11:15AM, Monday 7th December - Update: - We have just learned that the ‘offer’ we brought news of on Saturday (see below) has been withdrawn. The price has been changed to £329. On top of that, there is a suggestion that the £100 price was incorrect and there is a possibility that Kodak won’t honour orders placed at that price. We’re checking with Kodak UK directly for clarification of the situation, plus with Trading Standards staff for advice on the rights of those who have placed orders and will publish a further update later today. -Ed.
Kodak’s DX3700 digicam may not set the world alight by its specifications, but at the price we have discovered Kodak is offering at today, it is an undoubted bargain.
Jessops current price is £299.90 for this 3 megapixel entry-level camera, but Kodak has it on sale at just £100. And it appears they are throwing in a free 32MB memory card (MMC type, worth about £40 on its own) as well.
The camera is very simple - there is no optical zoom, only a 3x digital one, but it is very easy to use and has Kodak’s Easyshare docking station for one-touch image transfer to your PC. The docking station also recharges the camera’s battery.
We’ve tried the simpler 2 megapixel DX3500, but thought you weren’t really getting enough for the money, but we’d even think a DX3500 was well worth considering for £100, hence our feeling the DX3700 is a real bargain.
We don’t know how long the offer is available for, but if you’re interested, the all important link is:
