Nikon Coolpix P50 at ASDA
This is my first submission so hopefully I will get it right.

Just been to ASDA at Minworth, West Midlands and they have Nikon P50 coolpix in black rollback from £150 to £75. I have done a quick search on the net and this seems a great price.

Thanks for that, I presume more positive comments shoots it up on to the Hot page. Whislt I don't need a new camera it just seemed a great price and I do like the Nikon brand.

Very good price for a good camera....Thanks

I Think this must be Nationwide because there was a load of them in Hull too.

Meh. I've had this camera and sold it due to the pics being of a generally ****** quality (Fuzzyness and purple-fringing). I was drawn in by the brand and didn't do enough research. Important to remember that nowadays a good brand does not necessarily denote a good product.

Maybe yours was faulty/bad sample though reviews mention some lens problems. Even so, I would say you'd be hard pressed to find a better camera for 75 quid?
Reviews, though not exactly glowing are not too bad even judging it against it's 'proper' price.

I don't think mine was faulty, maybe I was expecting too much from a compact digital camera, but unless the light was bright (read, the Sahara desert) the pictures just looked pants.

It's the tiny sensors on many of these compacts and lenses not being matched properly. Maybe get away with it on a sunny day and the fact most people don't really enlarge their pictures or understand image quality. Years ago people happily snapped away with ***** 110 negative or even more modern APS cameras and didn't notice how bad they were. Personally I'd recommend Canon compacts. Check the reviews, they don't always come out on top but they are always up in the top places and rarely do you see a bad review. Having said that my work colleague just bought a 'Traveller' compact from Aldi. I thought they were mad but I had to eat my words when I saw a quailty built metal camera and good pictures. Credit where credit is due.
