When you say "cheap" - what's your budget?

erm i would say nomore than £80 or do you not think that is enough?

we got my OH's mum and dad a 12mp fujifilm camera from tesco last week for £67 and they had them in red black and silver...best price i could see anywhere for 12mp! only down side is its batteries, but u could always just get rechargable ones!

EDIT: sorry it was silver black or pink (not red) link : direct.tesco.com/q/b…spx

hope this helps

That sounds like a great deal i have batteries in mine and there is only duracell that powers it for longer than a couple of hours maybe rechargeable ones are a good idea.

Thanks

there is a good deal on the kodak m381 in boots for £99.99.

it has 5x optical zoom
12mp
rechargeable battery
smart capture - making it really easy to take pictures

you should check it out.

i will thanks i cant seem to find any cameras with adapter with decent charge life.

You should be able to get quite a good little camera with £80.

There are two side to the battery debate - I've got one camera that takes batteries, so I have a few sets of high power rechargables and always carry a spare set. Or I have a camera that has a charger to fit to the camera and charge it in situ - and I want to buy a spare for that so I've always got one ready and in reserve.

I wouldn't get too hung up on the battery thing!

thanks i just thought maybeit would save money in the long run but never see ones with chargers anymore.

It's not the latest model and racks up 'only' 6Mp (still more than you'll probably ever need though) but the Panasonic FX10 is a top class camera, easy to use, good quality lens, great results in pretty much all conditions, quality metal body.

Here it is at Amazon for £79.99 + £10.45 p&p amazon.co.uk/gp/…er=

but you can also get it from seller Tophandys Ltd (who have excellent feedback) on the Amazon Marketplace for £69.99 + £4.39 p&p.

It has a rechargeable Li-ion battery too.

I've been looking for a 12mp cheap camera for my sister-in-law.
Fuji finepix j30 12mp (silver,black or pink) lithium rechargeable batteries £89.99 at amazon, or the same spec camera different model fuji finepix j32 (silver, black or red) lithium rechargeable batteries for £79 but I'm afraid I can't remember off the top of my head where that one is from at present.

Edit.just remembered the j32 was at argos for £79 so if bought before 1st nov you'd get a £5 voucher.
