Just been with my mate and we flew his Phantom 3. Unreal.
​I just got mine a few weeks ago and love it, the shortfall being the price of the batteries so going to order a few more to keep me in the air longer, hopefully I can learn the ropes a bit quicker then. They're a great bit of kit though, amazing when you see what they're capable of in the hands of more capable pilots than me.
Enjoy it! Such an awesome gadget to have. It blew my mind a little bit.

No lens had IS before the mid 1990's - are they no good? This lens is only f2 and has no IS:

50mm 1.8 isnt decent

This is the STM model, with better build quality better focussing and some improvement to optical performance too. And it still runs for under £100. This pretty much addressed everything people disliked about the "plastic fantastic" mk2 and they kept the price down in the double digits, all things considered it's a very decent lens.
50mm 1.8 isnt decent
I'd spend the little extra and get the 750d with 18-55 STM lens. Much better camera and brilliant kit lens that has IS.

This is the best price I've seen for this camera. You pay £699 and claim back £100 from Panasonic before 09/1/2017. John Lewis have it at £729 so would presumably price match it

Good price. I have the twin lens kit. The pancake gets no use at all as I have a prime attached mostly and I'm not a fan of electrionic zoom. The 40-150mm gets quite a lot of use and I've taken some excellent portraits with it.
Was it the "EZ" lens you got with yours or the "II R" one?
must have been the EZ as the r is no pancake
seems to be in currys shots also
Yep, its difficult to see from the Jessops pics which lens it is - hoping for the EZ to keep it all as small as possible..

the deal is still on 549, but I am seeing no extra battery in the basket; unless 549 is the regular price and the offer was a battery which has now gone (and wasnt even described in the first place).


​the extra battery deal has now gone, I'm awaiting stock of this item from jessops. it's on back order but they said their not promising this item back in stock (what the customer service said, I'm awaiting a phone call back to confirm from purchasing department)

The deal is still on for the drone at £549 but no extra battery.

I put in description and title it comes with extra battery, but now this deal has expired (the deal for the extra battery)

​you can spend as little as £5 to extend the range on this model, if you want to add even more range you can buy the ARGtek range booster for £45 which can take it up to 1200mtrs on average.

At the end of the day if you are looking for a good quality video drone and not wanting to go out of sight with the drone then this is the best model in my opinion

52mm UV + Circular Polariser filter, £9.97 @ Jessops, save £33.01

Probably not useful to most but a bargain to get these two filters for such a cheap price. Jessop sell the UV for £19.99 and the CP for £22.99, so a saving of £33.01

own brand?
Meh you're better off buying a used Hoya Circular polarizer lens on ebay - usually less than 10 and the optical clarity is excellent without much dimming
as for the UV filter, these are useless in modern DSLRs, and only serve as a lens protector
yes own brand - speaking from personal experience? as previous comments have said they are fine

Jessops are being sneaky right now. I noticed the Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM C Lens for Canon is now £739, which they say is down from £849. It has never been £849 as far as i know, and i've been keeping tabs on this lens for several months now. Last week this lens was £734 in almost every place on the internet, so they are being dishonest. Trying to get people to buy by misleading them into thinking they are getting a bargain.
jessops usually sell this pack for 15quid according to them so maybe slightly different to individuals?

Still a good deal. Cheapest I could see the K-50 + 18-55mm for is £379, so only £111 for the 55-300mm lens.
Talk about rising inflation, this was £399 just six months ago.

