    Digital Camera Help

    Hello All,

    i'm looking for a digital camera for my girlfriend, it will be a christmas present. it will be replacing her current digital camera a Fuji 4.1MP 3xOptZoom, so obviously i'd like it to be higher spec'ed than this one. i think she would prefer a compact one as she mainly carries it around on a night out.

    could anyone point me in the right direction? any good reliable sites? looking to pay around £60 if possible, but since i like her at the minute i could stretch for any highly recomended ones.

    Thanks

    Might be worth checking what kind of memory card she uses at the moment, if she uses then you may want to stick with Fuji as you wouldn't have to buy a new card.

    Also, would you consider a refurbished camera, you may well be able to get a better camera for the money.

    If you can find a cheap Fuji F20, they seem to be one of the top choices at the moment - probably slightly above your budget but a really excellent camera.

    I'll try and have a look for some other options, if I get the time - busy day at the office!

    I've just bought this ]Kodak C743 7.1mp for the mother-in-law, it comes with a memory card in the deal for £64.62 (free delivery at the mo as well)

    Hurry though cos yesterday when I bought there were 256 in stock only 212 now...selling like hot cakes


    By the way the memory cards are selling 2gb for £8.49 at play.com, so its not expensive to replace

    i have considered a refurbished camera, just wouldn't know where to get one. looked at the kodak, seems a nice camera, definitely a possibility. how big/heavy is it? comfortable to handle?

    appreciate the help, keep it coming!

    If you want a refurb, the same model as the one I posted above is available from Ebuyer as a refurb for £54 (gotter say I would pay the extra tenner for a new one, as it also comes with a 512mb memory card)

    My 5yr old son uses this camera with some great results, so as far a weight goes, unless your girlfriend blows away in a strong wind she'll be OK :thumbsup:

    Means it a refurb, but a top notch one, comes with a years warranty, usually its a screen replacement
