In what way is it a mid point between a compact and a DSLR ?

It's a bridge camera.

Low end bridge cameras aren't really a "bridge" to DSLRs, not in any way that really matters. Yes the form factor is similar, but you're still getting a crummy small sensor, a less-than-stellar lens, and none of the features of manual controls that SLRs have, meaning you're still getting compact camera grade photos (just from much further away).

Note that I'm not saying this is a bad camera, it looks to be a pretty nice deal if a superzoom is what you're looking for. But if you buy into this expecting a move closer to SLR style images, you're going to be disappointed.

​ Actually, the availability of the majority of manual controls is one of the distinguishing features of bridge cameras - or the good ones, anyway.

I ummed and ahhed about this last night after the cheaper one went out of stock. It has all the features that I want in a bridge camera - 1080p video and HDR. Bit the bullet......

Tell us what it's like when you get it.Not the excellent deal of the cheaper one, but still good.

This or the £130 Canon from Argos?

Bridge camera should have manual zoom and manual focus on hardware not software for starters.

That will increase the cost, Fuji used to have Fuji 9600 or something like this that was very popular and that was proper bridge camera not just the casing.

For super zoom that's a great price.

I used to own 18x zoom Fuji camera and it was not good in low light and manual focus was software based, things might have changed.

50x optical? Wow! How do they stabilize the image - me want!

Excessive, there's so much loss of colour fidelity in the image.

Which is inevitable. The point is it can be done, and if you want that level of magnification and accept the drawbacks, then buy it. This is a hot deal for a 50x zoom.

Will do. Ultimately, I can't think of a better camera for under £100 without resorting to the wild west of fleabay.

I have one and it is a great camera, at full zoom you can get some decent quality shots if you are careful and it is generally very easy to use and has great video options as well - the high speed slow motion setting is great for action shots.

Super deal

Quite a lot of camera for the money. Have some heat from me.

There is a pretty decent review here at the £270 full retail price.

I ordered this last night after seeing the deal for the cheaper model. Totally gamble as I have zero idea about camera. Happy to see the comments in this thread. Looking forward to testing it out now tomorrow.

I used to rave about Fuji shop, but after months of hassle with two refurb cameras this year I'd never recommend them again.

If you do buy then pray you won't need to return it for repair!

If you can possibly save the extra try and catch another deal like the recent EOS M at Argos - having bought and used four different bridge cameras within the last year I've finally decided that compact sensors and massive compromised lenses don't give lasting satisfaction

That is due to atmospheric conditions. Why post nonsense if you don't know what you talking about? Zoom onto something nearby and you'll get full colour.
