I am after a digital camera with about £180 to spend. I have been looking at the HP Photo Smart R707 for £180 which looks to have quite a lot to offer functionality speaking so does anyone out there know of any 'must have' camera for the kind of money I am talking about , any suggestions ? Thanks in advance.
Before you purchase, check places like PC World,Curry's etc as it would appear that a number of camera's from well known companies are being reduced in prices, sometimes by half price. Possibly getting ready for the supply of new model winter stocks!.
I have purchased my last three camers on Internet from the following. Excellent next day service and some very good bargains. Worth a look if only to compare prices, specs etc.. Try this ... click here
Pixmania is a French company with a good reputation.
However, whatever camera you choose, I would suggest getting it from a UK supplier. There can sometimes be problems in obtaining service under the makers warranty when the product is obtained abroad. In such cases the item would probably then have to be shipped at your expense to the supplier outside the UK, (this can be expensive). If you do buy from a foreign based supplier, double check the UK warranty position.
Where did you see it at £180?. This is price summary I just found.
I bought the Olympus 725 recently with 8X optical zoom and 3.2Mp and am pleased with it. My main point however was that after searching all over the internet, I found the best price at Warehouse Express. For at least £10 less than elsewhere, for the camera alone, I got the camera plus a 128Mb xD card thrown in as well. Suggest you look up their website and try there for your camera.
Have a look at the Megxon C480/Yakumo Mega Image 84D/Practica Luxmedia 4008 all the same camera 8X optical zoom plenty of them on eBay or search the web hell of a camera for the money actually made in Taiwan by Megxon - see their website.
