Great price and good review from whatdigitalcamera :thumbsup:

Unbelievable deal, this is gonna get hot!

nice find mate - just ordered one. heat added.

been looking for a cheapish digital camera for my mum....looking good!
Thanks op:thumbsup:

Hot. I'm on my third Canon Powershot. Dropped the first one (smashed), gave the next one to my wife and upgraded to a Powershot A640. All great little cameras that give all round good performance. Excellent battery life as well which can't be said for most other makes. Buy it!

Bargain, my boy has been begging for a proper camera for his birthday, didn't really want to waste big bucks on one but this is ideal - and he insisted on a red one too. Bonus.

Is this camera model newer/better quality than the a480?

Is this camera model newer/better quality than the a480?



The A490 and A495 are the new versions of the A480 and the A495 just has a couple of features the A490 doesn't i.e. "The PowerShot A495 has exactly the same features with the A490 except the Face Detection Self-Timer feature which only available in A495. This feature allows the user to set up the camera for a group portrait shot, then join the group before the camera will capture an image."

"Unlike the A480, the buttons don't feel cheap and are clearly marked in white on black. In fact, the overall build seems improved. Plus, Canon kept the controls straightforward and simple, and the menu systems are likewise uncomplicated. "

Basically, get this! :-)
.

I assume this is AA powered rather than rechargeable Li-ion (not stated in spec on link)? Before people jump on me like a ton of bricks I'm just pointing it out for those who may care.

Still a fab deal at this price though. Hot.

Looks good and was gonna buy until I found out it takes AA batteries. Always puts me off as end up spending a fortune on batts. Personally think it's worth spending a bit more for one with lithion ion recharable battery in.
Good price tho. Heat added.

If this had a li-on battery people would be complaining and saying they would buy it if it was AA battery powered, lol. Seems to be one of those things that divides people.

Anyone kind enough to PM me a Mcdonalds £2 voucher please ? i'll give some rep to say thanks

bo9dster007, u never heard of rechargable AA batteries? u buy rechargable batteries,u put them in a charger,wait few hours and thay like new again its the newest NASA technology lol

do i really need a new camera get a grip bargaintastic dont do anything stupid. Remember your new leaf buy what you need not whats just too good to turn down!

Voted Hot from me! :thumbsup:

Cannot process to check out...
"We are currently performing essential overnight maintenance. Sorry for the inconvenience."

I think the system made a mistake when pricing that camera, and I guess the price will go up to £99.99 tomorow morning...
whatever, I'll try to check out in the morning if it's still £49.99~

Heat added, thank u

Batteries = crap.

Overnight maintenance nonsense for me too. Great price though.

The site works now. Managed to get my order in. Thanks for the posting. Heat and rep added

Ordered Thanks!

Spend a few quid on a set of Eneloop rechargeables. Excellent battery life, cheap to run, and if you're ever caught with flat batteries, you can buy some from a corner shop unlike a camera with li ion batteries.

Better still, buy the 7 Dayshop.com "Good 2 Go" 7dayshop.com/cat…341
(Same technology for £4.29 or less for 4, they are even cheaper @ £3.99 from their Amazon Marketplace shop: amazon.co.uk/7da…-38 !) and forget all about disposables altogether as they HOLD the charge just like disposables. Buy a LOT more than one set, and use them for everything, if you haven't used this type before, they are NOTHING like the standard type. If you use them for everything, then you ALWAYS have some, and you ill save a true fortune over disposables.

Use them in my Fuji Bridge camera, a friend uses them in his A480, and they just work. Leave the camera sitting around for a couple of months (as I tend to! :whistling:) and they STILL work - mine hasn't taken more than 10 to 15 shots in the last 4 months or so since they were recharged, yet just to check, they are working fine this morning as I write this!

good deal

Excellent deal - got this for £65 from Argos a couple of weeks ago and thought that was a bargain.

Does all the stuff very well. Only complaints I read in reviews is that it doesn't do hi def movies, but don't think you'd really expect it to.

One thing I have found is that it's so small some of the controls can be a bit fiddly - e.g. the zoom is controlled by the button on the top right of the back of the camera and is a bit awkward when you're holding the camera for a shot, but that's nit picking...

No it doesn't still £49.99

To late again. £89.99

Showing at £89.99 now.

I brought this last night. If it was a pricing mistake by Play, will they still sell at the agreed price?

booooo
Price up to £89.99 im always too late.

Booo I almost bought this before I left the house, but didn't have time. This would be perfect as a present but I missed it! Dammit!

Not sure if Play will honour this mis-price, anyone have any experience of this?

Oh yes it did !

Lol...Now gone up again to £99.99 :-D

They didn't honour the price for the 550D or 50D which they sold for a reduced price a few days ago, so sadly I can't see them honouring this :x
