if anyone has contemplated the 18-105G lens - I highly recommend it. Especially paired with the A6000.
Would agree with the John Lewis score. Go with Wex or Amazon for customer service.
john lewis gets 1.5/10 this site gets 5.7/10 (used to be much lower suspiciously enough)
Mixes reviews for photo sense also.. https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/www.fotosense.co.uk Have only ordered one Grey Import before and that was from DigitalRev, which arrived ok but no UK manufacturer warranty.
Hmmm. Maybe after reading the reviews on Trustpilot, I'll give them a miss. https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/eglobalcentral.co.uk
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.
Didn't rate the one I got with a camera, still sat in the drawer.
You can.get one from ebay for about 5£
Joby not Jody unless its a Chinese rip off.
Have 1 of these for my little LG projector, great for hotel rooms.
Yup, cancelled mine as well. Pricing error by Fotosense so not the op's fault. Would have been a HOT one though!
They cancelled my order too :(
Yeah, my order cancelled too. Deliberate? ..................to get your details? Will be avoiding in the future.
Damn, too good to be true after all. Sorry guys :(
Too late. Not working. :(
I've got one. Great camera, but no touchscreen. And my wife not keen on it. One thing never mentioned its solid as a rock, dropped multiple times on wood floors with lens out - working perfectly. Tough as you like. Voting cold as not that cheap.
Having owned this since late last year, I am still stunned at times as to the breathtaking images this keeps taking. On Auto, it is brilliant.
Voted hot A strap for £40/37, what a bargain! ;)
Forgot to mention (amateur) - TCB of 3.15%, so another £0.86 off this price.
Thank goodness it's bomb-proof. My camera will be my first concern in the event of an IED attack.
****, just bought one of these a week ago. voted hot
same price at currys
Also noticed this camera has a level shot mode, ideal whent taking horizons etc on a sunny day
ive been using the dmc-zs3 for a while now and it still takes amazing pics,even at the zoo today,now with the extra mega pixels and 8x zoom this is on my shopping list

Cheers. Certainly worth waiting. I'll be ordering one as well when its back instock.
Very good price - based in Bolton, so might pay them a visit when I'm up there next... hopefully they will have stock as been after one for a few months now :)
Just rang them up nice enough guys, stock due in late this week.
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:Notting Hill Carnival 259 by nigelwilliams2001, on FlickrFull set here (10 pics):http://www.flickr.com/photos/73643672@N00/sets/72157624866224226/
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.
Soz , I misread your deal , been a long day (_;) Still a great deal though
thanks @ChasingtheLight The price I have mentioned includes the web discount price
Seems a good deal for a decent tripod and head Also if you use code WEB5 you will also another -£3.20 off every little helps (_;)
Yup cold I'm afraid. For this price, you can actually buy the superior Hoya HD UV Filter from Amazon (well from a Marketplace seller there who I've bought from before and has been very reliable).
Selling it for £29.08 here @ Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hoya-77mm-Pro1-Digital-Filter/dp/B000BH5OW6/ref=lh_ni_t
I don't appear to be allowed to post links but camerabox have the same price but with a 5 year warranty at the moment.
I think the park cameras deal is body only. The jacobs camera is with 14mm lens Amazon want 549 for this. Reviews DPreview digitalcamerareview expertreviews
That's body only .. £549 at Park with the 14mm lens.
Maybe worth reading their reviews before buying !
£40 less without the warranty here http://www.parkcameras.com/17634/Panasonic-DMC-GF2-Black-Body.html?gclid=CIbYg5PBpqcCFYFB4Qod1lAqnQ
just brought a sony nex5 slr with 18-55 lens do you thing this bag will be ok for it?? many thanks
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! :-)
By the way, got mine finally. Slightly complicated to operate as there are a myriad of options but the for quality, I just have one word..WOW!! Works fantastically on my 550d. Only downside is that I have been freezing my ass off trying to test is outside
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.
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  EV -0.4. * 35 mm: 34  EV -0.4. * 50 mm: 37  EV -0.6. * 105 mm: 39  EV -1.2.
the tz10 apparently does n`t give as good pix as the old tz7, to much 'noise' apprently.
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.
Nice deal, have some heat. Not sure if to get this or the TZ8 though, the GPS drains battery and not sure if I really need GPS.
This link was very timely for me as I was looking for such a bag. Bearing in mind the comment by rozza38 I went to my Amazon account and managed to save a bit extra - for some reason if ordered direct from fotosense they charge £4 delivery whereas if you order it from them via Amazon you only pay £2.50.
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?"
Put Lowepro in title & it might get some hits
in that post, there is a mention of the £30 refund from fotosense.
What do you mean thanks for posting anyway? You wont get the 30.00 back from amazon, its only in black and no other colours. And they might be grey imports, but I dont know. This is a totaly different deal, but thanks for reminding people they can get for 277.00 black only and no chance of the 30.00 discount
No harm in posting again, but just thought to mention it came around couple of days ago https://www.hotukdeals.com/item/655177/panasonic-tz10-digital-camera-277-d Thanks for posting anyways
answered the phone to me and replied to my emails. Nothing on google apart from the odd rant, but who takes the time to give good feedback.
This deal is burning my eyes 8-)
I wouldn't recommend Fotosense unless they have improved in the last year. took my money for an ' in stock ' item which wasn't. 2 months to get a refund.
just another option, good bag for £34.99 delivered!! http://www.rubooks.co.uk/detail.php?productid=ST04345&proddesc=LowePro+CompuDaypack+(Orange)&supercategory=&branch=&wcategory=&catdesc= was £24.99 when i bought it though + quidco!! Ive got one and everything fits perfect!!
Wrong model dude, mymemory are doing the AW minimus which is smaller for that price. http://www.mymemory.co.uk/search?searchTerm=primus+aw :whistling:
Yeah it was going for around 40 from amazon(that's when I picked up mine) but now they retail at £80 and if your after good camera backpack this one is not a bad choice. My memory are based in Jersey, good luck trying to return something broken. Think how many polar bears this backpack can save :D
Probably people dont understand the cost of good camera bags 9which to be honest are a rip off at full retail cost)
Well spotted! I still think the car's a better deal though (not that I can afford one unfortunately).
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.
