    Sorry I think I must have been pis*ed, club book is scottish for catalogue e.g. next, littlewoods etc., but I was trying to be sarcastic. The argos catalogue is not the be all and end all of shopping for a camera. Try e-buyer, try empire direct, those are just a couple I have used but there are many other sites offering bargains pixmania to name just one.
    Do a bit of googling and see what you come up with it can be fun.

    thanks for all your comments guys,i've taken a look at the cameras mentioned and am now quite taken with the fuji 550,i've looked at quite a few reviews and 95% seem very positive,now i've just got to get the right price best i've seen is pixmania £159 which seems great, but if anyone knows a better deal please let me know.

    cheers,

    tel47 :thumbsup:
