" if you ignore the name they are quite a good little camera."

NO THEY'RE NOT!

You can get a decent, basic camera for around this price. Possibly the worst camera thread in months!

PS Your English isn't much better either.

Lol I'm not bossyboots. I stand by what I say I'm not a name snob like some on here and to be honest people should check out the original price £159.99. Buying this from Argos clearance saves you £114 off the original rrp

The whole 14mp thing is a bit of a joke/marketing ploy tbh. If a camera is of poor build quality with crappy lens and cheap components etc then it'll take rubbish photos whether it's 3mp or 300mp. This is a poor quality camera and not really worth more than £45 to begin with. With a bit of research you can find a much better camera for less. Just saying.

was good for £46 but now same price as panasonic

14Mp is a negative - especially on a poor camera. It's a marketing ploy to catch the ignorant. You simply don't need 14Mp and it'll just create noise (grainy pictures in low light) in a compact. Argos original price is laughable as always. Anyone who paid £160 for this really needs their head examining - at that price you can get some really good kit several levels above this.

Alba is an 'own brand' label stuck on a piece of anonymous tat from a Chinese factory. I'm not a brand snob where it doesn't matter but on something like a camera you need to buy a reputable brand that uses decent components throughout (notably the lens). Decent little Fuji compacts regularly come along at this sort of price, though you may have to forgo the rechargeable battery at that level.

Sometimes you have to accept that a few knocks on HUKD are actually sound advice and stop trying to push water up hill!
