Canon FD and converted to Pentax K was a bonus.
Just bought a K-X and paid more than this so a bit gutted. Good deal voted hot.
