Digital Cameras

I'm looking to buy my first Digital Camera (yes, I know, but it took me years to catch onto CDs and DVDs too).

 

Can anyone give any advice on brand / considerations?

 

I don't want to spend too much - under £100 if possible (have been told you can still get decent cameras and pics for that price).

 

Cheers!

Fuji or a Canon. I'm on the look out for new one as well TBH...

Ooh, good site. Cheers, Rummy. I'm currently trawling through amazon adding cameras to my wishlist, and was wondering how I would narrow it down....I have about 30 in there with good price, good reviews and good MPs, etc.

Try this site, a good selection. Try to ignore the need for a higher pixel camera, you wont need it. Yes its true the higher the mega pixal the better quality of picture, but you wont be able to tell the difference between a 3, 5 or 10 megapixal camera.

 

The Fuji A500 is a very good buy, 80 squid you get a memory card and case, bargain. I bought this camera for the wife for xmas and she loves it. You need a camera with ease of use, some can be a mindfield of technology, but there is a wide choice.

A few things to look out for, make sure the camera has a view finder( the thing you look through) This saves on batteries, if you only have the lcd screen to view a photo through your batteries wont last very long. Also note the cameras at this price seem to be small ( maybe just a bit bigger than a mobile phone) so they can be quite fiddly.

 

Anyway happy hunting, I remember my first digi camera at around 100 squid, it wasnt long till I upgraded to a better one at about 150 squid, now im on a digital SLR at 600 quid plus new lenses at 200 quid a throw so can become a very expensive hobby.

 

I only love pictures ;)

Ta. I went for a cheapish one - seems simple enough to use. It's a Canon summat. Was 70-odd quid from Amazon.

 

I wanted one for ont Beardy Bus tomorrow. But being a mong, I bought the wrong memory card to go in it, so it will only save 15 pics. :angry: .

Eh! Masses of difference.

 

I have a 3.1 megapixel, (ages old) but have also used a 10 megapixel for landscape piccies. What a difference!!

Although. maddog won't need quite that resolution for taking pics of drunk up latics fans on the Beardybus. :P

I stand corrected. What I did mean to say was for an average piccy it doesnt matter what pixel it is, unless you take pictures for a profession like say Shaun from the club who takes them for the progame and the club website, now there is where you need a high pixel camera.
