Looking for decent digital camera for under £50 for 10 year old. Please help!

    Hi everyone, this is my first ever post so be gentle. I am looking for a decent digital camera suitable for a 10 year old. I am willing to go up to £50 but the cheaper the better!
    Can anyone point me in the right direction please? :thumbsup:

    Also if the camera is pink, purple or red that's even better.

    Asda are going to get some one in that department to call me back.
    Does anyone else have any suggestions? Am willing to go to £50 but would be better under £40 if possible. I have noticed that you can get Praktica models in this price range, are they any good?
    As it is a camera for a 10 year old girl it would be good if it was coloured red, pink, purple or silver. I need it to take a decent picture, be easy to use and have a good battery life.
    I am also interested in getting a kit to go with it, camera case, tripod? tec, any ideas?
    Many thanks to everyone for their help

    Many thanks to everyone, have added to reps of all who gave advise


    Im guessing you dont want nothing top of the range and guessing you want somthing if he/she drops it / breaks it wont matter much:

    I would look @ This:…508

    and also places like Superdrug have Vivtar camrea for about £39.99 - £49.99

    Also try Tesco Extra

    Good Luck!

    Hello qazim,

    Thank you so much for the advise. The ebuyer camera looks good. You know what kids are like, I'm not expecting it to last forever so I don't want to spend much. I have added to you rep too qazim, thanks again.

    try the vivitar one in superdrug, 39.99 for a 5mp

    Thanks dpwp, ive added to your rep.
    Does anyone have a Practika 5200? any good? they are in my kinda price range, which is below 40 squid lol!

    I bought the vivitar one last year - one for mum and one for my 9 yr old. Mums gave up the ghost fairly quickly and i managed to take both back for a refund. Have replaced them with Kodak Easy share c330 from the kodak online shop. about £25 if i remember rightly. My fuji died last month after I dropped it and at the moment im borrowing my sons - Very pleased with all of it and pretty surprised its as good as it is. He loves using it, so does mum - just remember to look for OPTICAL zoom over digital anyday!!
