Have corrected the title as I only spotted it after I had posted it - oops.

Why the cold votes! Great price!


Why the cold votes! Great price!

Agreed. I was tempted to post this myself. Good camera and over £50 cheaper than anywhere else, as far as I can see. Hot!

Just ordered mine. Wow what a great deal. Was waiting for the price to come down but its always been around 200 quid mark. With this offer and quidco its down to 135

quidco is 10%

Original Poster

When I clicked through from Quidco it was 7% but it has tracked at £15 (10%). Even more pleased now if I get the £15 too.


I'd like it at that price!

if you want to buy it off me your welcome

Recently got this camera from Play for £84.99. Was obviously a mis-price but they honoured it (and for a work colleague too.) Straight after ordering it went up to £299!

Great camera for low light/night shots but can look pretty 'smeary' when viewed at 100% - sort of watercolour effect. Good video mode though.

A bargain if you can get it for £135.

Great price



I've already PM'd you about this too.ThanksMartin

OK. You three really need to take a look at this
Dealing outside of FS is not allowed and neither is dealing via PM

Surprised this hasn't got more heat

I'm a bit of technophobe but can some explain to me whether or not this is a better deal especially if im not interested in video..

Edited by: "manoir" 20th Nov 2010

I would say not, the TX5 has the new Exmor R sensor for low light shots without flash, its also waterproof , dust + shock proof, and can shoot 10 frames per second in full res.

Also 14mp on a small sensor can make images worse as they block out light,personally i think 10mp is plenty thats why Sony have gone for quality rather than mega-pixels on this model

I got mine delivery today and have been playing around with it, can post up some images if interested

offer is back @ £149.99 + 10% quidco.