So is this the camera to buy for portability and IQ or is there better for the money? I want to buy once and keep a long time.
(Warning: Long post incoming)
For a long term investment around the £500 mark (with an initial spend of up to £600), there are four mirrorless cameras I would be looking at:
*Fujifilm X-T10 with 16-50mm lens for £468 (£548 minus £80 cashback)
*Olympus OM-D E-M10 II with 14-42mm & 40-150mm lenses for £494 (£569 minus £75 cashback)
*Panasonic GX80 with 12-32mm lens for £449 (£549 minus £100 cashback)
*Sony A6000 with 16-50mm lens for £499 (no current cashback offer)
All four have their own advantages and disadvantages. Firstly to cover IQ and portability you've asked about specifically- The Fuji and Sony have an image quality edge, but all four are excellent and, as a new photographer, you will be a larger bottleneck on image quality than your camera will be! For portability, click here for a size comparison of all four models. They're all quite similar, with the Sony and Panasonic being a bit thicker with their protruding grip/viewfinder, with the Olympus and Fuji are taller with their viewfinder humps. They're also a very similar weight (san-lens), with the Sony, Fuji and Olympus all weighing between 380g and 391g, with the Panasonic only a bit heavier at 427g.
So with those two factors covered, as a long term purchase there are other things to consider;
*Lenses: Panasonic and Olympus both use the same lens mount and can freely use lenses made by each other, and third part lenses will obviously work for both cameras too. This means a lot of variety and generally quite affordable prices. Sony and Fuji use their own lens mounts, and the options available are less diverse and often a bit more expensive. The Olympus also gets a big value bump in that it comes with a telephoto lens at the same price that these other cameras only have the kit zoom lens.
*Autofocus and continuous shooting: All four cameras have excellent autofocus for static shots, to the point where it's not really an issue I would make a choice on. However when it comes to subject tracking, the A6000 remains uncontested as the best mirrorless camera at this price point for focussing on moving subjects (it also does it with a continuous shooting rate of up to 11fps, the fastest of all four cameras). The Panasonic takes second place, while the Fuji and Olympus struggle in this regard (all three of these cameras shoot at between 6fps and 8fps in continuous mode, which is very respectful but nothing close to the Sony)
*Image stabilisation: Both the Panasonic and Olympus cameras have image stabilisation within the camera body, essentially turning any lens into an image stabilised one and making it easier to get sharp shots at slower shutter speeds. It also means lenses can be smaller and lighter when IS doesn't need to be built in. The Sony and Fuji do not have this feature in-body and it must instead be built into the lenses.
*Video quality: The Sony produces the best 1080p video of the bunch, while the Panasonic also has great video quality, can shoot all the way up to 4K, and the in-body image stabilisation means you can get smoother video regardless of the lens you use. Neither the Fuji or Olympus are really worth considering if video is a big priority, on account of poor subject tracking and a lack of video-oriented features.
*Viewfinder: All four cameras feature an electronic viewfinder of a good quality. All are perfectly usable, but in order of quality they go Fuji>Olympus>Panasonic/Sony.
*Styling and ergonomics: Obviously there's a lot of personal preference here, there's the more conservative design and rangefinder-style Sony and Panasonic versus the retro inspired SLR-style Fuji and Olympus. Two big considerations here though are the viewfinder placement and grip- the viewfinder of the Panasonic and Sony are placed near the left hand side of the camera, which is fine for most people but can make it awkward for people with a dominant left eye as you have to hold the camera across your face, while the centred viewfinders of the Olympus and Fuji are better in this regard. The grip also plays a big part for some people, with the small "finger holds" of the Fuji, Panasonic and Olympus being less suited to people with larger hands than the more robust grip of the A6000.
*JPEG image quality: This is not something normally mentioned in comparing high end cameras, as one of the big draws of these cameras is the editing and tweaking they allow you to do with images by shooting RAW mode. However Fuji have found a niche for themselves with their excellent JPEG presets and film simulations, and it deserves a mention here.
So yeah, ramble over. In short, all four are excellent and whatever you buy you will most likely enjoy and be very happy with the results of. However there are a few significant factors that will make some cameras better suited to some people but not others. Want an affordable camera and lens options from day one? The Olympus is a great shout. Want something you can take to sporting events or just for kids running around the garden? The A6000 will keep up with them. Want something stylish and will produce great photos out of the camera without worrying about editing? The Fuji is awesome for that. Want to dabble in videography? The GX80 has you covered the best.
I'm looking at three of these cameras (I'm passing on the Fuji), and that was the best comparison of the trio I've found! Thanks! :) Out of interest, I don't suppose you have an opinion on in-camera image stabilisation vs on-lens stabilisation?

No problem :)

It varies from camera to camera and lens to lens. I would think about the sort of photography you want to do, what lenses are most useful for that, whether or not image stabilisation is a necessity, and then finally to see if each system has lenses that meet your needs within your price range. For example if you're planning to make extensive use of telephoto lenses, image stabilisation is almost universally useful. If you're going to be doing landscapes with your camera sat on top of a tripod, stabilisation is completely unnecessary.

