Really good deal! Thanks.

Very very true - camera makers have just chosen this number and increased it without thinking of anything else. I guess that's what sells cameras! If you don't need to blow your pics up, there's no need for 10 megapixels at all
Still a good little camera, for a great price - heat from me

Couldn't agree more. More megapixels is only useful if you plan printing large prints or large poster/canvas sized prints.

The myth is: “The more megapixels a camera has, the better the pictures.”

It’s a big fat lie. The camera companies and camera stores all know it, but they continue to exploit our misunderstanding. Advertisements declare a camera’s megapixel rating as though it’s a letter grade, implying that a 7-megapixel model is necessarily better than a 5-megapixel model.

A megapixel is one million tiny colored dots in a photo. It seems logical that more megapixels would mean a sharper photo. In truth, though, it could just mean a terrible photo made of more dots. A camera’s lens, circuitry and sensor — not to mention your mastery of lighting, composition and the camera’s controls — are far more important factors.
thanks a lot!
I have this camera, and paid around £100 a few years ago. Excellent for this price!
Interesting all this talk about Megapix on a 40 quid camera. By the way, did you know that to equal the quality on a 6x4 print from a traditional film camera a digital camera needs 16 megapix.
I'm abroad till the 7th, so undoubtedly by the time I get to a Lidl's on the 8th this will be sold out! Still, very hot.

What? 16 Megapixels for a photo quality 6 x 4 photo??oO

Do you have a source for this?

As far as I am aware, 3 Megapixels would be ample:

Not bad price, but it's a discontinued model.
i use this camera when i am at gigs cos is small and the zoom is internal but most of all it has really good sound for the price.

here is a sample

photos are ok as well.

For 6x4 prints, you need 2.16Mp at 300dpi, which is the standard print resolution for photos. Even going up to 500dpi, that number only hits 6Mp. For 16Mp, you have to go to a whopping ~800dpi print resolution, meaning individual details less thick than a human hair. The quality of the glass and the sensor is far more important than the megapixels (above a certain limit); which you implied in the first sentence, but then flatly contradicted in the second.
An excellent price for a decent camera. Heat added.
MP means very little my Sony ericcson mini x10 5MP takes pictures as well as my 8.1MP Fujifilm camera , none are obviously high end cameras but neither is this.
Hot from me, I miss my old 6MP Fuji - was much better than the Kodak 12MP one I replaced it with

it's to do with luminance range, you can't really give blanket statements about both systems; more info here, clarkvision.com/art…tml

Well no, of course not, but it's generally agreed that above certain limits the amount of megapixels isn't as important as the quality of the glass and the chips. I don't even like discussing the technical aspects of cameras, I know folks who could shoot amazing photos on an iphone that I couldn't match with an all-singing, all-dancing Canon.

It's not the size of yer lens, it's how you use it

You haven't seen how 'traditional' some of my acquaintances cameras are. lol. 1 megapixel is sufficient and would be a blessing once the eyes lose their ability to pick up the finer details.
Greater megapixel number does matter for some things like blowing up images..as has been stated, but is also useful for cropping and as a pseudo-zoom technique.

Not the be all and end all, but not as irrelevant as some would have you believe.

Showing up in my local in Wales. Nice find OP.
Enjoyed the Kiss clip Great video and photo sample, especially for the price.

My last camera was the Fuji S5000 superzoom, which is 7-8 years old and still going strong. Reluctantly given to my brother and replaced because security at concerts assume it's an SLR and tell me to put it away! It's 3.2 megapixel with x10 optical zoom and people would often say "Wow, you take THOSE pictures on 3 megapixels?!" so the pixel myth goes on..

Voted hot.

My first digi camera was a Praktica 1.2 megapixel (£75 from Tesco about 10 years ago!) and it was awful for anything but daylight shots.

Put it this way, the Fuji was anything but three times better (3.2 MP versus 1.2 MP)..it was light years of a difference.

great deal, other compact fujifilms cameras I've used have produced excellent pictures (even indoors)
Got this camera for mother in law, simple and easy to use - no compaints so it must be good!

Great, helpful post, no useless opinions just hard evidence. Liked
very nice deal; a fan of Fujifilm will definitely go for it!

Exactly, makes me laugh, particularly with the mobile phone manufacturers. They may have god knows how many megapixels

-but-

what use is that with a plastic lens, and a very small lens at that....
I am a big fan of Fuji compact / bridge cameras since moved from Nikon to Fuji.

I bought Z35 (£49) last year to gift someone which seems to be a ditto copy of Z20 in specs and only major difference is that Z20 supports instead of SD / SDHC.

For all those who fear the price premium of xD cards compared to SD, a quick search on 'that famous auction site' turns up xD to micro SD adapters for under £2 in the UK.
Zedex, which store is that in Wales, i'd love to get one of these but theres nothing showing near south wales.
How much does memory cost?
Haddas

How much does memory cost?



Bout a tenner for a 1GB,few quid more for a 2GB.Still a good deal for a camera like this with a memory card for around £50 all in.I'm going to buy my daughter one.

Cheers OP.
