I reckon this is an excellent deal on a simple, top brand camera and would be great for your holidays, etc. if you're not a confirmed photography buff or gadget freak. Cheap enough as a spare to leave in your car, etc. And it has 4x optical zoom which is still rare on a cheaper camera . Excellent reviews, scored 8/10 on Pocket Lint when it was £119!

Conclusion from Pocket Lint review:
"First up, do not be put off by the camera only having 5-megapixel sensor. This simply means there are less noise problems to worry about at a given sensitivity and the more manageable file sizes generated means you get more shots onto whatever capacity storage you have in place.
Plus, this camera's retail price of £119 belies a very nice snapping tool that hides a bit extra poke under the bonnet in terms of spec and usability. It may not be the prettiest camera out there and it may not be the fastest, but it takes nice pictures, is easy to use, and is worth every penny at that price."
Compatible with SD and SDHC memory cards - the most economical and most widely available type.
Appeared to be two left in my local Tesco today. Boxed, not ex-display. Presumably same price wherever stock remains.http://www.pocket-lint.com/reviews/review.phtml/2298/canon-powershot-a460-digital-camera.phtml
