HELP! What digital SLR camera to buy?

    OH wants a SLR camera for xmas but I don't know where to start and was hoping the good people of HUKD could point me in the right direction!

    I'm on a budget so up to £200 if possible.

    She's not a professional just enjoys taking photo's so a good zoom would be ideal.

    I will rep those who help.

    Thanks in advance.


    You wont find a DSLR for £200

    I think perhaps you just mean a normal digital camera as I just read it again and you say about the zoom. If so have a look at the Panasonic Lumix TZ range. They have a 10x zoom. I had an old TZ3, not sure what they are on now TZ6 perhaps.

    For just £50 more there are some dslr with lens kits.

    Do Jessops still carry used stock? If so I reckon they'll have a Nikon or Canon something good as new, phone around..

    Thanks for your help guys! Repped you both.

    Argos Clearance Bargains is an eBay store that is where i got my DSLR from
    I bought the Canon D400 (I think its a D)

    Great price, but of course their best bargains are when the catalog changes

    When I bought mine from them, they had 560 of them to get rid of!!
