I'd bought a new SD card, and it caused the camera to lock up, wouldn't even switch off! It was a PNY 16Gb, for anyone who wants to avoid buying one.
It's fine now, with an old Fuji 8Gb SD in it.
A good friend of mine also had problems with several PNY cards. I wouldn't touch them with a barge pole.
This was the first I'd ever tried, and only bought it because I was on a limited budget (too far from payday), and it was all my local Currys had in my price range.
I have since replaced it with a 16Gb Sandisk Ultra, which did exactly what it is supposed to do.
Back to the subject of S/H a580's, Ebay UK had two when I looked on Friday, one "buy now" for £500, including kit lens and accessories, and the other on auction, body only, with a highest bid of £200. IF
they were in good condition, they might be worth a bid, as long as the money doesn't get ridiculous, but personally, if I was looking for one, I'd ask someone like Ffordes to find me a VGC++ one, as I trust them with my money.
