    Im sure this is asked alot, but Im really not sure which digital camera to get.

    I like the look and features of the Fuji FinePix 2800.

    Basically I want a camera which is 2 Megapixel or more, has a decent zoom, has good features, and is £200 or less.

    Okay, thanks.

    Ive narrowed it down to these four cameras:

    Sony DSC-P72

    Canon Powershot A70

    Kodak EasyShare DX6340

    Kodak EasyShare DX4330

    And at a push of the old budget:

    Olympus C-720UZ

    Ive managed to find a couple of the ones over £200 for alot less using uk.pricerunner.com. Like the Sony DSC-P72 for only £209.26.

    A few other 3mp, 3xzoom options at or around £200:

    Olympus C300 Zoom = £205
    Olympus C350 = £195
    Fuji A303 = £195

    Mind you, if you can afford a little bit more then the Canon A70 is a good shout.

    Then again for £20 or so extra you could get the 4mp 4xzoom Minolta S414.

    Decisions, decisions....

    Matt.

    I really like the look of the Minolta S414, and I could stretch to the asking price for it.

    Its got a good zoom, and is 4.0 Megapixel. Which is very good.

    I did want a camera which was 'point and shoot' when I needed that, and one which I could mess around with more advanced settings if I want to be more creative and learn more about photography (which I do).

    A70 has manual, shutter/aperture priority, White balance, eval/centre/avg metering modes, ev settings, flash exp comensation,, thats normally enough for being creative!
