    Default If you're looking for a cheap digital camera...

    I was looking around recently for another Digital camera. The DSLR is great, but I found that I was missing some nice pictures when out walking the dog because it's a bit too bulky to carry unless I'm on a definite photo expedition. I've got a Canon S70 which is more compact, but still quite bulky. I decided I needed a really tiny camera, with reasonable quality results.

    After a great deal of surfing and reading of websites, I found that Fuji have an online shop that sells refurbished cameras here, and bought a brown Z88 for just under £70. It comes with a 6 a month guarantee and it's indistinguishable from new.
    I'd recommend the shop for anyone who's looking for a bargain.
    The camera is just what I wanted, not as good quality as an SLR, but I now catch the pictures I was missing before. As long as I remember which pocket I put it in, as it's TINY!

    I love my 400D, but I just wanted something I could stick in a pocket, or leave in the car, and be sure I always had a camera with me.

    The 400D is a great little camera, my boss has one which I borrow.

    I've just bought a Fujifilm S2000HD for £172 from b4udirect.com
    OK, it's not the cheapest, but I got fedup waiting for Argos to get them back in stock so I could use my nectar points, but when it did come back in to stock last week it was sold out before I could use the link (4 hours old!)

    I upgraded my purchase to the bundle with the camera bag and 4GB SDHC card, with an extra 4GB SDHC card; £202 all in
    Was delivered 5 business days later

    However, not happy with DHL as they delivered it to my neighbour, and found out they didn't sign for it!
