You'll probably get as many suggestions as there are cameras that fulfil your criteria, Halmer, as everyone has their favourite. I find Dpreview is a good site to guide me. click here
Alternatively have a look at PC Advisor's top ten lists, in the mag.

The Kodak looks a decent buy. I've been told that Fuji are the market leaders but the S304 looks a bit bulbous!

The Pentax doesn't have an optical view finder which I think that I would like.

I love my Canon A70 having used both Fuji and Olympus. The A80 4MP looks even better and is just within your budget.

Its not. Its like a slightly small SLR without the weight. Not too heavy, not too light... I find it much easier to handle than traditional "ciggy packet" cameras...

this thread has made me very interested in the A80 - but nowhere seems to stock the blessid thing! It would be nice to get it in time for Xmas, hence high street is the only option, but curries, dixons, argos, comet and pc world do not seem to stock it. can anyone think of anyone else? I'm looking in the vacinity of Reading
