Poundland Digitals – 1- Fujifilm DX-10

I’ve looked at picking up film cameras for peanuts before on this site. I thought I could see what I could get for a pound or less in digital cameras. The DX-10 is a 1999 early consumer model came through the door for just 99p before postage. But is this camera that once cost £250 worth a look ?

A Budget Bridge Or Pier To Nowhere- Fujifilm FinePix S3000 review

it’s 2003 and film is still King but the slide towards Digital dominance was starting. Consumer digital cameras were becoming the norm rather than a rarity. And S3000 was the latest of Fujifilm’s budget bridge numbers. But 17 years later is it worth a gander as budget bridge ?
