Most likely. My store hasn't carried this camera in well over a year.

OP, why did they write final sale? Did you buy the floor model?

What is the SDM sku or product UPC number? Where in the East GTA?

TIA

I figured even budget p&s cameras would shoot videos in 4k in 2019. Nope.

Don't get any 1/2.3 sensor point and shoot. You cellphone will take better pictures. In 2019 you either get a camera with minimum 1 inch sensor, or just use your cellphone.

You have no clue about photography
The size of the sensor is not so important as you think

Don't be so harsh, it's not a bad generalization. I just bought, and returned, a Panasonic ZS60k I bought on Black Friday. The quality in all lighting conditions, all fstop were nowhere near on par with my two year old cell phone. I would tend to agree with don't bother with anything under 1" sensor if you're phone has any reasonable camera in it. It's not gospel, but as I said, not a bad generalization.

This a 2016 model. It preforms poorly when is comes to low light. I would pick a modern flagship phone over this camera when it comes to taking pictures. Saying that, modern cameras with decent lenses should take better pictures. Just not this one.

Saw this model 3 weeks ago at my local store for 90$ (Quebec City)
The 12x zoom and size were really attractive for the price and I really debated between this and the Fuji XP140 for 120$.
In the end the Fuji won me over with the water and shock damage resistance and the more up-to-date sensor even if the 5x zoom is pretty basic.

Many, if not most, SDMs have a final-sale policy on all games and electronics.

How about modern camera with kit lens?

That gets to be a more difficult choice. The flagship smartphones now have better software and sensors, but in some situations, there is no substitute to good optics. For me it is easy, I got both. I use a smart phone most of the time, because your best camera is the camera you have on you, and I do not have my lens cameras handy.

Thanks, they didn't have that particular model but I snagged this one in Moose Jaw. It seems to be a good deal.

I used to use a Canon SX540 superzoom before switching to the APS-C Canon M1. The difference in image quality, especially noise control, is night and day. On a 1/2.3 sensor, you can expect insane noise from ISO 400-800. On a APS-C the noise is acceptable until ISO 3200-6400.

Cellphone cameras in 2019 has better denoise algorithm and often uses multiple cameras. They are vastly better than point and shoots now. The only advantage of a point and shoot is it's bigger zoom range. But most shots most people take are at the wide angle anyways.

Any point and shoot with 1/2.3 sensor is a waste of your money. I speak from experience.

Hardly see anyone with P&S anymore, maybe a few older folks on the rare occasion. Phone cameras will outperform them in almost every situation, not due to sensor size but in software algorithms and a.i. processing.

Plus the best camera is the one you always have on you.
