    Looking for a Decent 10MP Digital Camera......

    not looking for a deal, hence not in deal request.

    I currently have a Pentax SLR which has served me well over the past couple of years but have found it too large and cumbersome whilst on holiday. Would like folks -in -the -know opinions, willing to part with up to £150 for a sturdy, quality one.

Just wondering why people think they will take better photos with a higher MP, most the time no-one prints higer than A4 anyways. Although you have an SLR so I presume are actually good at taking photos so may benefit.



    the SLR basically does a great job as I am no expert :oops: if you could recommend ANY good compact digital that would be great, just looking for something small but with good quality too.

    The PANASONIC Lumix DMC-TZ5 is reviewed as an excellent camera bitsey wit a wide angle lens. It is 8.1 MP which is plenty. It's the quality of the lens that really makes a difference. This is a little it more than you wanted to spend but you Amazon have got it for £170..

    Hope you enjoyed your holiday.. Good to se you back..:thumbsup:

    thanks for the answers so far really cant justify spending more than £150 though as the SLR set me back a fair bit, although a bit of creeping round the OH may sway things

    Have a look ]HERE bitsey.. This is the Fuji refurb page.. some good bargains to be had.. But sometimes they are cheaper from other suppliers..


    You might see something you like ]HERE...

    I would say either a Panasonic Lumix or Canon Ixus for a compact. :thumbsup:

    looking to sell my panasonic TZ3 for £135 delivered if interested?...

    hello bitseylango!! im having exactly the same dilemma and have been jumping in between cameras for the last 3 weeks and still not decided what to buy!! heres a quick summary of what ive learned... hope it helps:
    a) panasonic tz5 approx £170 amazon....
    + 10x zoom, wide angle lens, good reviews generally. good leica lens, 8mp
    - possibly noise reduction system is tooo strong, abit on the chunky side and wud fit very snuggly in pocket.
    b) sony w170 approx 140 amazon
    + 5x zoom, 10mp, wide angle fairly compact and smaller than tz5, reasonable reviews
    - lower zoom than tz5, possible weak flash
    c) fuji z100 approx £100 at currys.
    +compact, 5x zoom, stylish
    - im not certain but i think the quality isnt as good as above
    d)canon ixus 80 appox 120 amazon
    +good lens, strong reviews, compact, good photo taker
    -only 3.6x zoom, no wide angle


    I havent actually purchased any of the above yet.... am still juggling and unsure which one to actually buy!!
    please keep us updated on what u choose!! if u dont wanna spend more than £150 id probably go for sony w170 or canon ixus 80.

    If theres anyone out there who can help us with this dilemaa please let us know!!!!

    Hi Bitsey.. back so soon!

    Yeh, I know what you mean. My SLR is too bulky to carry round - and did exactly as you are talking of doing.
    Bought a Canon A640 10mp camera (the one with the twisting viewing screen) at the beginning of last year for £116 (courtesy of the £50 canon cash back.)

    Cant fault the camera!
