    Hi folks.

    Im looking to buy a basic camera as a present for my mother and was hoping someone could reccommend a couple.

    preferably looking for 2MP, Removable Storage (CF/SM) and a view screen on the back.

    Ease of operation is a factor too....

    Thanks for looking in.

    Regards

    I still have a Fuji Finepix 2400 Zoom for sale if you're interested. 2.1 Megapixel Digital Camera in absolutely MINT condition with extras:
    • Genuine Fuji Soft Carry Case
    • 8MB Smart Media Card
    • 16 MB Smart Media Card
    • Genuine Fuji AC Adapter (worth £50). This is a must as Digital Cameras just eat through batteries.
    • USB Cable
    • Software (Includes USB driver, Exif Viewer, DP Editor, Adobe PhotoDeluxe HE 4.0 for Windows, Adobe ActiveShare for Windows)
    • Mini Tripod

    Everything boxed as new. Cost £350 a year ago, yours for £175 all in inc. next day p&p.

    There is a review here:

    If you want to know any more - just let me know :). It's a very simple camera to use.

    Kodak always seem to get good reviews in the "ease of use" catagory.

    Groundy.

    Im possibly interested but your price is high for something 12 months old.

    I can get the 2600 for £210 brand new, with charger, batteries etc etc.

    How low can you go?

    Hi mate - the absolute lowest I could go is £160 all in inc. Special delivery (which will cost me around £10). As I said - everything has it's original boxes and condition is perfect new. With the AC Adapter included. this is a great price as this item is always an extra with any camera and is a necessity. Case included is a genuine Fuji fitted soft case for this camera.

    Payment by any method you wish :).

    If you can stretch to it Kodak DC4900 for 4MP £250. Or if you want manual controls Canon A40 (£200).

    Jessops match internet prices if you prefer to get from the high street (ie easier if things go worng)

    Thanks for the offer groundy but i've decided to go for the Kodak dx3700.

    Got a factory rebuilt one from Kodak for £129. As new, box, manual, 12 months warrenty etc etc etc. 3MP.

    Seemed a very good deal to me.

    Regards
