Any experts know some of the best about at the minute?

The Canon IXUS 500 looks quality and not a bad review to be found on it so edging towards that at the minute- need one for travels soon.........

    Surely 'Anything Goes' is a lot more relevant than 'Computers and the Net'? :confused:

    Helltitz is right. If we want to get picky, a computer is a programmable electronic machine used for storing, processing and retrieving data.

    It does depend on how much you are willing to pay, but why not go to somewhere technical and ask their opinion. They'll suggest something because they only want a sale, but you don't have to buy it there and then and you can go home and check the Interweb for reviews.

    I've got the Canon IXUS 500 too..got it cheap in Singapore. Would definitely recommend it although the buttons are a little fiddley.

    Also had the Kodak easyshare before this! It was ok, not great quality pictures but so cheap I wasn't really bothered.
    Left it in a taxi after a drunken night out though!

    I just changed mine from fuji to a nikon. Much better camera tbh. Question for you, Is the pixel rate a big thing for you ? For me it wasnt because i have a very good qaulity printer but in saying taht the new camera is 3.2 mega pixels. so thats a good amount.

    heh i used to sell em at dixons ;)

    The best advice I have on buying digital cameras is if quality and ease of use is important, them buy one from one of the big brand names that have been making cameras for years.
    Nikon, Canon, Minolta, Kodak, Fuji, etc.
    If you wish to print out high quality prints up to 10x8 inches (or A4) size, then get at least 4 Megapixels. If you'll only view the pictures on the PC, or TV, or make smaller 6x4 prints, then 2-3 Megapixels will suffice.

    Buy one from a camera shop. They will be able to give you the best advice, and let you have a go with the camera in the shop, and should be able to instantly download the pictures so you can compare quality on screen right there and then. Don't buy a digital camera from somewhere that can't let you have a go, and show you the results, or you may end up being dissapointed, and then stuck with that camera, or goods from that shop you bought it from (check returns policies before buying).

    There are plenty of good, cheap, non big brand name cameras out there, but they're harder to find and try before you buy.
