All Bridge Camera Discounts, Offers and Sale - November 2018
i take it you cant angle the flash on this? would have made it much better
I have the original rx100 so I don't know what the m3 is like but it fits in the pockets of my jeans no problem but it is on the upper limit of being okay. I got my parents the g9x and it is noticeably smaller. I highly recommend the g9x it will take decent pictures indoors with no flash and only artificial light or just with day light coming through the Windows.
Great camera especially in low light conditions. Love mine.
Old man M&S with elasticated waist!
(shock) It certainly is a great camera, I never suggested otherwise. It doesn't fit in a normal jean pocket though. Not sure what you're wearing XD
This is the same deal Curry's had in the summer (when I bought my kit). It's a great 'in between' camera (for me it's between my phone and dslr and gets lots of use as there's no setting up). Here is a picture of the moon (last week at sunset) on its auto setting, so you can see the results of its zoom. The craters are visible on the fading edge.
These have always been fantastic little camera's. I have an older one that served me really well.
My phone is a thousand times better than this and cameras are worthless.
Please can we have some people saying that their phone is a thousand times better than this and cameras are worthless.
I have one (when Curry's reduced the price in the summer). The zoom is the main reason I bought it. It's a good little compact. Links to your phone too. Let me know if you have any questions or want to see pictures with the zoom.
wrong question, if you mean 'does this take images of the same quality as my iphone at an equivalent focal length?' then not sure (probably similar though) but that question ignores the whole point of the camera... 40x zoom this is probably a standard price from chinese sellers, dont think you need to rush to get it
Other than the optical zoom, image quality will be about the same.
Will this be better than an iPhone 7 camera ?
Ok, this is the first time I'm posting anything here, I have seem this Canon PowerShot SX730 camera to replace my old Nikon. The specs seems to be really good in a compact, I'm sure this is a must as Christmas is fast approaching.
Why has this expired? it's still a great deal and still on!

At the cost of maximum aperture dropping quickly as you extend the zoom. But then it's considerably cheaper than an RX10
It says £100 on the Panasonic site for Amazon purchase today and I would say that is definitive.
nope just showing that you don't have to be a pervert or bird watcher to use a good zoom.
You’re just showing off about your travel now, nothing to do with the camera. :|
Well I got some amazing shots of machu pichu with my 60x bridge, same with table mountain, christ the redeemer, elephants and other wildlife on safari, distant castles, ships, waterfalls, lava, ruins, lakes and all sorts that I wouldn't have got without it. It's amazing what you can do with a zoom if you expand your mind a little.
Some people don’t need that amount of zoom. I can only think of bird watchers and perverts.
Why would you not want twice the zoom for only 80 quid? That's the main reason for buying this camera.
Is it cheap though? The £60 saving is largely ficticious -- the price was put up to £199 for just 20 days before bringing it back down to £139. Usual Curry/PCW trick: "Was £199.00 (from 18/04/2018 to 08/05/2018)". (mad)
I was being serious tbf.
Don't call me a turnip!
haha just goes to show how easy it is to misinterpret comments on here :D
k well its easy to find a comparison with iphone x - one on dpreview https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison iphone is only real phone there though but can be used as a base
Tried to get this deal and it now costs £324
which one should i go for this one or the Sony Cyber-shot HX400V ?
that is a great price
You buy these kinds of cameras purely for the amazing zoom, e.g.
Thanks, paid £261.93 with the code for new customer and then hopefully will get another £30 back when I register it with Panasonic, therefore £231.93 in total (Fingers crossed). Great Deal 8) .
Have been scammed twice on EBAY ,got my money back ,long process ,sure they will try to scam us here ,price to low lesson learned ! 8)#
Typically it's a "credential stuffing" attack where the database from a less secure website gets leaked and the hacker can log in using the username/passwords of someone who uses the same password on all websites they use, that's why you should use different passwords where possible!
No hard feelings. Thank you...You've just improved my writing " skill" :))
Not a great camera imo, my brother has one
I’d imagine the people this is aimed for would be more comfortable using the 3” screen for their shot compositions
Eh ? (popcorn)
It already comes with a mini tripod. I bought it as my samsung s6 camera wasn't that good.
The picture does show the 40x Optical Zoom but yeh, nice to have it in the description. I have the 610 which is obviously a slightly earlier version but is a great camera for family holidays. Might upgrade it to this one.
The important missing feature listed is the zoom -- it is after all called a superzoom! It's 40x for those interested.
not bad - you'll probably want to buy a head for the tripod though
Bought one couple of weeks ago in store. Very handy, pocket size... still need to learn how to use this beautiful camara.
Good price, but no EVF is a deal-breaker.
OnePlus 5 Bought from BangGood for £360
Is a samsung wb31f comparable to the op camera? I have no interest in cameras on phones just looking for a reasonable camera for taking snaps of birds in my garden and maybe the occasional bug or two so I can zoom in later to see them up close. Thanks in advance for any advice.
Just curious, how much did your phone cost and what is it? serious question.
Yes the TZ-100 as mentioned is one of the best along with the sony rx100m3. Periodically with cashback promos you can buy these for less than £400. This is not quite as powerful a camera as these but was still a good deal https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/canon-powershot-sx720-hs-superzoom-compact-camera-travel-kit-198-currys-2903117 All about needs and budget I suppose... and waiting for a deal.
Only if you can't afford £500 for a phone and require a camera, it would be worth paying a little bit more for something better though. "Struggles in low light, poor video quality, ease of use niggles, imprecise zoom This is a disappointing camera that fails in too many areas. Picture quality is below par and video quality is poor" Should I buy it? No - there are far better cameras at a similar price. Take a look at the Nikon Coolpix S7000 as an alternative - it's a much better option if you're on a limited budget.
Great price, heat! Looks like a nice little compact.
Yea you are right, probably a grey Import also, so next best price is £278. Looks like this has been superseded by the SX730, only difference appears to be a swivel screen, but costs £320.
3rd party, not amazon
Yep, very hot price....if I didn't have a sony hx60v and a sony hx400v I'd be all over this.....love a big zoom!!! Heated up and thanks for posting (y)
£249 at Amazon, seems next best price (without the travel kit). https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B01C2QIS9O/ref=dp_olp_new?ie=UTF8&condition=new
unknown branded memory cards are not to be trusted.
It's not expired
Thanks.I just order 5 for £4.45.
This item is coming up at £14.29
Better than expected maybe, but you're never going to take a good low light shot with this size aperture and a fill-in flash. The superzoom is the main feature of this camera i.e. where most of the cost is focused (no pun intended). If the zoom isn't of interest for most of your work, then you're paying for something you don't need and compromising on what you do.
Oh. And added bonus, download Sony memories app and connect to WiFi wherever you are and photos go straight to your phone via Nfc... (don't care what anyone says, a camera will take a way better pic than a phone... Wife uses FB to upload etc
Beg to differ... Used for party's inside and out and much better than I expected... Now binned the big clumsy canon in favour of this, goes in pocket too... Happy daysssssss 😁
Think about what you want to mainly use it for. These are great for travel photography e.g. mainly outdoor scenes, but if you want to use it for parties and indoor events it will struggle.
I am on the look out for a compact camera too. Can't believe this is 3yrs old...
