Possible Quidco

Very good camera for the price. Hot.

It's also worth considering the S2500 at Amazon for £123 delivered or £109.48 from Fuji refurb (using code PSPEND)
hotukdeals.com/dea…663

Available at the following stores if it helps anyone.

Pick-up on 22nd Dec 2010 after 9.00 hrs

London - Moorgate.
Islington.

Ipswich - Buttermarket.
Bury St Edmunds.
Southend.

have some heat - good deal!!

Cracking deal.
Stock also showing in Oxford, Reading and High Wycombe

Cheaper than the Fuji refurb shop (even after using the PSPEND code), which is normally good value.
So hot deal for sure.

I live within walking distance from both the Islington and Moorgate stores, so might have go pick one up (then think of someone to give it to, as I grabbed a HS10 for myself recently :p).

As said, a cracking camera for the price if you can find one near you. None in South Wales at all as far as I can tell. Never mind.

Thanks for that. Merry xmas. Can you post a camera with this spec & zoom for less than £90 please. This is not a professional camera, but it's a bloody good one for just over 90 quid. Only idiots just looking at a picture would be fooled into thinking it was a SLR. This is a just digital camera with a big zoom, looks nothing like a SLR in the flesh. You could read the reviews of the people who actually have the camera. Good expert reviews as well. THIS IS £200 ON AMAZON so I don't think it's cold.

Very good for the price, can't find any local to me or I'd have purchased one.

As an amateur photographer, it's true they're not SLRs, but they're intended as bridge cameras, to fill the gap between compacts and SLRs. However they're neither rubbish nor bulky. They can produce some incredible quality photos and most of the higher end models come loaded with features. This model has full HD video (which an SLR obviously wouldn't) and a massive 15x optical zoom (which would require you buying an expensive zoom lens for an SLR. A good package for the budding photographer, and you really cannot knock this price, again, if you're lucky enough to have any in stock near you.

Says there's no stock on the website but I'm going to call into my local store (5 mins walk away) at lunchtime on the offchance.

Might be worth checking if they can do an inter store transfer. Still in stock Scotland & parts of England (not checked Wales). Won't be for long though.

It's a Bridge camera. They're intended for people looking to get a little more control on the photography process and a longer zoom.

Not true. Some SLR's do have full HD video. But they do cost a lot more than £99.

Thanks for the post. Don't forget jessop code + quidco that brings it down to £90 ish

I'm not voting either way but just wanted to point our the HD movie mode is just 720p in case some people thought it was 1080p.

Capture high resolution images in 16:9 format. 1280 x 720 pixels [HD] … Capture high resolution images in 16:9 format. 1280 x 720 pixels [HD] (Max recording time: 15 min.) / 640 x 480 pixels / 320 x 240 pixels (30 frames/sec.)



If video is high on your list of priorities, this camera might not fit the bill.

I got an earlier incarnation of this camera and was amazed by its image quality. Its a case being on the computer and zooming in, and zooming in again, and zooming in...each time just giving more detail.

Fuji aren't trying to fool anyone. It's a bridge camera, and it looks like many other bridge cameras made by other companies.
It's a step up from compact cameras, for people who want more control over the settings, but don't want to go all the way to DSLR's (which can be too complicated and much more expensive).

As for picture quality, I'm guessing you've never actually used this camera, as you are completely wrong. These produce pretty decent images, most owners are very pleased with the camera.

Seeing as it's primarily a stills camera, that matters very little (in fact, I see the the 720p video as a bit of a bonus).
If anyones priority is video, they would be better off buying a camcorder, no?

great deal but cant find any stock in west yorkshire. Oh well

Where do Fuji state 'SLR' in this product description ?

They don't ?

So your point is...?

Yes, this brings it to £93.06.


OP....you should update your post to show this even lower price.

Bigbil

Agreed, IF Full HD Video capability is high on someones list of priorities, will they be looking at less than £100 ??

The problem with this camera is the fact HD video (only does 720p) is pointless. Why you ask? I'll tell you.

The design of these camera's is flawed, and as a result, any HD video filmed with them has a high pitched sound recorded with it. Take a look on YouTube if you don't believe me.

I had two of these maybe a year ago, and had to send back for a refund as the sound was just so irritating.

Thus, if you're buying this for the HD video, it's not worth it. And if you're NOT buying this for the HD video, then there are better Bridge cameras out there that don't do HD video, at this sort of price. e.g. the Fuji S8000fd
Edited by: "ReflexReact" 22nd Dec 2010

Not saying it's a bad deal, just that it's been mentioned a few times that it does HD video so felt it worth clarifying that so people can make an informed decision. Personally speaking, that's what I'm looking for in a new camera as my existing one is rubbish in that regard. I'd rather pay more for 1080p without the 15 minute limit but of course many people couldn't care less about it and for them this is undoubtedly a hot deal.

I don't know if you can get decent camera that will do 1080p for under £100 but that's not the point I'm trying to make. I just wouldn't want people to buy it wanting to use the movie mode and not realise it's limitations.


Quite possibly, or if they don't want to lug around 2 devices they might want to spend a bit more and get a camera that can perform both duties admirably. Everyone has different requirements and priorities.

in my humble opinion these cameras have good lens but poor sensors, meaning it will struggle in low light. but again what can yo uask for at the price?

Fuji S8000 is NOT a fair comparison. Used ones on amazon are more expensive than this. You could use the same argument that if you wanted to pay £55-£60 more than the S8000 you would get a better camera again, and if you wanted to pay £55-£60 more than that....and so on and so on. I think any difference is negIigible and the PRICE swings it. I agree with other posts if you want better video, you would be better with a cam. Look at the reviews. This camera takes better pictures than the average joe needs & video is a bonus. ...........C'Mon its £93

good deal, hot

+ the S8000fd is a year older (so older tech under the hood), and has a lower res sensor than the S2000HD.

BUT (so I don't seem too one sided), you can get a refurb S8000fd from Fuji for £99.98 including delivery (using the code 'PSPEND'). And Fuji refurbs are pretty much always as good as brand new with a 12 month warranty.

That said, given the choice, I'd still go for the S2000.

I had a refurb s8000fd from Fuji. It was great until a dropped and broke it.

Well worth investing in their warranty which (I think) includes accidental damage.
