wow brilliant price! almost regret just buying the panny Tz7 now!!!!!!!
#2
Just tried earlier link on off-chance and found stock so ordered, although this time it was £140 rather than £135 with the code. Wasn't going to mess around as I missed a couple of computers by doing that so just ordered.

Couldn't see way to resurrect earlier posts so created a new one.

Good luck...

Does anyone know if this camera has a port for a trigger-switch? I.e. can you plug in a cable with a bite-switch to take photos? Can't find a detailed description of the ports.
#4
Good spot :thumbsup:
There wasn't any stock when I looked an hour or so ago - but 40+ now.

is this comes with lithium ion battery too?

I very much doubt it would - these are just compact cameras - I can't see any reference to using one and my Fuji s800fd & s5700 didn't have one.

I know that some canon cameras using the CHDK firmware can be triggered through the USB connection - might be worth looking into that...

Edit: OK - Just looked up what a bite-switch is - guess you won't want to use a laptop plugged in to a camera when free-falling...

Fortunately not - it takes 4xAA - decent rechargeables should give you several hundred shots...

If you want lion power consider the 10 x zoom F70EXR (aka F72EXR) around the same price - no 720p video but (from reviews) much better quality images, and very compact.

Cheers dude, just ordered one as its exactly what i'm looking for, good price, THANKS

£224 is a bit misleading as Amazon have it for £159.....£140 is still hot though. Nice camera!

I see what you're getting at but £224 is not misleading - that's exactly what Fuji would charge if you didn't use the discount code - not quite the same as those offers that quote the original RRP when no one's sold at that price for a year or more...

Beware these are not as good as they seem, better of with a compact TZ7 or SX200 much better and smaller

Same here - pondered too long last time and went out of stock. Just ordered one now!

[SIZE="2"]I think you may be mistaken. The controller that comes with the camera seems to be the HD-S2 which is for controlling the camera when attached to the television or the like, not for taking pictures.[/SIZE]

Just tried again and yes it is £155 now.

Maybe they have installed market place discount codes that automatically adjust depending upon interest.
#18

#19
yes, now £155 with code. oh well...!

I got this last time it was posted - here are my thoughts...

The pictures are OK - not fantastic but pretty good. The HD video is really good, and I love it that the videos transfer to my pc along with my pitures during the standard picture import. I find I take much more video than I used to. With my old video camera it was such a pain to transfer via firewire that I never bothered. The video quality is also really good and it is good that you can use the zoom during video mode.

However, it is a pain that you cant switch off the autofocus in video mode, meaning that it sometimes jumps in and out of focus in the middle of filming. It would be much better if you could just lock the focus to a given value and not have it change at all. Also, there is a lot of noise during the video due to the zoom and also, unfortunatly, the constant focus clicking. It's fine in fairly noisy situations because you cant hear it, but during quiet videos it is distracting. You can hear the autofocus clicking on many of the S2000HD video tests you can find on youtube. Again, it would have been great if you could have just locked to focus when filming as it would have stopped this from being an issue.

The manual controls provide control over ISO and shutter speed (up to 4 seconds), but there is very little control over appature size - only two steps. This means that you cannot play around with depth of field very much at all.

I have been very pleased with the image stabalization - even at full zoom pictrures come out fairly crisp. I am laso very happy with battery life - I use a 15 min charger with high capacity batteries, and they last for quite a while usnig photos and videos. It has a good high speed USB connection so downloads from the camera are quite speedy.

Mine came with the optional HD kit, including IR remote, which I was not expecting. The IR control is really useful.

Overall I am very pleased with it - it is a good intro for me to photography. If I carry on enjoying it I will probably upgrade to a proper DSLR in a year or so in order to get more control over my shots.

