My ever reliable 3.2mp :oops: Olympus mji is starting to falter and so I should be in the market for a new camera soon.

Now I'll be honest I'm more point and shoot - I leave the SLR stuff to Mrs LMTTM :oops: :lol:

Criteria - Sub £200 possibley £250 if it would make a huge difference :?

Somebody recommended Ricoh but I have little to no idea :oops:

Help.

I paid £166 for a Canon digital Ixus 9 just before Christmas from Dixons.

Very nice camera for the cash

2nd that.

I have the older DMC TZ3, it's very good (IMHO)

The newer TZ5 is very similar IIRC

Thirded. :wink:

I've got a DMC-TZ5 and it's easily the best camera I've had (better even than my old Dynax 800Si). Depending upon where you go it sells for anywhere from £160 to £230 depending upon the included accessories. It's got a 10x zoom, 3" LCD screen and image stabilization.

All the pics of stuff I put on here are taken with it. :)

Same here - paid good money for a Nikon Coolpix for the other half a couple of years back, my N82 takes better pics!

Got a Nikon D50 for proper pics, but can't see the point of carrying phone / camera / mp3 player when you can get one thing that does the lot.......
