What Digital Camera.

Hi All.
I am thinking of buying a mid range
digital camera for between two and three pounds.
What do you think is a good buy.
I would like a good macro lens for garden Photos.

If you can find one at this price let us all know - pronto.....:-))

With all due respects there are many recent threads on this very subject and a Search will reveal them.

I don't think you will be able to buy even the worst digital camera between 2 and 3 pounds.

Zilch at this price but giving you the benefit of the doubt, I have just bought the Fuji Finepix 3000s for £189 at ebuyer and its a brilliant camera. Be warned that the video does jnot come with sound on this model. If sound is needed go for the S304 which is the previous model but with exactly the same specs but cannot play directly through TV.

Hi All
What a stupid mistake to make
I ment £200 to £300.

Print this out and Jessops photo shops will match it. I know, I did it with this supplier when I bought my Canon S50 last summer.

I just bought the Minolta Z1, brilliant camera almost an SLR. 10x zoom and good macro. Built in flash but also takes an external flashgun. I got it from Bristol Cameras at £260 plus postage, but now available at many more stores cheaper take a look at click here
