far too many megapixels for the sensor size. hope your not disappointed about the noise and artifacts.

I'd consider the Fuji F72 from Jessop for £130 as an alternative. Much better performance and your not tight to propriator batteries (as you are with Panny)

14.7 Mp! dont think the average punter will want to blow up his pictures to the size of Big Ben talk about overkill! pet2000 talks a lot of sense..........sometimes:whistling:

These Lumix camera's are superb, I have one myself and they take a beautiful picture.

Remember you get what you pay for, and at this reduced price seems like a very good deal to me! :w00t:

Bought one for this price from play a couple of months back - excellent cam for the money !

Agreed, on both accounts. But there may be people who will not settle for anything less than a Canon or Panasonic (much to their shame). So if you're after one of those then this is an amazing deal!

thx gonna order one to take pics of the kids and help gia become model

According to dpreview the FX150 has a pixel density of 36MP/cm2 compared with 33MP/cm2 for the Fuji FX70 ( basically the same as the FX72 I think? ) so not much in it from that point of view, more down to the different noise reduction algorithmns (sp) than the pixel count. Agree 14MP is OTT for the vast majority of likely users though.

get the f72 you wont be disappointed, it went down a hit with the ladies, about the SIZE of my camera lens with 10x optical on the f72,

have got this, it is amazingly small for a lot of camera!!

]PC World have it for £121:97 so it's being cleared out in a few places. Personally I wouldn't go for it, it seems to be one of the last designs of the megapixel count over image quality war.

anybody got a link for the f72 for £130?

I am in desperate need of a new camera. Going on a few holidays this year so I want something that will produce great pictures. I was looking to pay up to £300 but this one seems a decent buy for the money.

I have also seen the following on here:

Can someone, who has an idea about cameras, give me their opinion (best) of these three? I am also open to suggestion on any other sub-£300 camera.:thumbsup:

Go to the Jessops website, use Quidco (now 4% rather than 8%) and the code JESSOPS5 for another 5% off the price and then reclaim £30 via the cashback offer and Hey Presto it's £130 (plus a bit more due to the Quidco reducing and the Jessops 8% code not working anymore).

check reviews, and excellent quality images, just as well the camera has 10 image size settings so you don't have to take huge images you'll never print

It's real normal price was around £210.

Image Quality: Image quality is very good - with excellent colour, and high levels of saturation, contrast and detail. Noise levels were higher than average, but results were good at ISO400 or below and prints made from this camera looked excellent, and detail was very good. There was some red eye in group photos, and purple fringing was occasionally seen. The camera did a good job focusing most of the time, even indoors, thanks to the focus assist lamp. There was no noticeable vignetting (darkened corners) despite the wide angle lens, nor did I notice barrel or pincushion distortion in photos. There is a very good range of image sizes, aspect ratios, and a good choice of compression options. Auto white balance, metering and exposure seemed to be very good, and manual white balance can help with photography in artificial lighting. Optical image stabilisation helped keep shots blur / shake free in low light helping the camera get a higher shot success rate than cameras without. The camera has an excellent 16:9 HD video mode that lets you use the optical zoom while recording. (8.5/10)

Everything else (the camera as a whole): The camera is compact with a stylish metal body available in dark silver or black. The camera feels very well built, with pleasing switches, and is fairly comfortable to hold. It features things you may not need such as face detection, intelligent Auto, but it turns out that these can be useful features. The camera has a great 2.7" screen that works well even in the sun. The camera is easy to use, thanks to numerous scene modes, and clever auto modes, and provides quick access to the most commonly used options. The layout of buttons and controls is very good. The camera speed is good, with an average switch on time, quick focusing time, excellent shutter response, quick playback mode, quick menus, and quick continuous shooting mode, and a quick flash recharge time. The camera has a wide range of features that should suit most people, such as face detection focus, red-eye reduction, numerous scene modes, excellent video mode, very good macro mode, a wide angle 3.6x optical zoom lens with image stabilisation, manual white balance and numerous image options. The camera also has good battery life. The camera also features full manual controls and numerous creative options. (9.5/10)

It depends on what you want to do, the Panny Lumix TZ6 has a honking great zoom for a compact and a Leica Lens, it can't shoot HD video and has a slightly smaller LCD screen size but in other respects is the same as its big brother the TZ7. It's basically a fantastic Point and Shoot camera.

The Canon Powershot SX 200 has a similar feature set but the Pannys beat it in the ]dpreview superzoom test.

I would buy the Fuji F72EXR, if you are not massively bothered about manual control and want something easily portable that will produce great results. If you make use if all the current offers and codes it could be yours for about £140. If you are dead set on getting one of the three you mention them my vote goes to the Panasonic TZ6, then the Canon SX 200 and a long way behind them, the one in this deal

Voted this cold and have added ther PC World deal.

couldnt agree more :thumbsup: although the FX ones are very good

austinc;7394693

They're very different, the TZ7 is a zoom camera and has a big zoom range (12x) and 10MP, this one here has 3.6x zoom but 14MP. The TZ7 got 90% in What Digital Camera, the FX550 which is very similar to this one got 91%.

If you need a big zoom get the TZ7, otherwise this may be the better option.

Not a bad deal at all...Though personally I am getting TZ7 (or ZS3 in US) for around 150 GBP (250 USD) from amazon US and one of my friend will get it from US...I am lucky to get it for 150 GBP

this can do 720p videos too 1280x720 @ 24fps

I want to see a good deal on the Panasonic DMC-LX3

Ignore me

If you're considering the TZ6 rather than TZ7 then I assume HD video isn't an imperative in which case I'd suggest lookng at the Fuji F200EXR (5x zoom) or Fuji F70/72EXR (10x zoom). The Fujis are cheaper than both the SX200 and TZ6 and smaller than the TZ6 so maybe more pocketable.

I'm no expert and can only speak from limited experience; but having owned Fuji (s8000fd), Canon (powershot 450,510,470, A1100) and Panasonic (FZ38) compact cameras I'd say say Panasonic are over-hyped as regard actual picture quality - in my view the Fuji EXRs represent very good value for money.

No - "if you're ugly, you're ugly!"

It's like "if you're ignorant, you're ignorant!".

It may be a great camera and it may be a great price, but as soon as I see it's from Play.com it looses it for me....they are the worst ever company I have ever had the misfortune to do business with and they are getting worse

Thanks for bringing the TZ7 to my attention. I think I'd rather get that over the TZ6.
I also like the look of the[SIZE=2] Sony Cyber-shot WX1, which is similarly priced. Just can't decide which one to get. I suppose I had better start looking for some reviews?

It's also worth considering the TZ-65 which is the version Dixons Group sell. Basically it is a TZ-6 but with the same screen as the TZ-7. It comes in at £179, I bought one the other day.
