small thin lightweight camera wanted - rep will be left for all posters

I got a camera back in May, its a samsung one 8 million megaxpixels but its too big and rechargeable batteries only last a few mins before camera is dead.

So now looking for a small thin lightweight compact digital cam, about 8 million megapixels and no more than £80. I have seen an olympus one in currys for £68.49, X15- seems nice, but not sure. How about kodak ones? Which brands best? I also need one with an lithium ion battery as I dont want to have to recharge the batts every 2 mins!

Thanks. Rep will be left for all posters.

DONT buy a camera that takes two AA or AAA batteries because they dont last long.

Try to get one that has a Lithium Ion battery. These are the batteries they use in video cameras.

They are vary small and thin, and tend to last AGES once they are charged up.

A lot of small cameras nowadays are using Lithium Ion batteries.

The Nikon Coolpix S210 is an elegant, slim 8.0 megapixel compact featuring image stabilisation to reduce shake, red-eye removal function, 2.5-inch LCD monitor with an anti-reflection coating, 15 scene modes and many more useful features.

Main Features:


8.0 megapixel resolution keeps images sharp when printing complete or just from selected areas, even in large format.
Ultra-slim body: 18mm with elegant and durable aluminum finish.
2.5-inch high-resolution LCD monitor with protective acrylic panel to help reduce scratches and fingerprints, and an anti-reflection coating to enhance visibility in bright sunlight.
High ISO (2000) light sensitivity reduces the risk of blurred results with fast-moving subjects or in low light by enabling faster shutter speeds.
EXPEED image processing concept for optimum performance and maximum image quality.

Electronic Vibration Reduction combats the effects of camera shake to maintain clarity even in low light.

15 scene modes offer optimized settings for popular photographic styles, effects and locations.

There is a web site "Steves digicams" where he reviews digital cameras.

It is an American site, so some of the cameras may not be available here, or have different numbers.

Here is his list of "best" cameras, scroll down till you find the section "Ultra compact - Pockatable"

http://www.steves-digicams.com/best_cameras.html

You can be sure that any camera on his list has had a good review and will be worth buying.

Steves Digicams has the Nikon Colpix S210 on his list of "best" ultra compact cameras.

He give it a good summing up here

http://www.steves-digicams.com/2008_reviews/nikon_s210_pg5.html

Seems to be slightly over your budget, at a tad under £100, but Nikon are a good make and their top of the range cameras are the choice of the pro photographers.

Amazon price here

Firstly, don't get hung up on mega pixels. The size of the sensor on compact cameras mean that pretty much anything over 6 MP is a waste of space (or worse as the spacing of the pixels on high MP count cameras too often leads to poor picture quality).

Makes: Canon, Olympus, Nikon, Panasonic and Sony are probably the most consistently reliable in quality of all the brands. Followed by the likes of Fuji, and Kodak and rounded off with Praktica, Kodak etc. Generally speaking the price is a pretty good indication of what you're going to get.

My advice would be to try and find an older version of one the top brands' models with a lower MP count.

Something like - Sony DSC-W110 available from Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0013IWYAC/pr-electronics-21/ref=nosim, Comet http://www.comet.co.uk/shopcomet/product/443751/SONY-DSC-W110 and John Lewis http://www.johnlewis.com/230474498/Product.aspx?source=35735 for between £80 and £90 would seem to be perfect. Metal bodied, ample MP, 4 x zoom, Li-ion battery. These are great little cameras and slip easily into any pocket.

When there's a Sony for this sort of money don't waste your time with Kodak or Fuji.

I got my brother the sony cybershot w130 from amazon, about £89 now I think. A small/compact cute little camera which comes in various colours. Great reviews, has all the latest gadgety things like face recognition and smile recognition and after having a sony cybeshot, a samsung, kodak and casio, my sony is by far the best of the bunch for picture quality.
