Digital Cameras


Recommended Posts

I want to buy a camera as a Xmas gift, I dont know much about them so can any of you very knowledgable people tell me what I should be looking out for? Is there any particular make I should go for? I dont want to spend a fortune, probably about £60-£70. Thanks :D

Thanks guys. I really like the second one you posted Jimbo and like Jay recommends it has an optical zoom. I'm abit confused though as one of its points it says '10MB internal memory permits shooting without a media card' Does that mean I'd need to buy a media card seperately? :D Are they expensive?

Usually found the Kodak and Fuji ones to one of the best of their price range, photo quality-wise (although Kodak software can be a bit bloatware), for the lower to mid range cameras anyway.

 

Yes, my son's last one was a Fuji, it was quite old (when 2.1 million pixels was top spec)! It was still fine untill we went to watch the touring cars at Donnington, we had torrential rain and the camera was in my son's pocket which filled up with water :D

toonraider, you've got to stop making him wear those plastic shirts.

He's old enough not to spill things on himself now :D
