I got my sister one of these for her birthday, it said red, but was PINK!
Maybe I was just unlucky, but I'd open the box before leaving the store if you want a red camera.
Anyway, it takes good photo's & my sister likes it, so voted hot

when u type this into google some of the reviews say its a bit plasticky and not very good build quality

amazing camera i got it around September when they had it as this price (before putting it back up) takes nice pics but eats batteries so get some good rechargeable ones to go with it :P

Its a bit huge!. Seems to be that price most places Jessops etc.

it is under £50 at jessops, gets good reviews but its one ugly looking camera !

I bought one when it was posted last time. Can't say enough good things about it.

A very good camera, takes good pics + video, it's fast to operate, has a great screen. There is a great auto mode so you can just hand it to anybody or put it into manual if you like to fine tune things and the face recognition is very smart. The only possible thing I could complain about is that there is no viewfinder, you have to use the screen to compose your photo.

I'm not easily pleased when it comes to cameras (my other camera is a Nikon D200 SLR) but I've been really impressed by this. Don't be pushed into buying one with 10 or 12 mega pixels that costs loads more. The sensors on these point and shoots are so small that you just don't get the extra quality, this camera is good for prints of A3 size.

Yes it is ugly though. I got the one in blue which seems to attract the kids attention which is always a good thing, so maybe pink would be even better. Just don't whip it out when you're out with the lads. If you want something smaller with the same quality you'll have to pay over £100 for the Ixus.

The red one has better reviews versus the green one on Argos. Lol.

Bought my daughter this camera after plenty of research. Steves digi cams and Which rate it very highly.


My daughter bought this from Argos at this price a few weeks ago with her xmas money. Superb camera for the money, you`d be hard pushed to find better for the same price, amazing VFM!


nice find.

It is a chunky monkey and has been this price for ages
