This Seems a good deal as they are selling on amazon at around £130
A couple of bad reviews but mainly good as 4.3 out of 5. Quite a lot of camera for not a lot of money

Up to 0 frames per second eh!!??

I imagine this is a horrendous camera, but it's only £59. Great for someone who isn't serious about taking great photos.

Based on?

junk , tripe , compared to what ?? what would you advise for people on a budget ??

I am no expert, but surely this will take a better picture than a 1/2" thick compact camera for the same sort of money? Why do people think this is such a bad camera, DSLR snobs? (I am not calling anyone a DSLR snobs, just speculating on why they don't like it but give no reasons).

based on hitachi don't even make cameras for a start


I read that on the reviews But whoever makes this the reviews were mainly good apart from a couple who seemed to have gotten a faulty camera, and they got thier money back

for slightly more i'd get a refurb Fuji s2950 … for slightly more i'd get a refurb Fuji s2950 http://shop.fujifilm.co.uk/finepix-s2950-refurbished.htmlthere is a code somewhere for 10% off the price of £69.98 so with p&p your looking at about £65 del


Have you or do you know of any one who has used this camera, as you seem so anti to this?

did you read or even find any professional reviews?


Come off it, Professional reviews We are not talking nikon or pentex prices here are we

Image quality and quality photographs have nothing to do with each other. Put this in the hands of a real photographer and they'll produce some nice pictures within the limits of the camera. Always makes me lol to see peeps trashing everything but the £2000 DSLR they use to upload pictures of cats to their photoblog.

Played with a couple of Hitachi compacts belonging to friends, not sure who they're getting the sensors from, but results were on a par with similar priced stuff and about what you'd expect. Make or break on this is going to come down to that 21x lens me reckons...

so you agree its not of a quality worth reviewing by a professional


No I agree with the post above you, and as I said if your not happy with the camera you can always take it back for a refund. So its horses for courses. But out of interest what camera do you own?

Yeah but cats are awesome. So....

Hot, but I find it hard to believe that this is a genuine product. It seems like they're trying to pull a fast one.
Hitachi? Really?

Dodgy generic Chinese no name brand camera badged as Hitachi, avoid.

This will be as good as the Jean Patrique "Professional knives". Probably made by Mattel. Common sense should tell you that you will not get a decent camera with this spec at this price. Will be rubbish, no need to try it.

You get what you pair for and you have to feel for the suckers that paid £130 for this. Hot from me because someone on a budget may get some use out of this and it stands by the principles of this website.

I have 2 £10 vouchers from the last spend over £100 offer. This is an absolute bargain for £40

Ordered in for Tuesday

I reckon that this is a great price for someone who only has £60 to spend on a camera.

hot agree with most of above
keep your receipt

Bought the Fuji one mentioned earlier. Hope I like it. First dip into the bridge world! oO

Use your phone...
better result

Just break it. Then it's faulty. No risk, job done.

PLEASE don't bring horses into this too!

"If you are looking for a good camera get this I have been looking at these for a long time a decided to take the plunge and im glade I did take the best pictures ever. If you a in the market for a camera then get this on."

"I looked online at a few camera,s but i didnt rate them. then this camera caught my eye and i thought i would take a look at it in my local Argos wich is in Peterlee. I was very immpressed so went a head and bought it.. it does everything i need as a amuater photographer. takes great photos."

Says it all really: appeals to illiterate twelve year olds. If you're still not convinced have a look at the BAD reviews!

Looks like one of those horrible GE bridge cameras. Avoid like a serious case of the plague!

After owning a couple of Hitatchi cameras it is a brand I would rather buy than any other.

I find that remark to be offensive and degrading.So out of intrest, how long have ypu been suffering from low whit and inteligence?
Edited by: "leeparsons" 12th Apr 2013

Some "photographers" are more interested in talking about their "gear" than using it, eh trolls?.

whatsThePoint

so did I, that's why I asked them how long they had been blind


chose your words correctly, and dont mock people refering to other peoples disabilties.
One day, it will come back to haunt you.