If you want a good zoom camera which can take OK quality shots and have a good HD video quality I would say go for it. However, if you are not interested in the video mode then you might want to look elsewhere as the picture quality and manual controls are not as good as they could be.
Here are a few photos I took with it if you want to get an idea of image quality.

thank you for that review davedixon!! I really want it more for the pictures... Hmmm in two minds now whether or not to go for this now. Just thought on the off chance here I'd get a good camera for good pictures of Madrid when I'm there in a few weeks time!
#22
Thanks for your review davedixson.

It is rare that ppl actually give feedback after they bought. I agree with your findings about the S2000HD. This is also my experience when I tested it. In the end I bought a S6500, which is so much better for photographs (but no HD video). This model is now discontinued tho. Given some rep.

In the day time it will take lovely pictures of scenery as I took it with me on a trip to Copenhagen, takes in colours really well.

Just remember, its not a DSLR. Youre getting a great camera for the money and its a good upgrade from a compact.
I will invest in a DSLR soon but for now this is perfect.

Look at the F72EXR from Jessop. It's the same as the F70EXR and with Fuji cashback will cost you £139. Much better picture quality, but no HD video and smaller zoom
#25
I must warn you, this model has a wide spread fault effecting the HD Video recording. All HD videos have a very high pitched sound in the background.. it's really offputting if you're young enough to hear it!

The price is good for brand new, when they are in stock refurbing Fuji usually charge £135.99 with 6 month warranty...

Mine has no high pitched sound that I have noticed, thuogh the near constat focus clicking is annoying in quiet scenes - maybe I was just lucky or maybe my hearing is going in my old age. There are lots of test shots on youtube so I would check those out if you want to get an idea of how it sounds.

thanks pet2000 but am never ordering from Jessops again sorry... got a duff camera from them last time and they refused me a replacement one as I'd got it online and they couldnt refund onto the card I paid with as it was a credit card without pin function!! Then they repeatedly ignored me requesting it to be returned via post to them... so was outta pocket £80 because of it.

Mozza I'd like one that takes cracking pics at night too.

(And without blur when you take pics in zoom mode as like most normal folk I don't go walking about with a tripod hehe)

Really do want a DSLR though but think they're a lot more pricey!! My boss took in his photography portfolio today for us to look at... simply stunning. Always wanted to get into photography properly

The F70EXR is £175 at Amazon - £145 after the cashback...

I'd think a properly pocket sized compact zoom would complement a DSLR nicely :thumbsup:

Definately in stock at the moment just ordered one, great price for a very good camera
Hot Hot Hot !!!!!!

After applying the code - the price comes down to £155 and NOT £140 :x :x
So, alternatively can be ordered from : http://www.simplyelectronics.net/mainproduct.php?pid=4526&gclid=CMDitqO9op8CFUYA4wode3mEIA
for £152.95.

Yes - the discount changed earlier yesterday due to all the attention no doubt... the amount of discount on these codes has been going up and down like nobodys business - I'd suggest trying again in a few days if you want the lower price...

Simply electronics is showing 2 in stock - there are still 25 in stock at Fuji.

Yes same for me ............ £155 not that hot

According to the manual you can use the remote as a remote shutter release. See the box at the bottom of page 59.

"The remote control can be used to control the camera during playback or as a remote shutter release."

The remote can be used, but it is not a standard accessory and comes with the optional HD accessory pack. The camera I got from Fuji the other week had the accessory pack included though so you may be lucky as well.

Just got mine today, came with hd-s2 remote kit as well.

Seems like a great camera for the price if you are happy with the "bridge" style size.

Much quicker than my old Fuji to take larger files and has larger LCD display.

Will spend weekend trying it out.

Hopefully discount will revert after a period.

Price drop could be because soon to be replaced, or pound has recovered somewhat and therefore imports are now cheaper.
#39
code still takes it to £155

I wouldn't bother, I bought the S2000HD and sent it back. Picture quality is terrible, the flash is far too strong and over exposes everything and you can hear the zoom on videos. Thought it was too good to be true at this price and it was.

I replaced it with a Sony DSC-H20 which takes far better pics than this, Fuji F70EXR, Pani TZ7 etc..
