    Looking for a cheap and cheerful compact camera. The missus has now broken the last two Casio Exilim compacts that we have had, so now I'm not going to buy new, you know, just in case it happens again! :laugh:

    I think one without a retractrable lens would be good as that is how the last two broke, the lens stopped coming out/retracting. However, open to any recommendations.

    Not that I ever use it, but on the off chance I might, I don't want an old dog.

    Are the old TZ range worth looking at? I know it has a retractable lens, but always fancied one.

    A2200 from the Canon refurb shop. Got good reviews and is cheap. :)
    Bought a hard case for it to be stored in which should hopefully make it last a bit longer.

    Yeah there is that possibility! That is how the first one died, it was dropped in the snow!
