12 megapixel, 4x optical zoom and a decent brand. Seems pretty good for a point n shoot compact to me. There's stock in a few stores (I've just reserved one in Airdrie - none nearer Glasgow but several in Edinburgh & Livingston) and it's available for home delivery (after Christmas).

What's wrong with it, and what should I buy as a convenient point n shoot for under £80?

for another £3 you can get a samsung ES75 which is a better buy than this.

Hmm, I already have a Samsung digital camera. The quality's OK for the money but it isn't well built and eats batteries - I'm not keen to buy another. Whereas I've owned several (admittedly 35mm) Canons and all were great.

The 75es is a far newer model. Also this deal was already posted 6 days ago.

if its anything like the a3100 it will be rubbish.

amazingly rubbish picture quality for a 12Mp camera, I would compare the quality to that of a 2 or 3 megapixel camera.

i would find some reviews and sample shots of this camera before purchasing.

This doesn't tale AAA batteries. It takes a Li-ion. I bought a high capacity 850mAh spare for £2.43 inc. delivery.

That's a shame. I prefer standard AA or AAA rechargeables for the sheer convenience they provide - especially when travelling abroad when all my rechargeables for various devices can be handled by just one car recharger.

Ah, but perhaps you think a bespoke battery pack for each device to be a plus-point in some strange way.

No. These batteries are tiny and hardly a hassle to carry. At £2.43 you can buy a few & have them pre charged. These are smaller than a load of multiple batteries. I suppose your mobile phone takes 3 AAA/AA batteries as well

I'd rather stick one spare set of rechargeable AA and of AAA batteries (N.B. not "a load of multiple batteries") in my pocket with one mains/car charger in my cabin luggage for use in my various gadgets. That's my stated preference and even your attempt to use a disparaging tone when insisting that your opinion is necessarily the only correct way to view this matter doesn't alter my preference. You introduced this camera's use of a bespoke battery as if that were a superior attribute but have been unable to explain why that is so and have merely stated that you need to carry a dedicated spare battery (or even "a load of batteries") just for this one device.

FYI, I no longer have the Motorola c520 which had the added virtue of being able to be powered by (readily available) AA batteries if required but my current handset is low-drain (unlike a camera) and doesn't need a dedicated charger or a standby battery so there are no extras to carry or service.
