It's been about this price (£119.99) at Argos for some time. But voted hot.
is this any good for taking pics or is it better for vids
Just my 2p worth,I made the mistake of buying a Panasonic camcorder thinking it would be a good upgrade to my Sony hx10v compact,bad mistake missed slipping it my jeans pocket and the video was poor on the camcorder and dire pic quality.
how much is delivery though?

If no Stock Argos has this
The sensor is tiny, so I would expect the image to be quite grainy unless lighting is excellent.
Is this better than using an iPhone or a Samsung Galaxy?
Struggle to use the usage of these now for public users
I've got this and to be honest it's not the best quality picture. Hot for the price though as mine cost me more
Sounds like the picture quality is worse than a typical smart phone, but you get a large zoom range.
Good price for this. Voted hot
No Wifi . Really annoying how so many camcorders have no port for external microphone.

Would appreciate if anyone has experience of this :
