​you are wrong
Looking at the reviews on the Argos web site - very impressed, think I'll order one for my son who is to Africa soon. For £79 it's a bargain
5% back with quidco too
Bear in mind this is not a DSLR camera.
Great price for what it is though. Heat given.

Out of stock in the nearest 5 stores.

These should never be called bridge cameras.

Bridge cameras are or were the cameras with all the manual options that dslr offers and the only difference was that you can't change the lens.

These are mega zoom point and shoot with electronic zoom.

Dslr offers electronic focuing that you can over ride but zoom is always manual, just more control.

I hope this little information helps someone as I have made mistakes.

oh thanks OP heat added for price, it is good looking camera and will surely give people good photos.

My comments were regarding the word bridge used wrongly these days.
If it helps anyone they have stock in Argos at Bishop Auckland, Consett and Darlington. Nice price. Good find OP
Thx op

Just ordered

Wanted a fishing camera and this is perfect.

He might not thank you for having to lug this around Africa when you can get a pocketable compact with 30x zoom (and viewfinder) - albeit more expensive.
Not in stock near me also not available for delivery ....shame
Loads in Newcastle. However, not the camera that I am looking for.

In stock at Darlington in Black and Red.
The nearest competition is the Nikon L340 for £100.
Just bought this to upgrade from a LUMIX DMC-FX37. Hmm think the lumix is better, this has a lot of noise. See how it goes with some adjustments.
