Panasonic TZ10 £218.49 with voucher code + Quidco + £30 Cashback @ Best Buy

Found 12th Dec 2010Made hot 12th Dec 2010
£218.49 + £32.54 Quidco + £30 Cashback (Making it £155.97)

Cracking camera, with superb reviews. One of the best compacts on the market. This went over 400 degrees only 9 days ago when the cashback price was £178.50.

Be quick expires midnight 13th December. The lowest price on the market by a distance. Amazon (black only is £176.30 with cashback - red/silver considerably more). Choice of red, black or sliver

Web price = £229.99 - use 5IMG to get 5% off = £218.50 (also compatible with Quidco, as per Quidco website)
Quidco @ 14.89% (equivalent to VAT) = £32.53
Cashback via panasonic claim form (GIYF) = £30.00
Final price after quidco and cashback = £155.97

Many disappointed a couple of weeks ago when the blue camera from Best Buy could be bought for a similar price, but went OOS. Now with the 5IMG code the red, silver and black cameras are the same price.

Free delivery from 20/12 onwards, so in time for Xmas.

Remember, be quick, expires midnight Monday 13th December.

My Quidco (£32.53) has already tracked 10 minutes after ordering.

Unlike a TKMaxx iPad, these cameras are in stock.

Camera is now £229.99 and £4.95 delivery

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ10 is an excellent travel-zoom camera, with the … The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ10 is an excellent travel-zoom camera, with the notable additions of manual shooting modes and GPS tracking sure to continue the TZ success story, albeit at the real expense of a higher price-tag than the previous TZ7 model.The welcome addition of A, S and M shooting modes is by far the biggest reason to upgrade to this new model, bringing the TZ10 up to speed with several key rivals. Creative photographers will love the extra flexibility, although sadly there's no RAW mode to really sweeten the deal. Beginners shouldn't be scared off the TZ10, as Panasonic's excellent hand-holding Intelligent Auto mode is present and correct. In comparison with its substantially cheaper sibling, the DMC-TZ8, this camera additionally offers GPS tracking, a better LCD screen and AVCHD movies with stereo sound and a HDMI port, all of which are worth paying the extra for.Thankfully the GPS feature, which has been a little hit-and-miss on previous cameras that we've reviewed, works largely as advertised on the TZ10. It's quick to start-up, stays turned-on even when the camera is turned-off, and even works reliably in built-up areas. The main issues are the need to sometimes manually update the satellite lock and quite a big drain on the battery life, unsurprising given that the GPS is always on by default.The inevitable marketing-led increase from 10 to 12 megapixels doesn't make too much real-world difference and thankfully hasn't come at the expense of image quality, with the TZ10 maintaining similar noise performance as the TZ7 at comparable ISO speeds. I'd be happy to use ISO 100-400 for most photos, with ISO 800 reserved for low-light situations, on a par with most of its main competitors in this category. As with all the recent TZ-series cameras, the 12x zoom lens in particular is a real attraction, providing both an ultra-wide 25mm angle of view and a 300mm telephoto setting that really will cover virtually every photographic situation that you'll encounter.The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ10 is one of the newest and one of the best travel-zoom cameras available, although it is slightly more expensive on launch and slightly more complicated to use than its popular predecessor. There aren't too many compact cameras that offer such a compelling combination of size, features, image quality and handling, easily making the TZ10 deserving of our Highly Recommended award.

Someone in the last deal / thread called BB and Panasonic to confirm... yes was the answer

And the chances of you ACTUALLY getting a single penny through Quidco....about the same as Wagner winning X-factor or ..you make it up

Not sure I'd buy anything based on the Quidco as the tracking is so unreliable and raising a query is torture. This camera was £199.99 (less £30 cashback) on Play a few weeks ago so hardly a groundbreaking price.

Hot for me!
I got it from Harrods (£100 off voucher), for £153 (no including cashback)
Its a great camera! You do need an sdhc memory card class 6 or greater!
Cheap cases on ebay!

It may well of been £200 a few weeks ago, but on Play it's £230 now. I wasn't traying to buy it a few weeks ago.

For info., my quidco tracked after 10 minutes. You can always cancel you order (before delivery) if it doesn't track within 3 days.

£156 for this camera is very cheap. There's an awful lot of average cameras for around this price.
Edited by: "Bobbins" 12th Dec 2010

what a coincident, I just bought one 2 days ago at my local Panasonic dealer.

Paid £230 for a silver TZ10 with free 8GB class 10 SDHC card (Amazon sells this for £9) and a free genuine Panasonic leather case for TZ10 (Amazon sells this for £22), all this plus a nice person-person shopping experience and no agonising wait on the camera via RM.

just sent off the £30 cash back, fingers crossed.

£230-22-9-30=£169

use 5IMG to get 5% off = £218.50

the TZ7 is still by far the best camera of the lumux range. The picture quality with the TZ10 is poor. Panasonic have done away with picture quality and inserted GPS but forgot they were building a camera and not satnav. Read the reviews for TZ10 picture quality BAD BAD BAD. TZ7 all day long, all day long

Great find, have been waiting to get my hands on this. Was about to for Amazon and saw this. Just order a red one and quidco tracked in an hour. Sweet! Heat Added.

But apart from the gps and a few other enhancements the specs are exactly the same as for the tz7, so if they are using the same lense and software i cant see how it could be worse then the tz7

sorry this has been been posted before and the code was included last week

hotukdeals.com/dea…e=2

started off as a dixons thread but got turned into a bestbuy thread with the above code

Got this off Amazon a few weeks ago for £197.99 (camera case glitch) -£30 cashback (which arrived after around 10 days).

A really great camera for what turned out to be £167.99, so the OPs price is an absolute steal (if the Quidco tracks/pays).

Hot from me (almost wish I'd waited).

I'm no camera expert, but according to this review, TZ10 has a new sensor and new image processor, which could be the reason why.

Nice deal. Heat added

"For info., my quidco tracked after 10 minutes. You can always cancel you order (before delivery) if it doesn't track within 3 days."
Tracking means nothing...has anyone ever been PAID by quidco for Bestbuy?

Is quidco actually tracking at £32.53?
Because although they say "equivalent to VAT on your purchase", they also say "Cashback may only be paid on the basket value excluding VAT & delivery."
So £218.49 without VAT is £185.95, and 14.89% of that is £27.29.
Only about £4 difference, but just would like to know exactly what to expect.
Also, does this 5% voucher expire tonight, or end of Monday?
Thanks,
T.

How much is your Quidco showing?

BB not been going that long in the UK therefore most claims are still in Tracking / validation period

Quidco tracked at £32.53 for me - see first post.

Quidco + 5IMG expiry is 13th December, which usually means midnight on the 13th. So in theory you have until tomorrow night.

Edited by: "Bobbins" 12th Dec 2010

Cheers Bobbins, I really shouldn't, but this might be just too tempting!

The web exclusive deal is out of stock. So no quidco or tcb!

Silver and red in stock, black and blue sold out. Unless reserve and collect will work? Ah which quidco says it wont.

I was gonna go for blue.

Edited by: "Kenshin" 13th Dec 2010

No black in stock, Reserve and collect for my preferred store not in stock!

Heat added!

When do these refresh?

If I remember correctly shortly before Feb 2011 next TZ model would be announced.
