Hi. My brother is going to Australia for a year in a couple of weeks and he's asked me to help him look into getting a digital camera for his travels. His main criteria will be something compact but reasonably hardy, that takes decent pics for the price, and will interface easily with his Windows laptop as he's no computer whiz. His budget is around £150 (although for instance if a really great value-for-money camera is about at £175 he might stretch to it), but I have no idea what that buys you as this really isn't my forte at all. Hopefully you guys can offer some suggestions, and links to reasonably-priced retailers would be lovely. Thanks in advance. f.
