I have done some comparison and found the following cameras are worthy to consider:

Fuji A205s 2M + 3x optical £114
Samsung Digimax 240 2M + 3x optical £118
Canon A60 2M + 3x optical £132
Sony DSC-P52 3M + 2x optical £150
Sony DSC-P72 3M + 3x optical £173
Pentax Optio 33L 3M + 3x optical £177

I'm also tempted to Canon A70 and Kodak DX6440 but both of them are about £220 (above my budget).

Any views of which one to eliminate/serious consider? Also I realise the memory is cheaper for compactflast so Canon and Pentax will save some money when I buy memory later...

Any opinion are welcome........:)

I would suggest you give serious consideration to the Sony DSC-P72.

The review of this camera is excellent,

Some time ago I posted a similar thread to this at click here. As you will see I originally started with a budget of under £200, but I too was tempted by the Canon A70, which after a lot of thought and negotiation with the "Chancellor" (Mrs GroupFC), is what I ended up with!

I am extremely pleased with the camera and very happy with the results. Even my wife enjoys using it and on occasions even takes better shots than me!

If you do manage to stretch the budget and get the A70, I don't think you will be disappointed.
