Best camera for approx. £150?

Preferably a Sony T series or Canon Ixus series (ie thin and discreet..), would like to get a 5MP+ digital camera for around £150 if possible...

I have an old 4MP canon ixus i (no optical zoom), been lending it to my g/f for a while.. her birthday coming up so thought would buy her her own digital camera.

Cheers to all for any suggestions!!


I was snooping around but coukdn't find any Sony T series, but I did find this 6MP camera within your budget:


Canon Ixus wise, I did manage to find a 5MP Camera within your budget:


It appears to be the only thin and discreet one within your budget that I can find..

Great, thanks for your help!

Polak, if you are willing to spend a wee bit extra, the Canon Ixus 60 got excellent reviews across the board, but it comes up around £180 - £190.

Just some food for thought.

If you go for the ixus posted above at Robert Dyas, there is a code for £5 off in the voucher section you can use. Quidco pay 5% also.

will bear in mind.. thanks for all your help guys!

[SIZE=2]I would highly recommened the Fuji FinePix F10, I bought this camera for my girlfriends birthday 6 months ago and its still one of the best compacts around.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]Its 6.3 Megapixels and produces some amazing results. It also has a very broad ISO range (80 - 1600) which means that you can take pictures in any light, from very dark to the sunniest day.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]I spent almost a month researching cameras before I settled on this and this was the winner by far. [/SIZE][SIZE=2]You can pick up this camera for under £150 from Amazon with free delivery and I gaurantee you wont be dissapointed:[/SIZE]

Hi I have found a Sony T5 for you. It's a little more than your budget it's £166 + £5 delivery. I got my T5 camera from them a while ago (I paid quite a bit more than this grrrr) But anyway they are a good company to deal with!!

Hope this helps



This camera is 5m pixels - more than enough for pic sizes up to A4
It has plenty of features and a stability setting inbuilt
Is Amatuer Photographics compact of 2006
all in all was £149 from dixons including delivery and a 5% NHS discount (code NHS192)

I would recommend going to currys to try a few out first to see how they feel and look before buing on the net.

I had trouble deciding which one to buy as well - and too many suggestions confuses things.
