    Hi,
    Can you Recommend me a good Digital Camera for £200.

    Ive been looking at Sonys DSC 32 which is about the right price, What do you think?

    Can I do better with another brand?

    Well, to start with you can get the next Sony up (the P52) for £180 from several places - see here: http://uk.pricerunner.com/photography/digital-cameras/145323/prices

    The P52 is very nice - 3mp but only a 2 x optical zoom.

    Other decent 3 mp cameras (with 3 x optical zooms):

    Olympus C300 Zoom = £205
    Olympus C350 = £195
    Fuji A303 = £195
    Sony P72 = £215

    There are various others too. Use www.uk.pricerunner.com to get the best prices.

    Matt.

    The Canon A60 which is just under £170 at PC World and Currys but only until Tuesday and you could put your £30 change towards a large Compact Flash card.

    If you could stretch another £31 Duster you could get the Canon A70 from Jessops. You will have to do a price match on Pricerunner but they matched it.

    Yup. They quoted me £299 when I phoned so used pricerunner got some of the cheapest one's off the web and went down and they matched it.

    FYI Jessops will only price match if the people off the Internet have it in stock and Jessops also take into account shipping costs. So make sure you ring the Internet people to check on stock before you go to Jessops.

    They also have to be UK based!!

    I wish there was a button on here to automatically reply Jessops price match policy, this must have been quoted 100s of times now!!!

    you could have a look at amazon as they are selling the Kodak dx6340 for £199 inc delivery

    3.1 mega pixels
    4x optical zoom
    digital zoom takes it up to 14x
    mmc/sd card storage

    I got one a couple of weeks ago and haven't stop smiling since

    excellent camera
