A stunningly good deal for today only - 10% off at Hughes + double the Panasonic cashback (£60) + 5% Quidco on top (£12.15)

So potentially £170.85 for a £270 camera (as recommended by Which? and last week's Gadget Show)

John Lewis (and pretty much all UK suppliers) sell this at £269, so the 10% on offer from Hughes is exceptional - you could try to persuade John Lewis to match the price, because Hughes also have shops.

The DMC-FZ72 features stunningly versatile LUMIX DC VARIO 20mm ultra wide-angle lens with a 60x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 20-1200mm) making it possible to capture dynamic landscape and wild animals or birds distant away. The 20mm ultra wide angle lens captures approx.140% wider angle of view compared with a 24mm angle of view.

The POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) effectively suppresses hand-shake vibration. The angular width that the DMC-FZ72 can compensate is more than 200% wider than the predecessor DMC-FZ62 at the tele-end, which realizes handheld 1200mm super telephoto shooting.

The Active Mode is equipped with DMC-FZ72 that encourages active video recording at wide angle such as shooting while walking without causing deterioration of image quality.

The recorded videos come with the highly realistic Dolby Digital Stereo Creator and its sound quality is further improved with the DMC-FZ72 thanks to the newly developed Wind Shield Zoom Microphone that minimizes wind noise by approx. 70% compared with the predecessor DMC-FZ62. Externally, the special sealed structure prevents wind from hitting the microphone directly and the draft structure suppresses retention of air internally. As a result, the sound is clear, comfortable to listen even it was recorded on a windy day.

The DMC-FZ72 records full-HD 1920 x 1080 videos in both AVCHD and MP4 format. A special, separate button on the top lets you instantly start recording videos while shooting photos without having to make any extra settings.

The 16.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor is newly integrated in the DMC-FZ72. Together with the high performance image processing LSI Venus Engine, it elevates the response, sensitivity and image quality of the DMC-FZ72 even to the higher level.

Integrating the high speed digital signal output technology, the DMC-FZ72 shoot 9 fps in 16.1-megapixel full resolution with mechanical shutter and 5 fps with continuous AF. It also contributes to the Light Speed AF. Together with the quick start-up time, the DMC-FZ72 never misses the most fleeting shooting opportunities.

No problem - it seemed too good a deal to miss. Bought one myself after having scoured the market to find a reputable seller with a decent price.

This seems to be the only decent deal from a decent seller around - and the double (£60) cashback from Panasonic clinches it. That's as good as money in the bank, and the Quidco £12 will be a bonus.

John Lewis really should be matching this, but I gather someone's tried and they've refused to match it - quoting all sorts of garbage reasons as to why they won't. Their Never Knowingly Undersold policy ought to be remarketed as a Never Knowingly Agreed policy.

I´m looking for a good point and shoot camera for family occasions etc, I was about to buy the Canon from Argos but now tempted with this one! Im not sure if this deal is worth the extra £60 or so compared to the Canon, is this worth the difference?


Thanks OP.

I have this camera and it was worth every penny (£220 4 months ago).

Don't be put off by the 16.1 mega pixel sensor, the picture quality is very good. I was even able to take a picture of moon without a tripod.

Heat added.
