Good digital camera for around £200

    As the title really but one with really good optical zoom.
    I don't know where to start.
    many thanks in advance


    Get a full blown slr like the nikon D40 for just over 200 quid in tesco. :thumbsup:

    Can the Nikon D40 be had for just over 200 quid in Tesco?

    Just over £246 in Tesco including 18-55 zoom. Unfortunately, the OP probably means 'long range' by 'good optical zoom' so that rules out any SLR for the stated budget.

    Usual suspects I guess, Panasonic TZ4 or TZ5. If you're really in luck there might be a TZ5 in a nearby Argos for £144.99, if not then have the TZ4 for £149.99 including delivery.

    Both have a rather good 10x zoom lens and are mightily compact.


    Not for this zoom range unless you go for a bridge style camera such as the Fuji S2000HD for £162 from Bitesizedeals incl free delivery. This has a 15x zoom range.
