I went to my local Sainsburys this morning and saw a couple of cameras sold as 'manager's specials'. They included this Fuji camera (they had more than 1 in stock) and also:
-Sony s930
-Sony s950
-Samsung es17
-Fuji a160

Even though I wasn't looking for one, decided to buy the F60fd and I can say it is a brilliant camera. It takes really nice pics, looks really expensive and solid (metal casing). The woman said they were £130 before but they have some new cameras due in, so they have to sell these.

Not sure if the offer's available online though.

-----------------
* 12 million pixel Super CCD VII HR
* Scene Recognition (SR AUTO)
* Face Detection 3.0 with automatic red-eye removal
* Portrait Enhancer
* Dual Image Stabilisation
* Wide view 3-inch LCD screen
* Micro Thumbnail (100 shot) view

Fujifilm are delighted to introduce the FinePix F60fd, the successor to the hugely popular FinePix F50fd. Packed with innovative technology and introducing exclusive new features, the FinePix F60fd is designed to make it easier than ever to get perfect pictures and stunning portraits in even the most challenging situations.

The all-new sleek and slim metal body is a mere 22.9mm thick and the 'Aero curve' design means that the FinePix F60fd isn't just capable of taking beautiful pictures; it's stylish and slim enough to slip into any pocket or purse.

For those of you that like to get creative with your photography the FinePix F60fd has the option of full control, and performs equally well if you choose to rely on auto mode.

Good spot!
#4
can anyone confirm this deal in other stores?!
#5
This is seriously hot IMHO H&R coming your way :thumbsup:

I have the F50fd which is excellent, only downside is the lack of a viewfinder which I suspect is the same with the F60fd.
#6
all discontinued cameras are £49 instore. managers special point of sale mean nothing, they make them if there are no point of sale available.
#7
So is this nationwide or just a 1-off store clearance deal?

Looks like there is a clearance going on in all stores - precise models and stock seem to vary between the stores.

i would say that this is the price across all stores, £49 is the flat price for all discontinued cameras, as is £129 for all discontinued netbooks. however not all stores have a huge range of cameras, some just have left overs from previous promotions that have not been sold.

I picked up a pink Ixus 95i two weeks ago which apparently was a discontinued colour, but it was £114.50, not £49.

wide angle lens?

i can confirm that these and others are available in other stores, last night i spotted 7+ different cameras all priced at £49, they included the Fuji F60 fd, the Fuji J30, the Samsung ES15, Samsung ES55, the Canon powershot A480, and a Sony cybershot (forgot the model) and one other.

I asked the lady at the electrical desk to put the J30 and F60 to one side so i could decide overnight which one to get, plumped for the J30 in the end.
I was told a lot of these cameras are ex display models though - but you do get a years warranty just in case.

fair enough but this discontinued price of £49 started last week. applies to discontinued lines for sainsburys, lines they don't want to stock anymore rather than the models the manufaturer discontinue.

Some in Wolverhampton. I got a fujifilmX35 with free digital photo frame for £49.00. Still £87.99 in Argos and that is just for the camera.

Repost (duplicate?) of the general offer. http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/678198/canon-powershot-a480-digital-camera
Nice to know their are even more camera types than I had posted though.

Good price but they are woefully unreliable and a nightmare to get Fuji UK to repair under warranty and when they do finally agree to repair it comes back still faulty. The aggressive pricing is the only way they can get folk to buy them.

Oh :? was just coming back on to say I managed to get one at Gloucester Quays and was feeling all chuffed with myself, but reading the above, maybe I shouldn't have got it.
#22
Heh sorry...well at that price its a bit of a bargain and would only have to last a year or so to get your moneys worth.
#23
You should also be able to go to Fuji's web site and buy their extended warranty (which includes accidental damage) if you want peace of mind. I agree with the earlier comment that cameras do tend to come back with a fault (the original one, or something new) though.

Here is the Which Review:

#The F60fd is a relatively cheap 12Mp camera from Fujifilm that has a range of features once only found in more expensive models. It's not quite a Best Buy, but is definitely worth considering if you're after a straightforward compact model.

There's no full manual mode to keep hands-on enthusiasts tinkering away, though there are dedicated aperture and shutter speed priority modes. You can choose from 15 scene modes to quickly select the best picture settings for certain kinds of shots.

Face detection helps you pick maintain focus on individuals in your shot, and the x3 zoom lens benefits from an image stabiliser that limits the effect of wobbly hands.

The maximum ISO is 1,600, which can help with low light conditions, and our testers were generally very impressed with the F60fd's low-light performance – rare for a compact camera. Overall image quality is average for a compact model, and colour reproduction is very good. Images are free of distortion, and overall this is a camera that is likely to satisfy most casual users with its results.

The movie mode is less impressive, though. It's rare for a compact digital camera to do much justice to recorded video clips, and you won't get anything approaching the quality of camcorder footage using the F60fd.

The F60fd is relatively fast in operation, though we've come across faster cameras. It's ready for operation less than three seconds after you switch it on, though the lag between shots is a slightly disappointing 3.25 seconds. At full resolution, the burst mode is disappointingly slow, but if you reduce the resolution to 3Mp the camera can take a picture every 0.18 seconds until the memory card is full. The shutter delay is excellent, however – the camera will focus and take a shot very rapidly after the button is pressed.

Though it misses out on our Best Buy standard, the F60fd is a good choice for a compact camera if you're on a budget but don't want to miss out on some of the more advanced features available in digital cameras.

Pros: Affordable, fast shutter speed, compact, good low-light pictures

Cons: Poor movie quality, no full manual focus
#25
Is it worth buying if I already own a Fuji F20 ?
#26
Sainsburys in Stoke have a couple left of various cameras for £49

I've just picked up a Fuji A160.. and when i've had a play with it i'll be happy :-D
#27
Damnit! Why does the sainsburys in Crewe suck so much, ours doesn't sell techy stuff :(
Really need a compact for when I'm on holiday later this year after my old kodak died...

I saw the F60fd in the Whitechapel Sainsbury's (East London) near the photo processing counter for £49 if anyones after one.

I've got a 3 year old F20, 4 year old z5fd, a 6 month old F200EXR and the wife's got a 2 year old F100fd (yes, love my fuji's - hate taking shots with flash, but even when I have to use flash it comes out better than most brands due to the intelligent flash throttling). All units running fine like the day they were bought. Haven't dropped any of them yet and keep them in a case. Provided they're looked after, don't think Fuji's are any worse than other brands.

They fixed one of my Fuji Camera's in a few days under warranty, I sent it to them on the Monday, they got it Tuesday, sent it back fully repaired on the Wednesday, I received it on the Thursday.

It doesn't get much better than that.
