I bought a Kodak Easyshare DX6490 about 5 years ago, it's only 4mp and a little big (which means I won't lose the darn thing!! Lol!!), it cost me about £200 then, so they're bound to be cheaper and probably better by now.
I've also got a small (pink!!) Samsung D1070, which is apparently 10mp and a load of other features that I don't know how to use, which cost me £60 at Xmas.
Out of the two ... the Kodak one takes far better pictures, the Kodak software is easier to use on the laptop than the Samsung stuff, so I guess you get what you pay for!!
Have you tried the Which? website? http://www.which.co.uk/reviews/digital-cameras
Good luck with your search!!
