What Digital Camera

Post by Guest 15244 »

Looking for a digital camera for around the £400 mark

No real experience in the camera market, but would like one that has zoom functions and a memory card that is not going to cost a fortune or be oscelete tomorrow!

Added bonus would be the ability to take small video clips with sound.

Brother in Law has Sony P5 i think, seen that and impressed but it been out a while

Cheers

Simple answer - Fuji S304.

£338 from internetcamerasdirect.co.uk and you get all the guff with it. Loads of optical zoom, 3.1Mp - perfect for your price range.

Memory cards a steal from 7dayshop.com

Can't go wrong, sunshine.

Cheers people, I appreciate the advice, I like the idea of the Sony as the memory stick seems like a more versatile media.

Looking at the site I liked the idea of the P9, think the credit card is gonna take a battering, and one more thing, is this site a good place to buy cameras and what is the CS like in the case of a problem?

I bought the Cannon S30, Its got top reviews on http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/S30/S30P.HTM
http://www.dcresource.com/
and
http://www.steves-digicams.com/2001_reviews/canon_s30.html

3.2MP, 3x optical and as many manual controls as you would need. Build quality is superb andoh one last thing IT TAKES GREAT PICTURES :thumbs:

I got Jessops to price match camera direct and got it for £352.99 (they had it at £469 !), a bargain if ever there was one.

I agree with vinny...I got the S-30 and it's a great camera(although it's been out a while now), do a price search on internet, print the page off and Jessops should price match it
