    My kid brother goes travelling for a year next Wednesday and we plan to get him a digital camera as a leaving gift.

    From a time and convenience point of view, we'll probably get it from a high street store. Budget is £150-£200 and we'd like 3 megapix and above.

    Anyone aware of any cracking offers out there at the moment?

    Do you know if he wants something that will just slip in her pocket or something with a zoom lens. http://www.pricerunner.co.uk/photography/digital-cameras/220197/details

    If you print out the web page and take it to jessops they will price match it as long as the company is uk based

    Great tip on the Jessops price match thanks.

    Thanks for the various comparison shopping links as well. I've used Dealtime before but they don't always show the final all inclusive price, so their prices can be a little misleading.

    He wants something that he can slip in his pocket so I'll probably go for the Canon A85.
