My Fuji packed up and I needed a new camera for my fishing bag.

£9.99 and £3.49 postage got me a 10.2 megapixel Sony DSC-W170 on e-bay.

It's used but in immaculate condition and arrived with the original box, charger, cables and even a 4gb memory card.

I know most people will just use their phones but I prefer a real camera and as a bonus, this model doesn't have a touch screen.

The updated version of his camera is still available with a 20 megapixel CCD and an £80 price tag, so I reckon I did good.

OH Dear, come on Chesters, are you saying that Martin is an indiscriminate flasher, just flashing all over the place? Surely he would be posting reviews up about long  Macintosh Coats. Just sayin

Back in the days.... I used ISO 3200 and 6400 film mainly black & white so I could process myself. It is entirely conceivable that the camera is correctly labelled particularly if it has a ‘n

Good at dusk something that unfortunately few cameras especially phone ones can do without the flash scaring off everything within 50 yards.

I'm no David Bailey by any stretch Ken, but I also use a camera for fishing - just a Nikon coolpix  8 Megapixels & takes video as well - didn't pay much on fleabay, maybe £18 or so??

Spec' says 8.0 Megapixels, VR & ISO 2000, 2.5 inch LCD (what ever all that means)

Takes a decent picture which is all one wants!!

ISO 2000

ISO 200 methinks. ISO 2000 is a standard for IT Service Management.

The problem isn't what people don't know, it's what they know that just ain't so.

Well it clearly states ISO 2000 on the Camera Logo!! I have the Camera in front of me. Maybe IT Service Management means I can do what I like with the Images??

(Which I can - & Do!!)

Then it is a mis-print. ISO 200 is the equivalent film speed.

OK, so all hail to the Gospel of corydoras - Nikon, who are a world leading, or certainly competing photographic company - Can't even emblazon the CORRECT Camera Spec' on their product!!

It's been a few years now since the "Japs" got it wrong!!

My fishing cameras normally live in a Systema type plastic box wrapped in a piece of roller towel.

Keeps them dry and protects them from knocks.

I used ISO 3200 and 6400 film mainly black & white so I could process myself. It is entirely conceivable that the camera is correctly labelled particularly if it has a ‘night’ or ‘sports’ setting.
