Seeking a decent budget camera

Posted 27th Sep
Hi,
my girlfriend's birthday is in a few days and I have decided to gift her a digital camera. I've set my budget to a max of £200 but haven't found anything of interest. I don't know much about cameras but neither does she. All I can say is that she'd be mainly using it for taking photos. I don't think she'd have much interest in filming videos. I have come across the acanon eos m100 and I think she'd love it especially that its pocketable and has a flip screen. However £339 is way beyond my budget. Are there cheaper alternatives to the eos m100? or does anyone know where I can get a good deal on this camera?

btw, I'm aware of the camera with a free printer deal posted on huk but I've read that it doesn't take great pictures so I've decided to pass on it.


thank you

Does she not have a cellular phone?
Panasonic TZ80 compact is a very good camera, can get for about £250.. but sometimes £200 if you look around.
Just get her a Google pixel

Brand new great starter camera...£69 more than your budget but worth it.

p20 lite but id rather get her a real camera given that she was in fact considering buying one herself a few months ago
