normal price for a **** camera

Excuse me.....but I have just bought one of these for my son for his birthday today and it really doesn't appear to be anything better than our Sony Cybershot which cost £150 last year (hence I won't let the kids play with it)

This is an ideal camera for kids at a budget price...

It gives good quality video capture including sound + really nice pictures!!

So far I am impressed for £35 including Quidco I think it's a go!!

So don't follow the sheep with all the cold votes!!


It isn't a Vivitar, so voted hot. Good price for a 5mp camera.

Yeah the 'family camera' is 7MP but this is posted really for the benefit of parents with kids who want a camera of their own!

By all means post links to better cameras at the same/similar price (because I couldn't find any when I looked) but I beg you not to vote cold on the strength that the camera is inferior to what is available on the market!

For crying out loud it is only £36 quid after quidco !!!

Ideal for kids !!

Get it?????

I would never buy another digital camera that doesn't have rechargable batteries. Not even for the kids, as digital cameras just eat batteries.

Without appearing aggressive can someone post a link to a camera worth buying at this price.....before voting cold???

As I say I own a perfectly decent Sony Cybershot DSC-P200 but won't let the kids use it as it cost a fair amount of cash!

This is a budget camera for use by 10 year olds!!!

Not a bad price to give them what they want.... to be fair I can't see them saving all the pics their take - it's just the 'moment' thing!


No optical zoom, sorry but this deal is ice!

Sorry had to vote cold. I would never buy a digital camera that doesnt have optical zoom. Even for the kids i would pick up a decent camera from ebay for £30ish before buying this.


[*]Megapixels: 6
[*]LCD screen: 2.5"
[*]Optical zoom: 3x
[*]Digital zoom: 5x
[*]Memory card type: SD card[/LIST]
At £49.99, not quite as cheap as the Praktica, but this Samsung from Comet provides a big improvement in features for not much more.

Still just within the price range for the kids I think.

No optical zoom means no matter how cheap and good a deal it is, it resigned to being sub-par quality photo's.
