But drops to 800mA (high setting) when charging two.Edit:If it's the same charger as the one in this video , then it's very slow at charging.[Video] Skip to 1:51 to see the output values.1 battery 700mA 2 batteries 500mAI'll stick with what I've got.


tbf your charger (which comes without batteries) is a very different device
it seems to require a higher power source ie mains or car charger and so should be expected to have a higher power and charge speed.
not as versatile though

your currents are at the higher charge speed (selectable) which is more likely to cause battery wear.
the low setting isn't so far off these
Same price for non-prime. I don't have Prime. Just ordered for £17.99 delivered.

Didn't last long, I was trying to make my mind up during the weekend which to choose(I had already received the mki), Mon afternoon I checked one more time the camera price buster site and saw that price. On Park Camera site, it was atm the higher price, so I thought it was a misprice. Just before go to bed I check one last time and it was the lower one, so I ordered it straight away.

Probably that day the price fluctuated couple of times and didn't notice it but I got lucky in the end . Otherwise I would have kept the mki from amazon.

I ordered the mki+kit lens for £619 initially, but park cameras drop the price of the mkii body at £760(after cashback) for a day, so I got that one instead. If you're not on tight budget, Imo the additional features worth the extra quid.

the fact that its cheapest (even though it wasn't) on a single day even though that price is higher than normal is utterly irrelevant anyway!

I've purchased this camera under this deal. It's had really good reviews, and I've seen it in action and would have to agree.

In regards to the suggestion of going with the Samsung nx3000 deal instead, I'd have to disagree. That camera has auto focus issues.

The a5100 would be my ideal choice, but its a bit more, and I'm not so in to photography that the difference between the two would be a deal breaker.

Warning note - Item 30 - Play.com Terms & Conditions.All electrical … Warning note - Item 30 - Play.com Terms & Conditions.All electrical products are covered by a twelve month manufacturer's warranty. If your product develops a fault while under warranty, please contact Play.com and we will advise you where to send it for repair. It is a "return to base" warranty therefore there will be a delivery charge to return the product back to the relevant UK service centre.Many other retailers have a policy to offer repair / replacement of items under the 12 month guarantee (including return postage) and therefore offer a better service.



I see that you've been posting this in every electrical item post for Play.com.

It reads pretty self explanatory, but at the same time seems a little unlikely. Most often the retailer passes you to the manufacturer and the manufacturer handles things in their way. Play.com is big, but I don't think it's big enough to organise contracts on all electronics they buy not to include return postage/collection and therefore acquire the goods at a discounted price. Logging/differentiating the serial numbers at the manufacturers end so they ring up as Play.com - make the customer post at own cost - would be costly and not worth the hassle on less expensive items.

Have you experienced this situation first hand with Play.com?
