    Which camera? about £300?

    I need to order a gift today for a birthday. I thought a camera would be good. I have NO idea about cameras and no time to research. I want a pretty much automatic digital - something better then a weeny one but not a professional one either. Any suggestions? Many thanks

    DSLR or cross over ?

    i hope they are grateful for the time and thought you put into their gift.
    the standard 'oh thats a good camera' is panasonic tz10 at around 210 before cashback
    probably things abit better in terms of compacts for 300 but no idea.

    Yeah thats the one. I just bought it. One of the best compact cameras on the market with a 14x optical zoom (can even take pictures of the moon, check out you tube). Perfect for a budding photographer and with £30 canon cashback!

    Is it a lot worse then a canon g12 which someone told me to get - this is a gift and we are not mad photographers he just wants something better then a point and shoot digital and something that can take black and white photos