Just ordered this lens today from Calumet. Same deal (£679 / 24 months 0% credit), but also £50 off any accessories purchased with the lens. I didn't use the interest free as I didn't want to risk my cashback, so have seen it track at £17.89. So if you count the £50 of accessories (Canon W-E1 wireless card / camera raincover) and the cashback, in real terms it's costing me £612. Looking forward to playing with it on my new pride and joy (5Dsr).
This lens is my sharpest and best lens. Wonderful lens (on a 5D).

​As much as I love my 14mm Samyang, it's only useful for landscapes & astro with the manual focus. As the 135mm will mainly be for portraits, you'd need a very patient subject..

Canon 50mm f1.8 is a larger aperture, but costs a fraction of this.

This is not the site to ask the question, you'd be better asking on a more specialised forum like Stargazerslounge. I attended a lecture by the guy that runs Binocularsky site a few weeks ago and it's maybe a bit more concise for beginners.

I own 2 pairs of 10 x 50's, one I think are a Bresser pair bought out of Lidl, I also own a pair of Celestron 15 x 70's. All 3 are decent. You get what you pay for but the good news is, optics have improved and prices have dropped in the many years I've been a casual observer. I can recommend the Celestron brand, they are mass producers of decent quality optics but consult the above sites and ask people that know a lot more than me.

Clear skies!

I've said this on many of these cheap telescope thread's that the best telescope you can buy as a beginner is actually a pair of binoculars. They are much more versatile and can be put to other uses besides astronomy. They are great for finding your way about the skies and will show great detail of the Moon and deep sky objects, you may even make out the moons of Jupiter.
If the bins whet your appetite then buy something around 6" (150mm) as a reflector or 4" (100mm) as a refractor.
I've 3 pairs of bins and a 4" refractor but I use the bins far more than my telescope.
which pair would you recommend please?

what foldable model??
The Mavic Pro. From what I've seen it wipes the floor with every drone on the market in it's price bracket at just under a grand, and is probably better than drones 2-3 times it's price. Absolutely stunning performance and video output. This is why there are so many drone price reductions ATM.
Agreed that the mavic is astonishing... i actually have a P3P, mate has a P4, work has an inspire 1 pro with zenmuse and I now have a mavic on order.... however realistically, it has less powerful motors, slower in ATTi, GPS and sports mode, remote is less controllable i.e. such as custom buttons/functions etc, smaller available sensor shows more noise on images and video, especially when zoomed in at max res, variable focus is tricky, very narrow field of view in comparison to fixed cams like P3/P4, no timelapse, hdr or RAW function, can't land it unless on perfectly flat ground (as belly and cam is 11mm high), so you have to catch in the air - and if compared to the inspire (as you have in drones 2-3 times the price), all of the above plus can't change lenses, lesser gimbal, and can't rotate 360, can't dual control, much slower video bitrate, lightbridge 2, m4/3, etc etc...
but has that stopped me buying one?... definitely not. Not having props shown in almost every bit of footage, not having to lug a peli case around for a start will be amazing... holidays abroad, can't wait! A fantastic design - but it's not really supposed to compare to the P4.... or DJI would never sell any ever again!

I'm unsure to get the p4 or mavic . the quality just seems so much better on the phantom 4.

But seeing how people go crazy on anyone in the UK flying a drone over empty land, I guess the mavic would be better as more discreet. But for me the mavic is a big step back in quality.
the 20 pound
gearbest drones be lucky if they stay in air more than ten mins
Resonate
1200 quid for a drone? £20 on gearbest!
Yes, they're exactly the same. exactly the same. The best film makers are all using £20 Gearbest drones and laughing at the idiots paying £1000+ when the results are identical, identical I tells ya.

I doubt it. Unless retailers get themselves in a panic. Phantom 4 still seems to be best for image quality and the Mavic is currenty £400 more than this phantom 3. Gopro karma doesn't seem so hot IMO.
There may not be the massive discounts you are expecting.

Unless you need the specialist video features, I think most people would be best off with the G80. The GH4 is fairly chunky and heavy, the G80 is a bit smaller. Also the G80 has in-body stabilisation, which could be useful. Plus a few other new features, eg focus stacking.
The 12-60mm lens seems to be a pretty good standard lens, and its splashproof. It costs about £300 on its own, so the G80 kit is a good deal.

