This is in my local Sainsburys in the north of London and seems to be a fantastic deal.
This model was, I guess, first introduced around 18 months ago but the succeeding versions are pretty similar except for the MP count which, as we all know, is irrelevant.

# 7.1 million MP CCD
# Real Photo Technology
# Compact lens with 10x optical zoom
# Intelligent Flash
# Easy operation Mode Dial selector
# Super Macro Mode
# Enhanced 2.5" LCD display
# 12 flexible Scene Modes

really good camera i paid £99 two months ago really happy with it

wouldnt say the the mp count is irrelevant but would say its not as important as people think....the higher number of pixels means you can produce larger prints in theory....though if the sensor is small/quality of components is rubbish then it could just mean larger nosiy pics..lol! :roll:

not a great camera but a pretty good deal

Yup Fantastic Camera I Lub Mine,you Can Add Filters And Wide Angle Lenses To It Aswell 46mm Lens But Fleebay Have Addapters Up To 58mm

I got the S5800 in the next sale for 50ukp. But I cannot get the fujipix software to install under vista ultimate!

What software do you need? Plug in the usb cable and it shows as a disk anway!

Humm lookin good £88 in comet. was in there today but didnt look too closely at this model.

prob is ...is it just a few stores or nation wide i guess.

Fantastic price! Heat & Rep added!

Highly praised camera and excellent for those starting their journey to become budding photographers or peeping toms

Your hands will need to be steady as a doctors as there is no IS (Image Stabilisation) but at this price you sure to be steady when pressing the 'Confirm Purchase' button :thinking:

Nice find :w00t:

For less than 70 quid, it is a GREAT a camera as you are likely to get!

I was over the moon getting my 5800 for just a fraction over £80, but this is pretty tremendous

Great camera at a ridiculously low price, well spotted mate.

Some Sainsbury Stores are open New Years Day! JUst my O/T opinion but that's terrible. Consumerism is making anything special roadkill :x

MINE HAS PICTURE STABILISATION IS THIS DIFFERENT?

My S5800 also has IS.

It would be nice if I could use the software supplied with the camera in Vista, but it will not install. Yeh I can see the camera as a disk but I would like the software also.

Hmm, it is installing today for some reason.

I seem to be getting funny errors lately on this desktop. Things like no permision to open executables that I had no problem opening before, or the fact that first time Vista will say this and then a split second later Vista will allow me to open it.

All the manual suggests is installing using Administrator account.

Seems to offer no more functionality than the image and camera wizard that is part of Vista, (and I don't use that!) so rather than clog up the system, I never even thought about installing it.

Hi according to the review "Since it has no image stabilisation the S5700 relies on its high-ISO capability to provide a fast enough shutter speed to make the long zoom viable" Image stabilisation comes in 2 forms, 1. Electronic (Camera processing) and 2.Optical (within the lenses apparatus) To keep things basic and simple (my knowledge is limited in this area) real IS is optical and it compensates hand-shakes in real-time where Electronic doesn't

Hey, s5800 does NOT have true IS either according to this review:

trustedreviews.com/dig…/p2

"One thing the S5800 lacks however is any sort of image stabilisation"

For me the chromatic aberrations spoil it. Yes Adobe Lightroom has a cure but best to avoid the prob in the first place.

Hey!

As with the s5700, the s5800 does not have true IS either, camera manufacturer claim to have IS and use such terms as 'Anti Shake'. Please see the review below.

Best camera I've ever had

I have this camera too, very pleased with it, has dual memory slots too so SD or

I have an S5800 - it's a great camera and does have an image stabilisation setting.

For £50 the 5800 is an absolute steal - didn't know Next sold cameras! And £66 is still cheap.

Got this. Well pleased. East to use for the average snapper

pretty much is irrelevent, unless you're printing for billboards anything 2mp or above is fine & only comes into consideration when digital zoom is used, but most cameras don't allow digital zoom to reduce the mp count on the section zoomed for picture to below 1mp anyway, which is more than enough for standard prints.

I have this camera, had it 18 months or so. It's quite capable and a GREAT deal at this price.

Voted hotz0r.

7MP is more than enough - The D40 which granted is a DSLR unlike this camera has only 6MP and is considered to more or less a cult classic .

Great Price.

Just to set the record straight this does NOT have true image stabilisation.

The S5700 employs 'Electronic Image Stabilisation' to prevent camera shake when recording movies.

Also, ]this (from the Fuji website) clearly states:

One of problems of long zoom cameras is blur because of the poor sensitivity of the sensor and lack of light down the lens tube. The S5700 solves this with Fuji's Picture Stabilisation mode, which increases the ISO automatically up to 1600, giving crisp, sharp results every time by automatically increasing the shutter speed when light is scarce.

That ain't IS. :whistling:

I hope you're not saying that this is a better camera based on the MP size? You cannot compare the sensor on a 'rola-cola' point and shoot camera with a DSLR. The D40 (although being only 6mp) will produce clearer pictures than the S5700 at 7mp any day of the week.

:roll:

Anyone knows what's the size of the sensor for this camera?

ps: Happy New Year All!

edit: Answered my own question :P It's 1/2.5. Which makes it pretty good. Voted hot!

So even though this clearly says 'electronic image stabilisation' you are saying it does not have any image stabilisation.

No of course I`m not -merely illustrating that Megapixels are largely irrelevant and using the D40 as an example which proves that fact - the actual image quality ona D40 would be of a completely different magnitude to the camera in this thread. -The D40 sometimes gets criticised because it`s only 6MP compared to a D60 say when in fact it takes better pictures.

What I'm saying is true 'image stabilisation' (often referred to as 'Optical Image Stabilisation' or OIS) is a mechanism used in a camera that stabilises the recorded image by varying the optical path to the sensor.

Whereas this camera is merely using 'digital image stabilisation' where the technique shifts the electronic image from frame to frame of video, enough to counteract the motion. It uses pixels outside the border of the visible frame to provide a buffer for the motion.

If for example you went into Jessops and asked for a 'image stabilised lens' you would expect to receive the former, rather than the latter, hence quoting this camera as being 'image stabilised', although is true, is very misleading especially to those new to photography.

So in answer to your question - this camera does not have true image stablisation (as most people would know image stabilisation)

:thumbsup:

The image stabilisation works in non-video mode too on the 5800 by the way.

Anyway, results speak louder than words....I took these with my 5800 on auto mode before I found out the better Program mode settings. I'm no photographer, pretty much just point & shoot:

dont agree really, for pics i would want the best quality at a reasonable price which is why i bought a budget dslr (canon d400) and decent pro lens. For compactness/size i bought my wife a canon ixus 980is.
Fuji cameras arent great but if cant afford a dslr or a decent point and shoot then this isnt bad for the price. Just dont buy a Kodak, HP, Vivitar camera as they really are terrible

Billboards size? er no, more like A3 or above is where the pixel count starts to have a noticeable difference.....but reallistically for most people how often will you print bigger than A3 anyway

Anybody else seen these?Don't wanna make a trip if it is a one off.

yes, but the sensor and electronics in the d40 are farsuperior, hence generally better pics....my assumption is that printing pics fom a d40 that are much much larger than a3 will suffer quality
