Seems like a good deal, currently round the £125 mark on Amazon without the extended warranty Free delivery too + quidco / topcashback Good reviews on Amazon

Price looks good. Not sure whether to go for this. I'm looking for something cheap but decent for quick point and shoot pictures on Holiday.

Has anyone had any bad experiences with this particular camera?

Got this a few months ago for ~£130 so this seems a good price.

Great bit of kit for the money, the baby monitor feature is worth its weight in gold! We now use this instead of the video monitor we got from Argos for a similar price.

Good price for this lens, £15+ more expensive elsewhere. Going for around £150-160 second hand on ebay Have used Fotosense in the past with no problems! Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 … Read more

I've owned this lens and the OS (Optical Stabilizer) version. The OS isn't the only difference between the two lenses. The build quality of the OS version is far superior.

To be honest, the non OS lens is only any use on Sony cameras that have built in image stabilization. Without it you can barely take photos at full zoom without a tripod.

MrsH comment that the OS version is very soft is a tad unfair. It isn't the sharpest of lenses but for 99% of people it's perfect. Save your money for that, the 18-250mm OS version or the Nikon 18-200mm VR. All can be had for between £180 and £350 on eBay.

I went for the OS version and it's been great as a walk around lens for me on my travels. For those people who will no doubt moan about the IQ of this and similar "superzoom" lenses, maybe they should think about the target market. Not all of us can afford L series lenses, nor would want to lug around the sheer weight of the glass needed to cover to focal length of this lens. It's heat from me though I'd certainly recommend the OS version over this one - I had some friends who's OS version got damaged when they were traveling and they replaced it with the cheaper non-OS and were rather disappointed.

I have this lens, it's a good walkaround lens as it offers a good range and produces some quite decent results. Used it at Notting Hill about 2 years ago with my old 350D and got some good pics:

Agreed not the best lens in the world, but for a good cheap all rounder can't go wrong!

It's a good price, but it's a very average lens. I have just returned the Sigma 18-200 I had with the added Optical Stabiliser. The focus was still very soft.

Only downside is that I have been freezing my ass off trying to test is outside



Glad you like it! Looks like I dithered too long and they're gone now. I figured that'd probably be the case. Still, my current plan is to pick up a cheaper Nissin Di622 Mk II for about £125, and add a couple of manual Yongnuo YN460 Mk IIs and some cheapo radio triggers if I want to play with off-camera flash/multiple lighting sources.

Thinking about it, CLS with AWS is probably just an expensive pipe-dream for me, along with all the exotic glass out there! :-)

Can imagine :-) I was torn between this and Speedlite 580 EX II but I had about £100 price difference to justify so for me it was somewhat easier... for you the margin is so tiny. I guess it is about power vs. peace of mind (you do get that by sticking to OEM, I must admit)

This strikes me as a fab deal, but the launch of Nikon's SB-700 is confusing my decision. The 700 is less powerful, but strikes me as a slicker solution. If the street price is right (say, £230-£250, rather than the £290 it's mostly being advertised for so far - only £20-30 shy of the price of the SB-900), then it strikes me as a better solution.

Decisions, decisions.

Can anyone say how this compares in use with the Di866?



Nissin seems to have under performance issues, though I have never used it personally. Never had issues with Metz though.

Here is the difference between claimed and measured guide number of Nissin (numbers in brackets are claimed)

* 18 mm: 20 (with diffuser panel).
* 24 mm: 27 [31] EV -0.4.
* 35 mm: 34 [40] EV -0.4.
* 50 mm: 37 [46] EV -0.6.

The TZ10 seems to have more features than just an extra GPS (which you can switch, so I've heart). I'm not a Panasonic fan myself but I like to keep up-to-date with whats on the market. When I compare between the higher end Panasonic models, the TZ10 seems to come out best.

This link was very timely for me as I was looking for such a bag.

ISTR that Jacobs sell the Altus 120 in-store for this price too.

Great price but mind this review from Amazon

"This Lowepro case is well made and it is ideal as a camera bag, just not a DSLR as it is too small. To accommodate a DSLR (I have a Canon 40D with EF S 17-85mm lens) I have to take the lens off the body to be able to store both in the bag. The body with lens attached will NOT fit. This is a real PITA. Who wants to keep removing/attaching the lens every time you put the camera in or take it out the bag?"

What a dumb price for a bag!


this coming from someone whos posted a car on for £60000!!!! lol

Laptop bags and Digital camera bags, you get what you pay for. This isn't high fashion, it's functional. Go and feel one in a shop and you wll understand what a quality bag feels like.


These are better quality than Samsonite and Lowepro, just to give you some idea, and those two aren't cheap either.

I paid less for my laptop than the list price of this bag! I hope it would be well made but I just can't see that any bag can be worth 63 quid. If it's the image you're after I think most people won't know what it is and the rest will think 'mug'. I can't believe you actually bought one!

Normally 80 quid, don't get fooled by RRP.

Sorry, I'm not trying to be destructive, it's just that ridiculously expensive goods don't really work on a deals site, even if they are reduced. The excesses of the last few years are coming to a rapid end in our new economic circumstances and it's not all bad.

Crumpler bags all have silly names, it's a refreshing change. And the bags themselves are the most luxurious consturction. Made entirely from thick weave and heavily padded materials, quad stiched, stiching protection, soft insides they really are worth the premium prices (after a HDUK discount of course ) .

Unlike say a designer handbag, these are expensive because they are using a lot of quality raw materials to put them together.
