After reading your responces to my posting, (thanks) I am looking for a digital camera for under 200 pounds, to replace my Jenoptik c160 which i had free with my hp 3420 printer.

Where is a good place to buy and which model is worth looking at?

Thanks Diolch Yn Fawr (welsh)

Some clues on what you would like to do with it will help people to guide you - but at sub-£200.00 you are really in the "instant camera" range. Having said that, something with 2m.pixel and 3X zoom could be feasible. (Kodak, Fuji, HP, Epson could be a reasonable start point). Look at some of the recent reviews on budget cameras to get some additional clues

Without doubt..Canon A40 click here. I've been using one for a couple of weeks and the quality is staggering. Don't be put off by it's 2Mb images. A4 prints...no probs. Rather than the lame Canon d/l software I have been using Irfanview which, IMHO, is a muuuuch better prog.

Irfanview is very good.........

I have a Minolta Dimage E203 with 2mp, 3x zoom, video etc which takes cracking pix and cost £199.99 at dabs - that was £150 less than at amazon.co.uk!
