£150 Digital Camera at Argos

HELP
I have £150 of vouchers for Argos and I want to buy a Camera. I need it to be the best spec available for the money obviously so I am hoping there will be someone with this knowledge.
Rep added for best advice
TIA

If in the end you can't see that perfect camera being sold in Argos, you could always consider selling the vouchers on here and put the £££s to a camera more suited for your purpose. Having vouchers for one shop can be sometimes restricting, when with pound notes the choice and price will become more appealing.

I personally would think of selling them, you'll still get almost there full value. :thumbsup:

Good advice as I am really stuck with their choices

There are quite a few good cameras under £150 on the Argos site, made by Canon, Sony etc.

This Canon IXUS 85 IS is £147 and is a really nice camera which takes excellent photos.

Excellent review below (It says "The Canon IXUS 85 IS is simply one of the best pocket cameras on the market. You do have to pay a bit more for this camera than for some other models, but the picture quality, style and build quality make it worth the extra money")

Scroll down and see the mostly good reviews on the amazon site

yeah nor probs, just give a shout once youve done some research. Got 10x optical zoom too!

To be honest, when you're spending that much money, you really want to get the camera that you want! Some of the questions you should be asking yourslef are: -
Do I want a small compact camera that I can slip into my pocket, or is size not such an issue?
Do I want a camera that uses ordinary AA rechargeables (never use alkaline's they last a dozen photos at most) or a custom Li-ion rechargeable battery?
Am I bothered about a large optical zoom lens? (most cameras have 3-4x zoom, but you may prefer higher - my canon A720is has 6x which is more useful to me than the 3x that my previous camera had.
Are you likely to take mainly outdoor, indoor or a mixture of both? Some cameras are much better than others inside and in low light.
Are you only ever going to point and shoot or would you like to have a bit more creative input?

The main thing to remember is to pretty much ignore the number of megapixels - anything above 6 is fine, and you really should stick to one of the decent brands. When you narrow it down then check some of the online review sites (Steve's Digicam's is very good) and see what they have to say.

I must say, I've been very happy with my 3 Canon Powershot cameras, which have all produced excellent pictures. Good luck!
