New Camera?

New job. New shoes. New haircut. New camera...

My old camera, a Canon PowerShot A40, 2.0 mega pixels, 3x zoom, weighs a bloody ton, a blow to the head with that camera could kill someone!

Anyway hast served me well but I want a new one. Any recommendations? My budget is around 150 quid. I'm a point and shoot kind of gal.

Hello Mary,

Hope your well. I too am looking for a digital camera and you must go the this website - www.dabs.com. I have bought various things from them before & think their prices are best. I had a wee look & found these 3 which are brill - think I will buy the sony one but you should have a look anyway.
1. Canon Powershot A530 Digital Camera 5mp

2. Sanyo Xacti VPC S7 - 7 megapixel for £100!

3. Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S650 - 7.2 megapixel for £110.00

Happy Hunting!
Give my love to all. Can't make it back for Hannahs birthday as I can't get time off work - on training course but am back the weekend after - back Thursday 19 @ night so see you soon!

The Canon Powershot A540 is well reviewed (http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/read_opinions.asp?prodkey=canon_a540) and seems to fit the bill.

I'd avoid Dabs, no offence to Mel, they're OK until something breaks then they are a nightmare for aftercare or returns.

At any rate do go to Jessops or Currys or anywhere on the high street and pick the camera up and use it a bit even if you do want to buy of t'internet.

uch balls. Unfortunately beowulfs advice was just read now - after I bought a camera from Dabs. Damn them - they better be pains in the a'holes or they will feel my wrath.
Happy camera hunting anyway!
