Hi all, Please be gentle with me as this is my first deal post, came across this deal with asda store for Sony DSC T70 digital camera at an awesome price of £79! This camera is @£79 from £149 ( reduced to clear).
This 8.1 megapixel Sony T70 digital camera features a 3x optical zoom lens and 6x digital zoom with 6.33-19.0mm(38-114mm) focal length to enhance picture quality. The Sony T70 is equipped with a face recognition function that detects the face of a subject and automatically adjusts the focus and brightness to deliver a clearer image, while the image stabiliser reduces blurring. This digital camera can also record video with sound. The 3" wide LCD touch screen allows for clear viewing and navigation of the controls. The T70 has a 32MB memory. Accessories include a Li-ion battery, battery charger, multi cable, wrist strap, paint pen and PC application.

what store did you find this?

its in crewe (cheshire) store.

I bought this camera at full price a year ago. I don't recommend it whatsoever. My Sony camera that I had before it (DSC-W1), which was stolen, was much, much better.

You are paying for style over substance. The camera is too small to have a decent lens, and I've seen much better pictures from older, cheaper cameras with many less megapixels than this one.

The flash is far too bright and ruins all night time photos (even when you turn it down). It has really poor performance in low-light conditions.

DON'T GET THIS CAMERA. Nothing against Sony. Just this camera.

I am not able to find the deal.

I like to buy one

It is missing a wide angle lens, and that is a make or break point for me. I also hate Memory Sticks, but I could possible get over that, certainly of this price, and if the color reproduction is good.

I received this camera as a gift for Christmas 2007 and I totally love it! – So much so that when I saw this deal I thought about getting another one in case my original was dropped/stolen etc.
This camera is easy to use and takes nice photos and has good video ability – if you in the market for a camera, you could do much worse than this! :thumbsup:

Fair enough, at £150 there might be better deals but that's not what the price is. The next question is, can it be found in any other asda?http://www.cameras.co.uk/reviews/sony-dsc-t70.cfmhttp://www.trustedreviews.com/digital-cameras/review/2008/01/22/Sony-Cyber-shot-DSC-T70/p1http://reviews.cnet.co.uk/digitalcameras/0,39030233,49294101,00.htmhttp://www.cameralabs.com/reviews/Sony_Cyber-shot_DSC_T70/verdict.shtml



Exactly. There have been quite a few adsa deals on HUKD recently and none of which have been avaliable in my local store. And its not due to stock. They just havent been nationwide deals. So not voting cold on this deal but have on the others as they definatly are not avaliable.

Just out of interest, do you know roughly how many they had in stock? :thumbsup:

Good deal but disadvantages of this:
(1) Suffers from extreme red eye. Will have to use software to remove the red eye.
(2) Poor at low light conditions (night time).

All of the above expected from a slim camera.

just tried our store -no stock

right, my girlfriend wants to get me a digital camera for my birthday.

Is this one better (in your opinion) than the samsung l201 from Tesco which is roughly the same price?

Thanks.:thumbsup:

No offence mate but I really wouldnt worry as I dont think you will find this camera for this price anywhere.

told my mum bout this, she lives in crewe and went and got it, last one left (which was ex display) with my auntie's discount came out at £71.10! just what she was after, and she is very pleased so many thanks OP, heat and rep for you, may want to expire this now as i think it is store specific, thanks again!!

Had the dsc-t7 but fell in the pool with it in my pocket last week. Bought a Nikon D60 to replace it but its hardly pocketable so im going to get the missus who's a store manager with asda to find one of these this afternoon.

Would anyone recommend anything similar/better for under a ton?

Sony is a bit clicky. They won't use the omnipresent SD card. That's why I never bother with them. Too much of a headache!

if I can get this from my local asda this deal will be SH** HOT!

there is none of these. boo!

Lowest form of wit.

That aside, yet another absolutely pathetic display of voting. 512 degrees! And how many people have said they've got one? I'll tell you to save you counting. NONE (op excluded).
Pathetic. I despair.

Exactly my point. And I wouldnt say all deals have to be locally avaliable to me, just would be nice if they was avaliable to somebody. Or I might aswell post a deal on here for a mansion and a speed boat for the amazing price of 1p but only avaliable for collection from the planet Mars during the next 12 seconds!

That'd just be silly, it'd have expired by now. If it was in the next 12 days then fair enough, HOT! :roll:

Exactly. It's about as much use as an ashtray on a motorbike!

Asda must have had a clearout of cameras because i got a Canon A1000is for £49, cheapest elsewhere is over £100, it was the display model. I guess its luck of the draw...
