Wanted New Cheap Digital Camera that isn't too bad - £50 approx

I would like to get someone a family member their 1st digital camera for approx £50, ideally a smallish model that is from a shop so has a guarantee etc.
So would like the best camera for £50 and not a 4MB version by Vivitar or whatever!

I can pick up a memory card nice and cheap so not worried if it comes with one.

Please Help!

You should go for nice used one if you do not want a rabbish one like Vivitar.

Pentax E35 for £49.99 from currys (and get 3% quidco on reserve and collect). The best proper camera you'll get at this price.

Our max speilmans had a half price offer on a decent camera not sure if it was a kodak

Just looking at this one now, looks quite nice, think I'll take a visit and look instore (if it exists instore - says not available instore but maybe just at that price?)

Optical Zoom is a must too

I'd rather not go for 2nd hand.

they are in store and part of the Click 08 - if you grab the brochure, it will be close to the front, so even if they dont have one, they should be able to tell you which other stores have stock

Yes had it in stock also the Kodak C813 (8.1MP)

Both camera's actually look pretty good and not too large so should be what I require.
I then went to Jessops, they have the Pentax E40 (8.1MP) and can do me a deal so willing to sell for £59.97, or if I also buy their 3 years cover protection can get it for £73.
So just searching for reviews and will decide in the next day or so.
Thanks again

Quick update, after a bit more research I have gone for the Canon A470, got it from Currys with extra 5% off code and Quidco so £73ish. It has the best reviews for Cameras in the same range and takes AA batteries so easier to replace/get rechargeables.

I couldn't find a good enough one for £50 in the end!
