I'm pretty sure this is the same model they were doing for this price around Christmas time but it went back to £59.99 afterwards.

It's not the greatest camera on the market but it's a decent little snapshot camera from a respected maker. At this price there's no need to look at all those dubious 'secondary brand' ones which keep popping up (Agfa, Polaroid, Hitachi, etc.).


SD/SDHC memory compatible. Power is by AA batteries - wouldn't be my choice for that reason but some HUKD posters insist this is the way to go (with some decent rechargeables).

Remember, some Fuji models have reliability problems.
Often secondary brands are not so bad. (But, I know of bad experiences with Hitachi)
Search ebay and find out how many faulty Fuji cameras there are.
I had a Fuji that had to be repaired 3 times in 2 years. A common fault.
I then purchased Panasonic, and so far no issues.

But I don't live AA batteries either.

Good price for Fuji. £53.04 in Dixons. So a few pounds less here.

£48 at Pixmania (but you have to pay delivery)

I believe Hitachi are rebranded Vivitar. Seems a reasonable price to be honest for a budget point and shoot.

I think you are correct. Argos used to sell these and then dumped some models on their ebay store as batteries in these models would run out within 2 hours. The camera would constantly drain batteries. I think Hitachi are ruining their brand name!

Vivitar went bust in 2008 and were then taken over by another company, Sakar, and continue to sell cameras under the brand.

However, some Vivitar cameras were actually quite good.

I think we are off the subject!

I agree re Panasonic - they are the best.

Are you saying Fuji are less reliable than others? They sell a lot of cameras so some are bound to go wrong but I hadn't picked up on this being a Fuji trait in particular. Even Toyota can make faulty cars so no one's perfect!

Bought this one few weeks ago for £45 and fuji have sent me a extended warranty through once registerd on line for £10 for 3 years and includes for accidental damage etc obviously T & C apply but for £55 or in this case £60 not too bad for 3 years peace of mind as i'll probably give this camera more abuse than my SLR :-D

I'd never buy those DSG, etc. extended warranties but £10 for an extra 2 years with accidental damage included from Fuji sounds really good to me. Just what my daughter needs - she can break anything in a week or two.
