Again! Argos keep trying to push this stuff. It's not awful but I bet most of them get left at home because they are too big to lug around and a camera which isn't with you won't take good pics! No viewfinder either - which would have helped justify its size.

Think hard before splashing your cash: I'm all for encouraging people to take photography more seriously but this really isn't the right (type of) camera for most people.

For just a little more money you can get something like a Panasonic TZ60 travel zoom which takes great pictures, has a big zoom and still fits in a pocket. Regularly drops below £200 as it's an older model.

This won't be a great camera tbh. The lenses on these low end bridge cameras are pretty rubbish.

You'd be better off buying a similarly priced point and shoot with less zoom IMO. Beginner or not.

I expect it's not of much use for any serious photographers but everyone has got to start somewhere! I also think it would be useful perhaps for family pictures and the like. Most decent compacts are potentially only a bit cheaper with neither of the freebies!


Goes from a useful 24mm to over 1000mm. Sample pics in photography blog look good. Even CA isn't to bad

It's been many years since I owned a bridge but I will offer my advice, especially if you're viewing as a beginner camera.

I bought a bridge after enjoying my compact cam and wanting to get into photography a bit more. Thought a bridge would be ideal. They look like an SLR and have similar layout and control dials. After I bought it, I found myself very disappointed. The pictures were actually poorer than my previous Panasonic compact. Low light stuff was dreadful, noisy and nasty. That wasn't the worst though, I realised there was nothing my bridge could do the compact couldn't, apart from the mental optical zoom. But it didn't matter, it just didn't take the photos I wanted. I then bought a cheap entry level Sony SLR, after selling the bridge. I was in a different world and wished I'd just gone to SLR first.

I don't know much about this camera, perhaps it's very good for what it is. However, save a bit more and about £130 later you've a decent entry level DSLR.

tough decision

I was looking at this for a few days but the £30 code wasn't working 'til now.

great price for this bridge camera but it sits in the middle and under performs both compact and dslr kind of the worst of both worlds slow at wide angle and zoom

I think there are better options for your money even at £200

I have actually got a Nikon bridge camera and to be honest the firmware is so bad it's really embarrassing. Doubt that this one could be any worse.

If you're in the market for something like this I'd far sooner buy an ancient SLR and lens on eBay - this will be total crap.

This camera has won dozens of awards and doesn't require half a dozen additional lenses.

No longer available.

Does this come with any of the accessories shown, it shows a fancy wind shielded external microphone, what appears to be a hot shoe mounted flash?
Brilliant carl zeiss lens!. But which has a true focal length of 8.8-220.
Not sure I would trust Amazon with a refurbished, the lens being such a critical part 'limited to no signs of use' Of course you could send it back, but..

For the amount of kit you are getting here, incorporating the discount, this is a super hot deal (providing it is A standard).

Didn't come on here to buy a camera. I now have one on its way. Damn you HUKD.

This lense is massive compared to any dinky little phone lense, and you will see much higher quality pictures)- 4 frames a second burst is very good if you need it- 112mm wide angle is handy- 720p recordings is very good and what I usually record anywayalll for only £99.99... yeah it's hot.



​The physical size of the sensor is the important factor, not the number of pixels. The one in this camera is more than a 6x crop on a full frame sensor, so you will get very noisy results, but at least there's an optical zoom and focal length advantage over a smart phone.

He'd just gorged himself on a kill so was sleeping it off. I have a load of shots, I'll share later. There's a nice comparison where the guide used an SLR (but with a cheaper lens) versus this.

This was a good price,although personally I would recommend spend more and get a compact that slips in your jeans pocket and it will give similar results with 1080p video....

Had a Sony hx10v for nearly 4 years,not really missed the zoom being only 16x on mine,but the pictures and especially the video is great,use it a lot for motorsport events.

just my 2 pence worth.

I'll say it again, no good having an all singin all dancin DSLR with mingy lens and pouring over settings and quality when you don't actually get the photo in the first place..
I have been in the same boat as RXP91 and got shots of animals from afar with superzoom bridge cams, of which I have missed out on with a DSLR in the past..
For safari and anywhere you need to zoom in close, unless you have £10G and want to cart a lens longer than your arm around with you, these superzoom bridge cameras are just great!

Anyone know of any similar bridge camera deals?

Do you know what? You don't need anything half this big for full HD quality vlogging! Just look around at the little compact ones - most of them (if not all) record in full HD. The little Sony one I have for my YouTube filming even has a stereo mic. There's absolutely no need to spend this much on one for vlogging - most also even have the little tripod mounting screw at the bottom too. And almost all are wifi too - that isn't restricted to the bigger ones anymore. It sounds like a case of buying more than you need.

This isn't the bridge I would choose but the vast majority of people that want decent cameras aren't ones that wish to have full bodied SLRs, pay the price for them or lug all the crap about you need to get varied shots.



I'm not a camera snob, im fully aware that a lot of people dont want an overcomplicated camera and just want something a bit better than their phone, and that's absolutely fine. I just don't like brands shoving point & shoot internals into arbitrarily large bodies just to make them look more pro to beginners without any tangible benefits beyond ergonomics. I literally ran into this problem last month when a member of family wanted to buy his girlfriend a camera to get better quality shots for her makeup business. He ended up dropping over £300 on a bridge which was solely differentiated from a £100 P&s by its 50x zoom, but he chose it because of the way it was marketed by Canon and because it looked like my old SLR. I'm not saying people should only buy expensive cameras, I'm saying people shouldn't buy what is essentially a bog standard compact with a jacked up price tag simply because it looks like your cousin Harry's cool DSLR.

Are you replying to the wrong person maybe? I haven't mentioned travel compacts.

I'm a massive Canon fan.....but this is not one of their better efforts

For a camera which is relatively new camera....first released only 8 months ago....the fact that it is being so heavily discounted should tell you a great deal....

It really is basically a compact with a long zoom lens (and a slow one at that....f3.5 - f6.6)

It lacks most of the SLR features that Bridge camera users should be expecting.....there is no option to add an external flash to boost the poor built in one's range.....the deal breaker will any bridge camera for me would have to be the lack of a viewfinder....making using in bright light difficult & the lcd screen on this one is not articulated & at 230dpi is very low resolution...

Not offering 1080p video on a 2016 model is also truly unforgivable

So pay more for poorer quality; extra mega pixels in the same size sensor to be avoided I think.

A similar amount spent on a good compact would suit far better. I'm convinced these bridge cameras must sell largely to people who think they're getting a 'bargain DSLR' because it's a similar shape!

BUT that is where the similarities end ....... most people involved with photography will agree that cramming masses of pixels onto a small sensor simply means less light reaches each photoreceptor ..... the result being poor low light results & high noise even at low ISO.....in fact it has been shown that the some phone cameras perform better in low light than these bridge cameras

You would actually get better image quality from an old Canon 300D with it's 6Mp sensor (with a nice 2nd user 3rd part lens like a sigma) than many of these bridge cameras & you can pick some decent ones in good used condition for virtually pennies

Never had a proper camera before so great to learn with but far better than expected and zoom is amazing, no issues with lens cap. Phone cams are great and handy but you cant beat a dedicated camera. Well chuffed, need to find a case now... ebay here I come.
