Hi fellow Hot dealers,

I am after some advice on purchasing a digital camera :santa:

We have a point and click digital camera at the moment which is good for the "moment shots", however the Mrs. is getting more into abstract photography. My idea is to get her a half decent digital camera that will produce good macro photos and also distance scene shots. Exchanging lens & filters would be a good option.

Any tips on who to choose. Budget at £250-£300

[SIZE="3"]Hi stephenr,
I bought the Canon Powershot A570IS for £85.98 delivered. Below is the link to the website. It costs £103.99 plus £6.99 delivered. However, Canon are doing a cashback promotion on certain cameras - which in this case is £25. That means that you can get this camera for £85.98. This camera normally costs about £150 as it really is an excellent camera.

I'd also suggest paying £4.99 for the two year extended warranty option. It's only a loss of £4.99 if you never need to use it and a saving of £££s if you do.

This cashback promotion is only on till the 27th November, so don't think about it for too long. And, it is packed with loads of features and is thererfore, highly recommended! :thumbsup:[/SIZE]
