Found 15th Mar 2010
This is a 720p Digital HD Camcorder that also acts as a digital camera, Internet camera & voice recorder.

Originally it was priced @ £89.99 and then it dropped to £69.99. Last month it was down to £49.99 when I posted it here. This lunch time I bought another as a present as its now priced @ £24.99

Saw this instore at Sainsburys Salisbury where they had one more box on the shelf. Shelf price looked like a normal sticker, not a price reduction or clearance. It's above the laptops and DVD player shelf.

Used it a few times now and its best with outside lighting where the picture quality is very nice.

Features:

- 5 Megapixels
- Video Recording in HD (720p) video resolution
- Rotatable 3" LCD Display
- HDMI A/V Output - HDMI Cable included
- USB/AV cable included
- carry strap/pouch
- 2GB SD card included (slot for SD/SDHC)
- Underwater casing to 5 metres

I bought one these last year for around £90, and in many ways it was great for that price. I used it on holidays and took some fantastic underwater footage of my son swimming with fish. It developed a fault, so I took it back for a refund, since at this time Sainsburys did not have any others. I picked another one up for this discount price today, so all's well that ends well!
Few points regarding this camera: it does not have a flash, so although it takes pics, they are usually dark, even at times in the brightest places. It zooms in, but it doesn't focus well. HOWEVER, it is a great camcorder for HD in light conditions and really brilliant for underwater footage. At this price, and if you can indeed get one, it's a no-brainer!

there is a light on the front of the one i got from sainsburys last year. u can use it for video, not sure about still images.

dont use it for those anyway. thats what my digital camera is for.

this is an excellent price for this, if u can find any in your local shop.

What does it for me is the 16' waterproof capabilty. While I won't be talking it scuba diving, a 16' case is pretty amazing as part of this package. I won't be making cinema movies with this but will find it great for holidays. Nice compact size in its pouch, the underwater case is pretty bulky though.

An absolute gift. You cannot go wrong.

Which Sainsburys was this in?

Is this a local offer only?

Sent the g/f to our local sainsburys in Ellesmere Port (Cheshire) When she asked about the camcorder they told her that it was only available online and did not stock any instore. Just looked at their website and could not find the camcorder anywhere.. :-(

Looks like i'm shopping tomorrow.

Great deal just can't find one. Anyone seen one about, maybe a ways North of London please?

the couple on the shelf are dummy boxes - just "reserved" one, only to find out it isn't actually there.

did you reserve online or phone up your local shop.

Blimey. Great deal if they work as the First post suggests! For £24.99, youd expect a botch!

I'd gnaw an arm off for one of these.

You carry one of these into our local baths and start filming kids, I guarentee you'll be spoken to in very quick time by the staff and the rozzers about being a paedo!!:p

good find hot for me

I got one just recently for £49.99.

I had to go to 3 Sainburys to find one then!

Anyway, the last one had one in the display cabinet with a lock on it.
These are not dummies and the box is in the case behind.

The woman checked the computer, as at first she couldn't find the box and these are officially discontinued at Sainburys.

So what they have left is all they have.

I would ring each store, rather than visit each one as they can just check on the computer with the barcode/model number.

I have bought one of these last year at the same price from sainsburys, VERY LOW QUALITY, really rubbish , returned it next day for a refund. :oops:

Just nabbed the last one in Surrey i think from Godalming (had one before which was pinched from a buggy). They arent the best quality but they are perfect for the kids, especially on holidays on the beach, round the pool, skiing etc.

Great find.

Yeah. I was told that parents aren't even allowed to bring their camera hones to the spectator stands. You can understand why.

I was thinking of using this on the beach on our next holiday.

None at the leicester store

None in Kempston or Bedford. Phoned the customer care line, was showing 3 in Milton Keynes, she rang through to get them to check but they were all gone :O(

I too would be chuffed to bits if someone could get a spare one, I would of course cover postage and throw in a little extra for your trouble.
