Camera advice required. Poss Bridge Camera?

9 replies
Found 25th Apr 2009
I currently have a Dimage x50 snap and shoot camera, but I want to take better photos of our cats.
From what I've read, and the budget i have (sub £70), I would be looking at a limited range of 'bridge cameras'.

I've read about Fuji's S5700 & S5800 but seem to have missed the boat on those deals.
Am i correct in my thinking that these types of camera would improve my photo's, taken both outside and indoors, mainly close-ups?

I've just seen a Kodak ZD710 within my budget, but not many mentions of that model on here.

Can anyone verify I'm on the right tracks, or point me in the right direction, or is my budget to small to significantly improve my photo's?

Many Thanks

Yeah, all ready saw they were out of stock, but didn't realise they come back in stock often.
Will keep an eye out - rep to both.

I got the 8100 from there and so happy with it. If you want to get long shots to i would try to strech to the 8000

Cheers, I see Jessops sell the 8100, so might go down there and give it a test-drive.
Just wish Fuji would get their refurbs back in stock.
Rep added btw.

Thats cool, the 8100 & 8000 are more or less the same to hold & feel, and the 8000 is £100 while the 8100 is £140.
Let us know what one you choose

I think i may have doubled my budget on seeing the S2000HD. (sounds rather Honda'ish lol)
Certainly will be buying a Fuji, but aggggghh which one? lol

Ok, just took the plunge and ordered the 8100.
Used the 30% off code for Additions Direct which came to £133.43 delivered, plus i should get 8% quidco. I'll obviously get the super-warranty from Fuji, though no rush just yet.

So..... can anyone put me at ease with my decision, is it the preferred model, and was it the right price?
Dutch courage needed before i tell the wife!
