As well as the 500 bonus points you've listed you'd also pick up a fiver's worth of points via 'normal' advantage card use, therefore a tenner in Boots' 'cashback' & go via Quidco for 3.5% (another £4.38 back via Qiudco) so almost 15 quid off the title price if you use both these reward schemes on an already good price!!!

Nice work Cat.

Tempted but can't use get another 500 points free (as used already!!)

Nice find Cat

Have you used TJAF57 valid until 17/7/07 = 750 points ?

Nice piece of kit for the price

Oh I'm so tempted, any clue how long they take to deliver from Boots?

What media do you actually record onto with this camera?

Thanks for the replies all

Here's the link to the MV890 on the canon website if you need further information:


it uses miniDV tape - I have one of these and would recommend - the only downside is that it records the noise of the camera recording (I'm sure there's a name for this) and easily heard during play back, but otherwise brilliant for the price.

would have bought if it had dv IN

Thanks Dromore :thumbsup:

I have one of these and paid £279.00 for it just 9 months ago. I would not hesitate to recommend it, for this price you will not find a better video camera.


Its out of stock :x

Out of stock now.:-(


It states stock coming soon


It states stock coming soon

Which is the same as being out of stock.. ;-)


You dont say.......

Sometimes when these offers come up it is along the lines of 'when its gone its gone'. My point being that this looks like an ongoing offer.


Bad news.... just spoken to Boots and the camcorder is discontinued and they will not have no more delivered :-(

Deal was good while it lasted but out of stock within 2 hours of posting :x
