c370 wins hands down for me with the optical zoom.

Agreed.

To muddy the waters have also been told about the
FUJI FinePix A345


But most say , don't sacrifice the zoom for the pixels!

The fuji has the same optical zoom as the c370 and a few more pixels to boot, if the price difference isn't that much i'd choose the fuji.

Don't rush in too quickly. £100 or just below is fast becoming the benchmark for 3MB to 4MB models with optical zoom etc.

Plenty of camera reviews here as well as the more usual review sites if you find a suitable model(s):

Special offers in the national newspaper ads, especially at the weekend, are worth checking.

So too is this Jessops page listing all models up to £150:

plus might be worth checking Argos:

However it's best to stick with the established camera manufacturer brands such as Olympus, Fuji, Canon, Pentax, Nikon etc.

Don't just buy a digital camera (or any camera for that matter) merely on specifications.

How it handles and whether it is comfortable and easy and intuitive to use are very important.
