Looking to invest in a digital camera

    Good Evening people.

    I'm looking at buying a new digital camera, and I have no idea where to start. So I would like to know what you would recommend?
    I don't want anything too pricey. Under £100 would be great. I want a camera that looks the part and it needs to be thin. I don't want to have something too bulky. And obviously it has to take pretty decent pictures.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    you could probably get a camera that suits your needs for £50

    That would be good. But I really don't know where to start looking to be honest.

    go to put in digital cameras in the search box , it will give you a good idea of the broad range of cameras that are available from £10.00 upwards you can look at some of the different specifications the cameras have to offer , this site is always my first port of call when i am looking for something .

    The specs on that don't look bad, but I'm looking for something a bit more, stylish/pretty, and thinner. I know, I'm very picky.

    no prob, it was only a starting point and your only at half your budget … no prob, it was only a starting point and your only at half your budget so far

    I'd love anything that looks like this

    But that specific camera is around £250 I think, so it's way out of my price range.

    I think the above suggestion for an Ixus is a good one as it is a very stylish and small camera, I don't think you'll find much else in that price range that offers anything similar. I bought an Ixus 100 for my Mum for much the same reasoning as she wanted a very slender camera she could easily carry with her and very pleased with the Ixus. I think Panasonic and Fuji have some similar slim cameras as the Sony above for less although I don't think they're a good choice, the super slim design rather than the conventional extending lens barrel is not good for image quality.

    bizarre that people get fixated more on how a camera looks rather than the quality of the picture it takes. No-one looks at you when you are taking a pic lol

    I would recommend a Pentax Optio H90 - superb price for a quality camera but doubt op would appreciate it aesthetically lol…496
