    I'm sure this has been asked plenty of times, so i thought i'd ask again!

    My father has decided it's time he should buy a digital camera, he has set himself a budget of up to £150

    this is an area of which i have no knowledge at all.

    this being the case.... what's the current cameras of choice at that budget he should check out?

    thanks in advance!

    the canon A95 is a nice camera for about 170sheets.

    He wouldn't be disappointed with the Fujitsu S5500 either, it is quite a nice chunky looking camera...I like mine anyway!

    is it just me that thinks the s5500 has serious noise issues, i took a few quick shutter high ISO motorsport ones on one last week and they came out very grainey at full size, very disappointing really
