Digital Camera (Budget of £250)

Dear All:

I have been always planning to buy a decent digital camera with high specs and I believe its time has arrived.

I have got a budget of £250. Can you please advise on what to buy?

Many thanks

Have a look at this ^^^^^^ thread. It's quite long - you might want to start from the end but there's a fair bit of discussion about cameras by some people who know what they're talking about.
When you've got your camera post some photos!!

These tend to go for the £200 - £220 mark, new, on the bay of flea, good camera, only (!) 9mp but the 15x zoom is stonking!

Is brand important when it comes to Digital Cameras, ie. Canon, Kodak, Sony ? Which brand is the best?

I've just bought the Canon IXUS 970is for a good small digital camera £249.99 from jessops
