    I just need something cheap and that does the job.
    I'd like to take photos of the inside of my pc maybe, or diff hardware as I buy it, so I can build some kind of graphical inventory.
    Anyway I'm not really sure of the details on that, but for now I'd like a camera anyway.

    So recommendations please.

    Thanks:!:

    Have a quick surf on the hw supplier sites you know of. I have a Casio QV-R51 which I would recommend to anyone but I think for you it would be more than 200£.

    I have a Fuji S7000, cost about 600 quid tho (i got it cheaper in the US)
    but saying that I would recommend any of the fuji cameras, have used quite a few

    also Sony cameras are good, and Olympus

    check out www.dpreview.com

    and ill dig up the link for the cheap camera site in the UK

    I once read that even though you can get cheap digital cameras these days, getting one that actually makes it worth it costs at least £200.

    Maybe I should wait until I can afford a decent one, hmmm.

    Man I saw a flock of geese flying across town the other dayThe clouds were grey and looked like they were ready to burst.The sun was just holding out and was breaking through parts of the clouds, illuiminating the geese.It was as if the sun was guiding them on their journey.
    It would have made a brilliant photo, so frustrating I didn't have a camera on me.

    Edit:Nice link Pheonix, just what I've been looking for.Thanks

    I know what you mean flex. Little things like that happen all the time and usually only 'once in a lifetime'. It really pays sometimes to have it on you all the time. :D

    then you wont want the S7000 :)
    i tend to take it to events, LAN Parties, and holidays, its too big to take around town for those just in case moments

    my friend has a sony, little thing that came with a belt case
    he takes it loads of places and is always snapping

    i wouldnt say you need one more than 200 quid
    depends on your uses to be honest, 200 quid will get you a pretty fair mid range model, 400 - 600 a semi pro
    1k and up will get you professional, digital SLR, kind of jobby

    I bought a HP R707 for £189 from comet online. Excellent camera, really stylish and 5 mega pixels so the quality is top notch. Also takes video with sound and has loads of features. Flex a good place to look for reviews and prices is www.dcviews.com and www.steves-digicams.com hope this helps.

    Thanks SLypie, I'll check those links out.189 quid doesn't sound too bad, I'll definitely consider that camera.

    Thanks Jak.I just described it as I saw it.
