Fantastic camera and not a great deal of knowledge needed. They are big though, I sold mine in favour of a more compact camera. Heat added.

is at £109.50 from dixons where you can also get cashback and i'm sure there is a voucher floating around to reduce even further.

not voting cold as it still is a good deal.;-)

Nice deal, nice camera and nice price....shame about the "4 AA batteries required". Still....its a really good offer. :thumbsup:

This is an excellent camera, unfortunately I bought this on saturday for £114.45...I should have waited! Got it this morning and it is very easy to use, takes excellent pictures and I prefer it to the more compact cameras I have had in the past, it feels more substantial and I would recommend it as think it is a good camera for the price.

shame about the "4 AA batteries required". :



This is the very reason why I would recommend a camera like this. AA batteries are available world wide and you can always use alkalines in an emergency (you would normally use rechargeable of course).

Exactly why I buy Fuji cameras. This one takes SDHC and xD cards, so almost vast memory sizes available with the SDHC at lower cost than xD cards.

I got mine from the Fuji Shop online. Refurb officially, but looks brand new, £86.12 plus £5.99 delivery. There is a 10% off code on the vouchers section here too. All normal accessories and cables are included.

Someone said this camera is large, but its all subjective. Its quite small for what it is, and gives excellent results. I also have a Fuji S7000, and this is a lot smaller. Fuji say it is the worlds smallest 12x optical zoom camera (as at Jan 2008)

Good price for a new camera, but having bought 4 cameras from Fuji direct (all refurbs but like new) I would always save and go down that route. Never had a problem with any of them. Lets face it, theres not much that can go wrong with digi cameras, and any problems will show up in the first few uses.

The only negative side to the Fuji route is the 6 months warranty (upgradeable) and the fact that the cameras come in a box with a 'Refurbished' label. No problem if its for your own use, but some people may be worried about losing face by giving one as a present.

I bought this a few weeks ago at £119.00.

Great camera for the money with superb features, The 4 battery issue isn`t a problem at all. In fact, it`s probably of benefit. I`ve found the battery life to be more than double that of my Olympus.
One reason for this, i suspect , there is an option to view subject matter through the viewfinder tronic) rather than the LCD screen thus saving battery power. A facility lacking in a lot of digital cameras.
I`m delighted with mine

anyone point me in the direction of this 10% discount at Fuji that the person above has mentioend

4 x AA batteries is an advantage. No expensive proprietry battery to replace.
Use Cheap alkalines or rechargeables.

The problem is that reviews are subjective and dependent on peoples personal preferences. I feel that 10/10 for one person is anothers 5/10, it all depends on what you want from the camera. For example features you may never use are irrelevant, so a 10/10 based on someones views of features is of no use.

I was looking at getting the Lumix TX5 but just seeing this i am tempted maybe to change my mind does anyone know the differences between both and what would make the better one. How big is the FinePix S1000fd ??

Great post/review doublekite of the FinePix S1000fd this is what is making me think twice about buying the TZ5

Any advice/veiws would be great

Oh i tried using the code on the Fuji site went through to card details and it's not showing any discount, when does it show?
Thanks

So what in peoples opinion would be a better choice, my partner has the S8000fd which she got as an early xmas present and also she wants me to get one too.

The S8000fd is 8 mega pixel but 18x zoom (which is amazing!)

I'm a bit tempted by this one now as its a little bit cheaper.

Anyone able to clarify if higher mp > zoom ?

I used to think this way about the batteries, but actually proprietary batteries are like a physical DRM, once the run out you have to pay a lot / struggle to find new ones whilst AA is an open format and NiMH rechargeables are great now. Also, if this is anything like the S5700 then those 4 batteries will last a very long time.

Yes indeed, the £3 (inc delivery) it costs me to buy spare proprietary batteries for my Fuji is an absolute fortune :-D

The S1000fd is a budget camera and suffers from a bit of purple fringing, and does not work well with high isos.

The TZ5 costs a hell of a lot more and is just in general a smaller, better quality camera with no budget in it. The lumix series seem to get rave reviews everywhere.

Also i've been looking at the panasonic FZ8. It's as good if not better quality than the TZ5 but nowhere near as compact, and a whole lot cheaper.

problem now - which one of these HUKD deals for a camera is best option for family and xmas/holiday snaps etc???? this fuji one or the ixus one...
hotukdeals.com/ite…ti/
or are the prices about to plummet because of the crunch... decisions decisions...:thinking:

Thankyou very much :thumbsup: Will have a look at the FZ8 .... cheapest i have seen the TZ5 for is £169.99, Will defo look into the Fz8 before i make my final choice... thanks alot for answering my question :-D

I'd say the Canon 960 is quite a bit better in most respects, apart from the zoom range. It has better image quality, ease-of-use & portability to name just a few.

If you need a high-zoom camera, then why not go the whole hog & get a 18x one in the Fuji S8000fd for ~£25 more than this one (or the ]same price refurb). The S8000fd is probably not for beginners though (not so family-friendly), & may need a few manual settings & experimentation to get the best out of it.

I think the main 'negatives' about this camera are: only average to above-average image quality, sluggish performance (slow start-up & shutter-lag), ordinary build quality & lack of image stabilisation.

Have to agree about the 'budget' label & the fact that ISO 200 & above will not produce the best results.

Phil21 is trying to say he'll be carrying his own inexpensive spare proprietary batteries, so won't need to worry about AAs (it's another matter if he loses them, but that's not the point here!).

i hope i dont regret getting this!!

I'm sure you won't - the positives easily outweigh the negatives :thumbsup:

Im still swaying more to buying the Lumix TZ5 for an extra £60 more.... do you think it's crazy and a waste of money or will i be buying into much better clearer photo's.... we have our wedding next year and a honeymoon in the maldives so want to be able to take stunning photo's ...

If you can afford it get the TZ5 rather than this. It's very small while the Fufi is a bit of a monster. Quality of pics will be about equal - they use more or less the same sensor.

There may be another contender that sits somewhere in the middle in terms of price anyway, i.e. Fuji's ]S8000fd for £135 (review ]here) with an 18x 'superzoom'. Btw, this camera is also probably best used on manual settings & ISO 200 or lower.

Think about the picture possibilities with the superzoom in a wedding, or holiday scenario ;-) (a full-sized foldable tripod may be a good investment too!). All the best with your camera choice, & especially for the BIG day next year

Edit: Using ]LOWERVAT at checkout may reduce price slightly

i need some opinions plz which is the better camera this one or the canon ixus 960

No problem, glad to have helped

Even the S8000fd is really a 'budget' superzoom/bridge-type camera, so don't expect miracles! Acquaint yourself well with it before embarking on the holiday, etc. Try experimenting with its manual settings in different light conditions, places & scenes to get the best pics you are capable of taking. The better pictures you take, the more you'll feel like using it. Most importantly, have fun & enjoy it :thumbsup:

Back in stock & slight decrease to £107.17.
