Limited stock now available at this brilliant price. Was originally £99 up until last week. Worth tracking down if you've missed out at buying one from Tescos! In store only.

#5
which sainsbury did you find this camera at?
#6
That's a fantastic deal. Shame only available instore. Voted hot!
#7
ive seen the reviews for this camera and they seem pretty great, but am just wondering if theres anything that has shun on the market recently, seems almost 2 years since this came out? seems a great price for a phone that has had much hype about it
#8
I have one and it's a truly great compact camera
#9
Got mine in the Shirley, Solihull store. Alas, it was the last one left. But i'm pretty sure this offer is nationwide. Yes offer is instore only.

I would suggest buying An XD 'H' card to go with it. This is the slightly faster card than the M. Play.com are doing a good price on a Fuji 1GB version at the moment for £8.99 inc delivery! :thumbsup:

Awesome camera...HOT
#11
DABS had these a few weeks ago at the same price. Clearance by the look of it.

Superb camera at best price ever. these will fly off the shelves if they havent already sold out. i suspect this was a clearance at one store only.
#13
Are these new/seconds? Pretty hard to believe they are at this price - I bought the Fuji F11 (at £135) few months before this came out and I thought that was a steal!
#14
None in stock of this or the Z5 in my area of Leeds or dewsbury or harrogate
#15
Phoned them, none in stock in my area.... went up there anyway and got a Fuji Finepix Z5 fd for £49.99 so happy with that!
#16
So I guess the question is now... for the same price, the F20 or the Z5fd?

Other than one being obviously smaller (Z5fd) than the other, what are the pros and cons?
#17
Phoned my Sainsbury in Sunderland and they have 2 in stock. They are keeping 1 for me until
tonight. Will let you know when and if I get it! Thanks for posting. Dont know anything about the camera but seems as though people on here think its a bargain.
#18
I have a Casio Exilim Ez75. Would this be better?
#19
staff discount has gone up to 20% over easter too! bargain

If you manage to find an F20, go for that one.

The F20 is not a particularly stylish camera although its reasonably compact, and it doesn't have the FD (face detection) that the Z5fd has but it is part of the family that included the legendary F31fd and the F30. These cameras have good Super CCD sensors, they are capable of taking photos at a higher ISO level with less 'noise' appearing than many other makes of digital compact camera, they have exceptional low level light picture taking capabilities. Its because they only use 6.3 Megapixels in combination with the super CCD sensor that a 'sweet spot' or balance was found.

A lot of the newer cameras available today are marketed on the fact that they have 10 - 12 Megapixels capability. The manufacturers rely on the fact that the average buyer thinks 'the higher the megapixels, the better the camera will be'. This isn't true, the camera must have a decent enough sensor to cope with the higher megapixel count and on top of this, its processing and lens must be on par too.

Fuji apparently held out for a while and didn't try to compete with other manufacturers in the megapixel count wars, knowing that it was the sensor amongst others things that was most important. But alas, even they have given in. Hence you find that the later Fuji cameras such as the F40 F50 etc. aren't actually as good as the earlier models mentioned above. They have a higher megapixel count but the sensors they have installed cannot deal with this. At the moment the Fuji fans are waiting for in depth reviews of the new Fuji Finepix F100fd to see if finally an up to date successor to the F31fd has been produced.

The F20 is not perfect, it has a lower resolution screen than your average compact. So when viewing photos that you've taken on the screen, they might be pixely looking but if you view them on your PC or print them, you'll be happy. It doesn't have loads of settings to play with either.

But if you're looking for a cheap, digital compact to use with auto settings, I really recommend it. :thumbsup:

I recommend buying one of these to go with it. Also at a great price:

A Fuji 1GB XD card in 'H' specification (slightly higher speed than 'M') at £8.99 delivered from Play.com :thumbsup:

I remember watching a compact camera test on Channel Five's Gadget Show and they said pretty much the same thing. The highest number of pixels average Joe/Josephine will need is about 5-6 megapixels. Alas, like so many things, manufacturers try to appeal to the lowest common denominator and it's a shame Fuji seem to be going the same way from what you've said. Hopefully it's only temporary.

I saw this this this morning but it was marked up at £99 - is the £49.99 price quoted marked on the shleves or does it come in at this price when scanned?
#26
No stock in the Hamilton or East Kilbride stores Scotland. As soon as I saw this post I nipped out the house to see if I could find one, oh well.
#27
Got mine from Sunderland and I've ordered the card from Play.com as some one suggested.
Thanks again everyone
#28
None in Sainsbury Norwich either...
#29
None in anywhere remotely central london
10 of the Z5fd in Sainsburys Sydenham (in brown)

2GB card is £9.85 from Ebay sellers delivered (fast shipping from china, probably faster than/as quick as Play)
#30
I looked for the F20 but could not find anything in London. Instead I bought the Fujifilm Finepix Z5d for £50.

Sainsburys Hendon, had plenty left, but only a few in brown. Lots in pink.
#31
so is this actually a good camera or is it just good for £50. Im gonig to america and need a camera to take some photos.

Thanks for any advice.

Of course you can.

Take the charger with you to USA, Use an adaptor, plug into an amercian socket and then charge away.

Ive only tested this indoors. I cant say I'm over the moon about its picture quality. For £50 it is very good, but I certainly am not totally happy.

If you dont mind using the flash, then there is no problem. However, when I use the flash in dark conditions, the area that is being photod, blatantly looks like a torch is shining, while the outer areas look darker. To solve this problem, I take all pics without the flash.
#35
I bought one 2 days ago, and with wifes 20% discount code, came to £40 :-D

Have used camera before as I bought one for sons birthday last year (£100 )

I also bought 2gb xd card from ebay for £9.35.:-D

All I need is a small camera bag for it now

Hi

Picked one up today at Newbury park Sainsburys apparently there were 3 others left.

Ring head office helpline on 0207 695 6000 to see if any still left and they will reserve it for you.

She also said there were some in Wandsworth branch but don't ring store as they don't always give you right info.

Paid £49.99.

Thanks for original tip!
