Recommendations for digital Camera @ £70



Does anyone have any recommendations for a digital camera around the £70 mark, for my son to take on holiday with him. :lease:

It's hard to say- what type of holiday? Is it just for fun snaps of friends etc in which case 3x zoom would be ok or would he require more zoom? The other thing to bear in mind is size- would he want something slimline to fit in a pocket- eg canon ixus or similar or slightly larger?

The sony dsc w5 is fairly good and can be picked up for £30-40 if you were willing to go secondhand as it's not current. Good images/ manual control etc and lower value in case it gets trashed/lost.

Current models maybe Panasonic DMC FS3 slightly above budget £86 or Canon Powershot a430 a bit below £66? Seen some good results with both although not owned them myself.
