Excellent value.

Bummer! i was the one who posted it last time at £59.99 and bought it at that! typical......

Not a bad camera for the price, voted hot.

I have noticed something though, there is a glut of cameras, both new models and price reduced older models at the £50 price point, for the average consumer it is an utter minefield and drives home the point that research should always be done before buying one, otherwise you'll end up with a nice £50 paperweight.

This is true! I am considering a budget camera for a friend's Christmas present...are there any you would recommend between the £50-100 range? Furthermore, what are the major differences between a £50 and £200 digital camera when its primary use is for day-to-day pictures and not for professional applications?

Thanks!

I bought a Fuji FinePix F45FD 8MP Digital Camera for £66 (inc. postage) at Clearance bargains on ebay. It's a rebranded F40FD for Argos. Great camera, especially indoors.

£150.

Make sure you buy something else to take you to over £50 so you get the £5 voucher. Check first though as they have given me the voucher before when a few pence below the threshold in the past.

So if i spend £50 or more i can get a £5 voucher off future purchases?

Didn't that expire on the 18th?

voucher offer expired yesterday. Been to Argos and brought this for daughter for Christmas pressie- nice little camera. Hot!:thumbsup:

I am not a fan of AA batteries when it comes to buying camera, even though the price is good. I think it is better to pay a bit more to get li-ion battery.

But that's my opinion

indeed, if this had a proper batter with a recharger i would snap up in an instant, are there any half decent cameras around the £50 mark which offer this?

still a good deal if thats not an issue so voted hot

Could anyone tell me how I can vote? and post deals in here plz?

cheers

I have just found out how.....sorry I should have looked more careful.....cheers. Got it!

For a start, choose from manufacturers that are known to make good digital cameras: Canon, Panasonic, FujiFilm, Sony, Casio, Nikon, Pentax, etc. Not all their cameras are necessarily the best or recommended, but their cameras do tend to get consistently good reviews. Try to avoid brands like Hitachi, BenQ, Samsung, Kodak, GE, Vivitar, Polaroid, etc. (btw, some of their high-end cameras are good, but will be way over your budget).

Then choose the type of camera & features: very compact, compact or a super-zoom/'bridge' camera. Latter will be relatively bulky (not suitable for slipping into a pocket), but come with more features that someone with an interest & aptitude for is likely to appreciate & make the best use of. The very compact in the budget range tend to be little better than point-and-shoot (like this one?), while others offer more manual controls &/or a substantial zoom lens, like a ]Fujifilm S5800 (£85 off Amazon - more Fuji deals from their ]refurb shop - always compare the best retail price to determine if it's indeed a good deal or not). A camera that comes with its own battery+charger will be cheaper in the short/long term. Likewise, with one that uses the cheapest memory type - i.e. SD. If it's within your budget, get them a memory card as well - a quality 2Gb SD card ]costs just £5.

Finally, always read independent reviews. They aren't perfect & appear to nit-pick most times. But they're generally consistent, fair, plus give a fairly good idea if a certain camera will be good for you or me or someone else! I'd generally avoid a camera for which I couldn't find a review - that is, unless it was bargain basement & I didn't really care about image quality, additional features, etc.

Don't get me started on this - it's going to be a lot more than the "£150" someone else managed :p. Just try to get the best camera in terms of your budget & suitability to the person it's meant for :thumbsup:

We got a Kodak camera last xmas, it's fine for outdoors, close up and when it's bright but it's rubbish for indoors and distance - it really struggles. So it's been given to my DS to 'play with' . ;-)
