Was searching for a good brand, reasonably priced digi camera for my hols, with HD video.

I found this, and the reviews look promising. Comes in black, red or silver. Personally, I quite like the red.

Heres the good bit:

Panasonic DMC-FP8 Compact Digital Camera FP8 - 28mm Wide-angle 4.6x Optical Zoom Futuristic All-Round Flat Design Body Built of high-quality aluminium, the DMC-FP8's flat body provides an attractive design for the camera's rear surface. A cool hairline panel in the center of the camera adds an exquisite accent for a striking overall appearance. The blue LED cursor button also adds an elegant brilliance to the design each time they are pressed. Beautiful when carrying about and shooting, the DMC-FP8 is a stunning all-round camera for users who are particular about both image quality and camera design. POWER O.I.S. is about twice as effective as MEGA O.I.S. at reducing low-frequency vibration-caused blur when pressing the shutter button or shooting with a slow shutter speed. So you can take beautiful night shots without blurring. Activating POWER O.I.S., Intelligent ISO Control, Face Detection AF/AE with Face Recognition, Intelligent Scene Selector, Intelligent Exposure and AF Tracking, the camera does all the work in the iA Mode. Face Recognition function recognizes registered persons' faces and optimizes the focus and exposure settings. The DMC-FP8 features a 28mm wide-angle 4.6x optional zoom f/3.3-5.9 LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens (35mm equivalent: 28-128mm). This lens system features the folded optics technology realized by the inclusion of a prism. It comprises 10 elements in 8 groups, with 1 ED lens and 5 aspherical lenses / 6 aspherical surfaces to achieve high optical performance while maintaining compactness. Furthermore, in 3-megapixel resolution, the Extra Optical Zoom function provides additional magnification, extending the zoom power to 9.1x (35mm equivalent: 252mm). To realize the ultra high-speed AF, a number of re-engineering and improvements are made including the adaptation of a higher-speed actuator, the optimization of algorithms and the parallelization of software processing element. The result is ultra high speed yet accurate AF performance for users to enjoy the airy shooting that has experienced never before. Panasonic also replaced its linear program processing with parallel processing to achieve an ultra high-speed start-up of approx. 0.95 seconds. The DMC-FP8 can record motion pictures in high-definition (1,280 x 720 pixels at 30 fps in Motion JPEG format). The pixel mixed readout method enables bright motion-picture recording even in low-light settings. It also lets you use zooming when taking motion pictures. With HD component output capability, you can enjoy watching HD motion pictures in stunning HD quality taken by your DMC-FP8 by simply connecting the camera to an HDTV via an optional component cable DMW-HDC2.

#3
This website isn't Panasonics own webstore BTW
#4
The deal looks attractive. But do i trust this website?
#5
Odd it dosent have a lens cover
#6
Good find, anyone used the site before? They've got stores and a phone number so worth calling up before buying perhaps!
#7
£130 at Play so not a massive massive reduction (and so maybe not a misprice?) - good deal although only 13 in stock so mayb worth the gamble

Hi
I am looking for a wide angle compact digi camer. and and was looking at the Samsung wb500 and the Panasonic T27. Is this camera in the offer worth considering against the two I have mentioned?
#9
Personally I believe its a misprice probably mean't to be £199.99

This is a genuine site (I am responsible for it) and we have not mis-priced the item (although occasionally we do mis-price items). We are part of the Panasonic Store network (formerly, [email protected]) and you can verify this by going to the official Panasonic site.

Believe me, this is a great bargain.

Apologies if I happen to post this information twice.

OK, I phoned up the Dorchester store.

Salesman first said the price was £144 and could not even told me the correct website address. I told him I got this number from the website and the price is £99. He said he'll check and confirmed the sale price and the correct website address.

So genuine website

Ordered as it's perfect for the handbag.
#12
I really wanna buy this camera. but by seeing ppl coment abt the website, i am not feeling comfortable now. Will anyone confirm tht this isn't a dodgy website. Thanks
#13
How on earth can anyone think that website looks dodgy. Seems a very good deal for a good, but not great pocket camera. HD video probably best feature for the price.
#14
As I said I phoned to confirm store and price and I HAVE ordered the camera. Email received with the store located here:

Why if it wasn't a mis-price?

Hi BigAde,

The decision was not mine (I am only the guy responsible for the site) but I'm sure it reflects the incredible demand for the camera.

Fair enough, and thanks for taking the time to post. I'm just a little peeved that this came as I made up my mind to place an order, so I missed out.

Got it. Very snappy performance and build quality. Haven't looked at the pictures on PC yet.

Small enough to fit in my Lowepro D-Res 4M (which i bought on amazon when they were £ 2 with free delivery)
