this was in the sainsburys store in camberley watchmoor park if it helps

Corking deal. Heat from me.

Great if you're after a camera for that budget.
Personally I would want to get one with a rechargeable battery. I know you can buy rechargeable aa batteries but it's not the same as a proper one.

How odd. I (and many others) would consider this a great advantage.

My thoughts when this was asked last week:-

It's 25 years since I did much gig photography but back then the main challenges ( other than not getting thrown out for using a camera) were getting right to the front so you can get photos without bits of other people in, and being able to take photos while all around you are jumping up and down / bumping into you etc. - although this does depend on the type of gig I suppose.

My eldest daughter has taken some reasonable gig photos just using my little Pentax compact, by being right at the front and choosing her moment. So it is possible even with a basic compact.

In an ideal world if I wad doing it now I'd want a DSLR, largely due to the very high contrast of gig lighting., and the fast autofocus of most DSLRs.

Having said that if I had to get a compact I'd be looking for the following features:-

spot metering
fast focus
fast exposure bracketing and 'frame' rate
tilltable display so the camera can be used overhead.
low sensor noise

I'm not sure if there's a compact that'll do all of that.

Me too, but this is almost as tedious as the endless cheap HDMI cables bunfight. :whistling:

I'd rather use cheap AA rechargeables I can also use in other stuff than an expensive custom lithium one I can't use in anything else. some people disagree.

I guess everyone is different.

Cracking deal for this product.

Yeah, rechargeables like the Ac tiveCharge ones that stay charged whilst others drain,
Plus if they did die whilst I was away from home, I could always buy some AA from a Petrol Station or Supermarket if I needed.

Never understood why people like Li-Ion so much.

Maybe okay but,
for gigs, your gonna wanna ideally use Shutter Priority, Program Mode or Manual Mode (which this camera doesn't seem to have)
([URL="DigiCam Modes"]http://digital-photography-school.com/digital-camera-modes[/URL])

You'll wanna use around ISO 200-800,
somewhere faster than 1sec but still long maybe 1/6-1/80 without flash (depending on lighting and how much movement on stage)

One of mine at a The Mars Volta show (Link also shows what settings i used)
http:[email protected]/2179204002/meta/
Iso 200 and Shutter Speed of 1/15

Li-ion can be made much smaller and lighter than NiMh for a given charge capacity, which is good from a 'pocketability' point of view, but IMHO it is possible to make a camera too small and light, I find it easier to hold a slightly bigger, heavier camera steady. Maybe that's just years of using old school film SLRs & compacts.

I got one of these last year from Play.com when it was 59.99 (with free 1GB SD card). Good little camera. It's a bit slow between shots and some shutter lag but not really a problem. One thing I would say is you MUST use NiMH batteries e.g. rechargeables as normal alkaline batteries like Duracell plus don't work as they aren't powerful enough.
suspended#15
bought this camera for £60 around 1yr ago, its very nice, it also does 848x480 (16:9) videos which is much better than all cameras other than those expensive ones that can do 1280x720 (720p).
#16
How does this camera compare the Fuji deal (@ Tesco) that was posted the other day?
#17
The Panasonic LS-80 also seems to have image stabilisation not mentioned in the post.
The Leica lens is a great plus and the ability to trade off number of pixels for extra optical zoom
is very useful since most of us will either never print photos or only postcard size & then 8 mpx is a waste.
This little camera also has autofocus assist which is not always available on cheaper cameras and which is essential for low light.

The last thing I need is another digital camera, but it IS very tempting.

Good call!, I hadn't noticed that this has proper optical image stabilisation, not just a program shift feature like most 'stabilisation' features on sub 100 quid cameras, a definite plus IMHO.
