Fantastic find, cheapest elsewhere £35, I have bought one for the kids, thanks ..............................but be warned, there seems to be a problem with some of them, if you look at the argos reviews some seem to drain batteries for fun and keep switching off..........these must be the ones they sent back........let's hope Hitachi really have updated the firmware or whatever the problem was.................KEEP you receipt.

My kids have this and it's pants. Can only take about 20 pics then the batteries die.. I'd stay away..

Voted hot because of the price for this particular item but I would never buy anything like this for my kids, it is just not fit for purpose .For around the same money you can buy used nikon 5200,5900 or similar generation 4 or 5MP cameras which are much better made,have li-ion batteries and allow you take decent pictures in almost all conditions... unlike this one .

+1 if you dont mind second hand. 5mp is plenty if you not printing bigger then A4.

Good deal if you want something with some comeback

thank you for the post, I had a similar samsung and it was pants with batteries. I'd rather buy a 2nd hand cam.

I bought this the last time it was posted.

Camera was broken - sent it back for a refund.

Don't think it is even worth £16.99 :(

Bought this the last time Argos/outlet had them......and ......lasted one day and it stopped taking pictures but strangely it was still able to shoot video.

Bought a second after returning the first and it lasted only 2 days before the same problem occured.

Not voting either way because it's still a good price if you get one that works.

No point buying at any price if it's just going to annoy the hell out of you.

17 quid is cheap for camera but a lot of money for a camera shaped object which doesn't work properly.

So, it's complete rubbish but it's cheap so it gets hot! Good ol' HUKD - a pile of dog poo would get hot if it was cheap enough!

Maybe too many people are voting based on the headline alone (eg on their phones)?

I have about £50 to spend. I am not bothered if it is second hand. I think rechargeable is important for me. What camera would you recommend ?

riyaz_7, I got a refurbed 10.2 mp Fuji Finepix J28 last year (I needed a pocket camera for when I couldn't take along my Finepix s5700) and I've been very pleased with it for the £50 I paid. You can now get them new for under £60. The camera recharges from the mains. Mixed reviews on the web but mine has been a good bit of kit so far.

I'd point you towards Fuji (decent cameras often at budget prices) but I don't have a specific deal to recommend. I think Sainsbury's had a rechargeable Fuji for around £60 this week but I suspect you can better that. You're wise not to go foe AA power - false economy.

Good grief - it's over 300 degrees!!!!!!! Can't these people read? Will they ever learn? 17 quid is an expensive lesson.

My abovementioned pocket Fuji has built-in power, whereas my s5700 runs on AAs. Both systems have pros and cons: Built-in rechargeables are convenient and allow for light, slim camera designs, but if your built-in battery goes flat away from home, you're stuck. Even if you have somewhere to plug it in, you have to wait for it to charge. With AA batteries, you can carry a spare set in your pocket, buy emergency replacements almost anywhere and switch to fresh batteries in seconds.

Your J28 should have a replacement battery. You can pick them up on ebay for around £5 each, and are very thin so you could carry a few around with you.

I wouldn't really want to be looking for a compact that takes AAs - it wouldn't be as 'compact' as I'd like. The S5700 isn't exactly pocket material, and takes 4 AAs (although it is a cracking camera - I've got one myself).

I picked up a mint Fuji J37 (12.2Mp) for £23 in the PC World Clearance store. If you've got one nearby I recommend taking a look, they usually have a tonne of open-box stock lying around.

I'll be giving my J28 to my daughter for when she goes away to uni this autumn, so a spare battery would be useful to her. Thanks for the pointer. :)

One reason I love my S5700 is the mode dial; worth spending a few extra pounds for IMHO as it means no scrolling though menus to find the setting you want. I've just bought myself a Finepix F70 EXR (seeing as the J28 is off to uni) partly on the strength of this feature. For some reason, the F70 EXR has got a bespoke battery but you have to take it out to charge it, which seems a bit of a retrograde step. Cracking reviews and a great deal via HDUK, though. :)

if your looking for a good camera Fuji have a load of cheap reconditioned ones on their website...well worth a look for a bargain price....x

Got one for the MIL, she's so old that all she can cope with is to point and click. This is just right for her.
