What`s the best camera available from Boots in the UK?

Discussion in 'Digital Cameras' started by Simon Finnigan, Jul 25, 2004.

  1. A weird question I know, but I`ve got a load of points to spend there, and
    was wondering what the best camera is. Basically money no object, but it
    MUST be from boots.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

  2. I'd go for the Olympus C-765 Ultra Zoom, or the Fuji FinePix S5000 Zoom.
    Both have great zoom (10x), but the Oly has 4MP while the Fuji "only" has
    3MP.
    (3MP is OK for most "home users")

    Fuji feels nicer in hand, but the Oly gives you more.
    It all depends on the intended use for the camera.

    Go to www.pricerunner.com and compare them.

    Gawd knows - hows about you telling us what they sell and maybe we can offer
    opinions on those.

  4. I was in a while ago, and didn`t see the S5000. I seem to remember a 5400,
    but what they have instore seems to vary, and has nothing to do with what`s
    on their website. Essentially cost is no object since the points are
    already there, more than enough to cover any digicam. I know boots is
    overpriced for camera stuff, but overpriced with points is essentially free,
    so I don`t mind :)

    I`ve already got 2 x 3MP cameras, the Canon A70 and the Powershot 300. Both
    are nice cameras, but I`d like "more" really. More features, a bigger lens
    to allow quicker exposures mainly, that kind of thing. More pixels would be
    very nice, but with a 10x optical zoom there is more leeway for zooming in.
    I wish they did a proper top of the line digital SLR, that`d be lovely :)

    neither of which has image stabilization which I would think would be very
    worth while in an ultrazoom. How about the Panasonic FZ10 (12x) or the
    Canon S1 IS (10x) both with OIS.

  6. I`ll make a note of those and have a look in boots to see what they have
    available. I really fancy a GOOD camera, but I`m limited to what Boots
    sell. The alternative is to stand by a till,buy stuff for people on points
    and get the cash, to then spend elsewhere on a camera. That`s a lot of
    messing about though :)
