Yes I know but its very complicated and I can't seem to get to grips with it that's why I said I probably would have been better with this! I was looking at it a couple of weeks ago!

This is Nikon taking on Fujifilm in the bridge / pseudo-DSLR sector of the camera market...

Looked at this earlier in the year when my brother was looking for a bridge camera. Reviews are good from what I found with the only down point being its ability to take quick succession shots. Argos usually drop this camera to about this price when having a sale and it looks great in red. Found currys a big help when he was choosing because they had the whole range of bridge cameras and DSLR's to try instore.

Thats a good idea.

I've got one on reserve at my local Argos for my littlun (He's doing GCSE Photography and wont use my old DSLR in case "he breaks it") Will be good to try first and see any flaws if any, though the reviews as you've said seem good and the only criticism being it uses AA batteries, only 720P Video (Not an issue TBH) and less versatile than some cameras that cost double the amount. (The review compared with the P510 which is £319 vice £129, so a little unfair IMHO.

I've never found the use of AA batteries to be that much of an issue- why is it a negative?

I have a Nikon which I got in a similar sale at Homebase which uses AA I don't find it an issue at all.

4 AA batteries add quite a lot of weight to the camera, although I still prefer my Nikon bridge with AA's much cheaper to replace rechargables when they inevitablly go tits up.

How smaller is the sensor in this to the sensor in a DSLR like D3100 for instance?
They seem to keep this info hidden.

1/2.3" (6.17 x 4.55 mm)
pretty much same as most other compacts/bridges

(so much smaller than d3100)

Bit cheaper in Tesco for red version



Good spot! Its a red one I want too! X)

So an extra 129 points for buying and another 129 for using my new Tesco Credit card! I've never had so many points (after buying the Galaxy Note!!)

To be honest, given its price it does seem like a good deal for a bridge camera

is this better than the fujifilm s4000 and the panasonic dmc lz20?

I bought one of these from Homebase a month ago for £122.94 inc … I bought one of these from Homebase a month ago for £122.94 inc delivery. It has taken a week or 2 of emails and phone calls to get them to take the camera back. It is utter rubbish. For indoor shots it only focuses half of the time, and when it does it can take 5+ seconds to focus. Of all the focused photos all were blurred if you zoomed in 50% to crop the photo!I would advice to get a refurb from FuijiFilm shop they are a way better company to deal with.

i reserved this camera, but after reading your reviews im not so sure if i will pick it up.

The HS20 is a much better camera and can of course be used in auto mode for simple P&S moments. (The HS30 is even better but costs more)

The specs are pretty similar (though Id agree the HS20 is better), though to be fair the price of the HS20 is double this so you would expect that to be the case?

I picked this up a bit cheaper from homebase (argos direct) a couple of months ago. Unless your subject is happy to pose for 5-10 seconds for a photo then I would avoid. This has the worst auto focus I have ever seen on a camera. Sent mine back after a month of complaints.

refurbished through fuji

33 reviews on argos only one stated about focus and gave 1 star. the rest gave 4/5 stars and are very happy?

I don't agree that much. The picture quality is good on the camera. The focus can take a bit of time in some settings but I don't find it excessive. It is easy to blur night time shots too if you are not careful.
