Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ72 60 x Zoom bridge camera £200 (£140 after £60 cashback from Panasonic) at Purewell Electrical

Found 25th Dec 2014
Following what was a great deal by Newbold, I found Purewell Electrical were selling the camera for £199.99. The Panasonic cashback doubles from today to 4th January making this a fantastic £140!

How is cashback claimed through this site can I ask? and is it reliable?

In addition, how is the camera? Seems to be a lot of camera for the price.

looks good, thanks.

Posted yesterday on Amazon @ £215 + cashback receiving some pretty good feedback. Also read a few Amazon customer comments score 98 '5' star ratings - I want this camera but know nothing about Purewell?

Camera came yesterday, great piece of kit. Tomorrow is the last day to get £60 cashback!

Unfortunately out of stock at Amazon; as for £15 more you got a two year warranty.

£228 at John Lewis (2 year warranty) - and given that Purewell has a physical shop as well as an online operation John Lewis should match the Purewell price.

The warranty is a Panasonic promotion, not sure why you think you can't get the warranty when purchasing through Purewell Electrical

Full moon tonight, this is the shot on auto setting

Yep - you're right the 2 year warranty is a Panasonic promotion for authorised dealers so will be available to anyone who bought from Purwell.
The 2 year warranty wasn't mentioned in your deal or on the Purwell website so I wasn't sure it was available (in fact they specifically say 1 year warranty in the deal page).

Unfortunately it's not easy to get a decent shot of the full moon with these small sensor cameras even with a massive zoom range.

I found that anything from a quarter to three-quarter moon you get some really interesting detail along the terminator; I'm struggling to get a really good shot from the FZ72; the Fuji S1 I had for a few days was fantastic and the HX400v not too much worse.

Here's one of the better images i've taken with the FZ72:

For comparison this is the very first shot of the moon I took with the Fuji S1:

It was not mentioned as I was not aware of the 2 year promotion, a quick look on Amazon confirmed that it was in fact a Panasonic promotion and is open to all Panasonic authorised dealers

You're welcome - I hope others will be happy with the 2 year warranty also

Purewell has increased the price to £215 given that Amazon is out of stock
