    I'm in the market for a camera upto £170. i'm looking for 3m pixs and a optical zoom. movie mode with sound would also be nice feature.

    camera should be able to take a quick snap or be manually adjusted if needed.

    I've shortlisted above cameras..

    Am i on the right tracks ? - also noticed Ixus11s for £165.

    Have a Canon PS A80 and I am more than happy with it.

    Takes excellent pictures and has a host of manually adjustable features.

    Highly recommended.

    If manual options are required, then I'll have to be boring too! Canon! :rotfl:

    Wanting a 'quick', portable alternative to my SLR, whilst wanting the chance to have SLR-like options with my snapping, earlier this year I found the Canon 'A' range to best fit those needs.

    I still like my SLR, but my back and shoulders sure are grateful! :(

    However, if at all possible, it's a good idea to check how these manual functions are accessed. At least with the A60/70/80, there are one or two 'layers' of options, should settings be made via the manual route - which, I suppose, some may consider 'unwieldy'. Having said that, though I do use and experiment with both the manual and 'auto' methods, I find myself rarely having to use manual settings (and far less than expected). When I have a little more time for shooting and/or need the flexibility, I'm certainly glad that they're there, though :smashin:

    For what it's worth (don't you just love half-baked anecdotes...? :D ), I bought the same camera on behalf of a friend. She's full of praise for it, too. Er, bye then!

    Happy snapping!

    I've had some fun with my A80 and it's a great camera for messing about with too with all the extra settings that can be used. Hoping to upgrade to an A95 today though :D
