    Hi.

    My wife is off to India with work shortly so we're looking for a good, small, slim camera for her to keep with her. c£100 is our limit.

    It must have 5x optical zoom and do video with sound.

    Intelligent type auto etc would be idea too (point & shoot for her).

    Jessops have an Olympus X-880 for £99 and was wondering about that but can't find anything on that camera on the Olympus site.

    Sainsburys have an Olympus FE-340 for £86 too.

    I like Olympus as my main camera is a CZ-765UZ so we could share the XD cards.

    Any views or opinions please:lease:

    Cheers,

    Simon

    Hi. Went for the Fuji Finepix J150W in the end. £99. 10mp, 5 x optical zoom, all metal & so on. She's very happy with it and early impressions are favourable.