I personally love the form factor of the GH3/4 it's probably the best camera I've used and the layout of the controls for me is near on perfect. My other half has a Nikon D600, which I find big and unintuitive when it comes to controlling it.

From the looks of what has been unveiled about the upcoming GH5, nothing has been mentioned about in-body stabilisation and the focus seems to be pretty much on video capabilities. With the G80 getting weather sealing and in-body stabilisation it looks to be pretty good upgrade compared to the GH3 and even the GH4.

Found this comparison video on youtube G80/85 vs GH4

The 12-60mm lens seems to be pretty good, weather sealed too, would be a good travel lens when limited on space travelling abroad, (hand luggage only). The grip is just a bonus. Could always sell the grip and lens if not needed too. The new grip seems the have a price of £249 and the cheapest the 12-60mm has been is £269.

Though again I already have the grip for the GH3 which works with the GH4!

Those specs sounds more like the GX80, the G80 has a mic port and is weather sealed.


Sorry chaps, spec are from the GX80. The G80 does look much better, as already said possibly a better bet than the GH4, esp with the kit lens.

GH4 is quite a lot better in many ways than the G80..
Max Shutter Speed - 1/8000s vs 1/4000s (faster shutter speed)
Continuous Shooting - 12.0fps vs 8.0fps (4 fps faster)
Battery Life - 500 shots vs 290 shots (210 more frames with a single charge)
Microphone Port - Yes vs No (High quality audio recording optio)
Headphone Port -Yes vs No (better video control(
Environmental Sealing - Yes vs No (shoot at tough conditions)
Flash Coverage - 17.0m vs 6.0m (11m longer range)
Color Depth - 23.2 vs 22.9 (higher color depth)
Dynamic Range - 12.8 vs 12.6 (higher dynamic range)
Low Light ISO 791 vs 662 (better High ISO performance)
Max Video Resolution - 4096 x 2160 vs 3840 x 2160 (Higher Resolution Video)
Flash Sync Port - Yes vs No (Connect off-camera flash)

Where is that from? Some of it is incorrect - the G80 does have a microphone port, and does have weather sealing.
Yes, the GH4 has better battery life. But the G80 has some sort of "economy mode", which claims up to 900 shots. Its easy to swap to a spare battery anyway.
Most people won't notice the minor differences in shutter speed, frame rate etc.

This is a good tripod, but has been on sale at Jessops for £39.99 (I originally posted this deal), so this is not the best price.

Nice my 290 is too big to haul about very tempted
Had a Manfrotto tripod, rendered useless when the plastic clips that hold the extended legs started snapping, wouldn't mind I'd hardly used it!

​I was going ask what editing software you used then I saw the bit that said you took 5 hours, not sure I have the stamina to do that. I'm less than an hour on Windows movie maker for mine lol.

Great editing though, really enjoyed it.

Yes I agree the laws are getting tight on drones and there is drone haters out there but you can still get some really great shots out there
With all the laws now I don't see the point. Yeah I will just fly my £700 drone in a field away from any points of interest and video the whole thing to show people the grass beneath it. I would get a bit bored I would think

Deal seems to be back on
whilst a good feed with lightbridge would be beneficial I don't think I can justify the extra £150 for advanced.

£150 premium for the advance would be a no brainer. £250 extra would hurt!

thanks. I had been looking at slr hut but wasn't sure about warranty and returns etc. are they based in new york? I was thinking of getting a standard to see if I use it much then upgrading to a 4 if I do. decisions decisions!
SLRHUT are doing the standard for 425, the advanced for 595 and professional for 695, I would go with either the advanced or professional which has lightbridge. The standard is ok but you will wish you went for the next model up
I unfortunately missed out on this deal, but it has made me want to buy one! anyone know of any similar deals or was this just a one off? second hand prices aren't far off new prices, so would prefer to buy new....

This is a good travel camera with great reviews, it produces ok JPEG pictures, however you can also get RAW output that enables proper manipulation with off the peg products.

Basically because they have no idea what a camera is, when it's not connected to a phone that is. I only posted it because I have been looking for one of these for a whole and this is by far the best price I have found. Also the guy in Jessops Manchester was quite superb, pointing out the faults and benefits of this and other cameras.

Same, I've had my eye on one of these for a while since my last camera broke, biding my time until a decent deal came along. And here it is.
