just realised the OP has posted the price with the voucher applied, thats why i was confused.

you can get pack of two 2gb sd cards from play.com £8.99:thumbsup:they are an exellent buy along with this camera..

Great deal! Just ordered the black one with the accessory kit.

Bought this camera for £100 in October last year.

Can't fault i really. Great quality pictures. It will eat alkaline batteries for breakfast though. You need to use rechargeables or lithium disposable.

A set of 2800mh batteries (7dayshop) will last for at least a couple of hundred pictures with no flash, whereas, 2 duracell batteries will last for about 10 pictures, NO KIDDING !

The funny thing is though, is that it comes with 2 duracells.....lol.

Brilliant just ordered the black one many thanks :thumbsup:

So is there any difference between the black and silver versions?

one is black and one is silver! boom boom

no seriously doesnt appear to be but i would go for silver as black usually means a lot of smudges and fingerprints..could be wrong but you cant go wrong with silver

Any reviews of this model about on the web ? Tried the usual suspects (Steve's digicam etc) can't seem to see anything. In the market for a new camera and am somewhat tempted ...

no, sorry that was my fault. Because the OP posted it at £54.99, i thought this was the price and then the voucher would make it even cheaper.

edit: for some reason though, the RRP of the Silver is £20 more

nice deal but what rechargable batteries?

Still using my old 3.2 megapixel camera, lol.

Voted Hot, nice spec and price.

i was thinking of gettin it until i read that it wouldnt be very good at gigs. HOT anyway

I like what you did there

Good to know as I was quite confused as the silver has a higher rrp than the black one. Maybe some people will pay a £20 premium for a silver camera over a black one though :?

I agree. It's a great price for a camera of that spec. My uncle bought one of these from Comet and it literaly only took a dozen pictures before the batteries were flat so we took it back (If we had known the battery life beforehand would not of purchased it) So just make sure you get some hi-capactiy rechargeable batteries, otherwise you will be extremely frustrated!

The better deal is the Samsung in a 'false economy' kind of way, & the better camera is the Casio. If you have a little over £100 to spend go for the Casio any day.

Also consider the ]Fuji FinePix F40FD from Play - reviews ]here. Don't forget the ]5% off code + ]4% Quidco.

Buy separately - look on Play for one as they're generally the cheapest.

You think that's bad, I'm still using my old 35mm Olympus sill camera!!! :roll:

Bought silver & extra pack. Voted Hot

There are other features worth thinking about, though. It comes with rechargeable AA batteries, plus a charger:

Great find, just ordered!

I know there are better cameras around that are normally in the same price bracket of £100, but this is only £59.99 delivered. You really can't complain at this price, and extra batteries and a charger are cheap too.

No it doesn't. You have to buy the charger and batteries seperately.

i was only quoting what it says here about it ?

pcpro.co.uk/lab…tml

2nd section from bottom ??


[SIZE="4"]There are other features worth thinking about, though. It comes with rechargeable AA batteries, plus a charger:[/SIZE] if the batteries run out in the middle of nowhere it's possible to pop in non-rechargeables - not something you can say about most lithium-ion cameras. We also like the 2.5in TFT, which is good for framing and reviewing shots, and the S85 is also unusual in that it offers full manual control. In this mode, shutter speeds can be set from 1/2,000th of a second to 15 seconds, and there are two stops of aperture available: f/4.9 and f/2.8. But, as an overall package, it just doesn't hang together as well as the Nikon or Canon.

Well I was reading from the actual product page on Play in which there is no mention of a charger or rechargeable batteries. And, in fact, 7 of the 11 reviews (from both the silver and black options) mention the fact that anyone buying it should get some rechargeable batteries, suggesting that it doesn't come with any.
