    I am looking to buy a new digital camera (non SLR). Anyone got one they could recommend. Less than £300. Not going to be using it for any specialist type pics just common or garden photos.
     
  2. I didn't pay 300 for my Dslr lol.

    I swear by fujifilm, my mum has this camera, and it's been cracking for ages.

    I bought a Canon A480 powershot for £59 in Sainsburys the other day to replace the one I dropped. Reduced from £119 and it does everything I want, good screen and more importantly for touring, it takes 2AA batteries which last for a few weeks or 500 pics. Lithium ones do anyway.

  4. I am using a Canon iS 120 at the moment and the results are good. Previously I had an Ixus 55 - something like that - but too many C/Chat mugshots put paid to it. :biggrin:

    The 120 seemed a bit small in comparison at first, but it hangs around my neck and has snapped everything asked of it. And it is easy to 'interface' with a PC etc...

    That's about 3 times as much as you need to spend. Look at Fujifilm FinePix JV150
     
  6. We've got a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ6, available for about £180 and it takes superb pictures, even in low-light conditions with the flash off. It feels nice and solid in your hand too.

    Nikon S8000.

    Go to your local Jessops with some spare memory cards, ask the assistant if you can run some test shots and video on the S8000 and any of the other cameras mentioned above, then take them home and look at the images from the different cameras in comfort on your own computer.

    You will then go and buy the Nikon S8000. :biggrin:

    Panasonic FX40 is the camera i'd recommend personally for quality and a real bargin due to recent price drops, with knowledge based upon being a technology sales person.
     
  10. My camera is a bit dated now but I like the lenses on Kodak's and being designed for the USA, they're easy to operate ;-)
