Thanks for posting, price added to title

Has poor reviews, and ignore the inflated rrsp .. £89 is around what it should cost.

If I needed one I would buy one of these or one from the psnasonic tz range

I see they have gone for a propitiatory battery now.

You can get a Cannon referb 150 or 130 here for 49.99

What's wrong with it exactly? Any alternative suggestions?

Agreed, from the reviews it seems okay.. and looks really decent for the price at Argos

I picked up the Nikon the other week for 79 from Argos on offer and its not bad at all .I thought about this camera but went for the Nikon I'm glad I did

Rather big for what it is but quite a lot of camera for the money (ignore ridiculous rrp!).

Picked one up yesterday, actually really good for the price! Ignore the poor reviews.

... Ignore the poor reviews.



At your peril!

It's not awful but why should anyone take your word over professional reviewers? Ninety quid gives you a lot of choice in cameras these days.

Poor. There are much better out there for the same price.

Shame they went for proprietary batteries - am looking for an upgrade for my SX100IS, but got used to the benefits of using rechargeable AA batteries.

This has been reposted twice, and they both got more heat. So have some heat. This doesn't have a viewfinder, but it seems like good value for money. Those saying "you can get better for the same price" are unhelpful - if true then provide links rather than just sniping.
