    Hello all,

    Can anyone suggest a camera preferably sub £170 with at least 5MP, an optical zoom and preferably from a larger brand (Sony, Canon etc.)

    I had seen the Sony DSCP92 but it has since been discontinued.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Andrew

    I would be willing to drop to 4MP, it was more getting a good camera from a good company.

    Thanks for your response!

    I have just had a look and the Canon IXUS 400 and 430 both look excellent cameras but I couldn't find it for £200, what is the best price people have seen these cameras for?

    Thanks

    Andrew

    The Ixus 400 has been discontinued (for the 430) so u may well be able to find it on the cheap, sub £170 may be pushing it though, but IF u can find it at all should be a good price thanks to the 430 having suceeded it!

    Hi Andrew.

    On my travels I've bumped into a couple of cameras that might interest you...

    First up there's a Konica Revio KD410Z available for £140 + postage. It's a 4mp and is available from here

    If you're willing to wait a while I believe Dixons will be getting some Casio QVR40s back in stock soon. These are also 4mp and cost about £104.00 delivered... I bought one for my wife and I think it's a pretty decent camera! This is a recon model, the one we received is as new, and is available only from Dixons online :)
