Found 28th Oct 2008Made hot 28th Oct 2008
Was looking for a cheap camera for a christmas present.

I was looking at the C813 for the same price which is a 8MP version at argos but they were sold out so tried the next model up which is the C913 which in the catologue said it was £99.99 but on the product availabilty checker at argos it said it was £59.99.

You also get a £5 voucher when you spend over £50

I have had a look round and this is the best price i have seen

for the extra £1 or so I'd rather get from argos either to take back if anything goes wrong

well i went and got it in store, much easier

The thing I hate about these cheap camera's is the fact that they take 2 x AA batteries! I prefer those with the rechargeable packs!

You do realise you can get very large capacity AA recharable batteries (2800mAH for about 4 for £8).

This will recharge about 500 to 1000 times and will give you about 200 photos each time. IMHO a camera with AA is probably what i would go for. Atleast you dont have to buy any nasty expensive special batteries and if you run on holiday who does not stock standard AA batteries.

The special batteries you refer to are lithium.

See below for differences. All the slim cameras will use the lithium. I am using hybrio batteries which are in between lithium and normal nimh

Nicad vs. NiMh

The main difference between the two is that NiMH battery (the newer technology of the two) offers higher energy density than NiCads. In other words, the capacity of a NiMH is approximately twice the capacity of its NiCad counterpart. What this means is for you is increased run-time from the battery with no additional bulk or weight. NiMH also offers another major advantage: NiCad batteries tend to suffer from what is called the "memory effect". NiMH batteries are less prone to develop this problem and thus require less maintenance and conditioning. NiMH batteries are also environmentally friendlier than NiCad batteries since they do not contain heavy metals (which present serious landfill problems). Note: Not all devices can accept both NiCad or NiMH batteries.
Lithium Ion

Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) has become the new standard for portable power in consumer devices. Li-Ion batterys produce the same energy as NiMH battery but weighs approximately 20%-35% less. This is can make a noticeable difference in devices such as cellular phones, camcorders or notebook computers where the battery makes up a significant portion of the total weight. Another reason Li-Ion batteries have become so popular is that they do not suffer from the "memory effect" at all. They are also environmentally friendly because they don't contain toxic materials such as Cadmium or Mercury.

Does anyone know if you get the £5 voucher if you buy online? Or is it in store only?

Thanks

Sorry I have just been and checked the site, get an online code if you place the order online.

not a hot deal available generally at that price
ctoumi has it a couple of quid cheaper

I buy the NP45 "nasty expensive special batteries" for my Fuji on eBay for a couple of quid, they're more powerful than the OEM ones and they last for ages (a *lot* more than 200 shots).

Still, ignorance and bliss and all that
