Remember you may also need rechargable batteries (if they are AA or AAA), a charger, and a memory card.

Dont buy too cheap a camera as it may well be worse than the pictures he gets from the iphone.

And get one with a decent zoom if he is going to Australia (note optical zoom not digital zoom).

A quick look on the Argos site finds the Fuji JX530 for £70.00. Fuji are generaly a good make (I have a Fuji)

This is 14 mega pixel, and a 5x optical zoom. It also comes with a rechargable battery. Note they do have other colours on the Argos web site.

I have not done any research on this camera, it is just a quick suggestion, but it is the sort of thing you should be looking for I think.

Just looked at the reviews on the Argos web site and they seem pretty god.

I saw this one on Ebay's deals. I've had a Casio Exilim for years and they are very reliable and the rechargable battery it comes with lasts for ages, at least 2 weeks of use! http://****.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270704184986

I have one similar to this and its a great camera, and if you can push the cash def worth buying as you wont get any pics nearly as good for another camera around this price mark and great for distance shots

** EDIT Sorry thought he was linking to this deal which is similar to what i have and the pictures will be a lot better then any compact camera and does great distance shots
