Where can a begginner buy a digital camera and what type of memory is recommended

I would suggest going through your local paper for second-hand deals, or your nearest Cash Converter type store. Have a look around and compare with this...click here

As a starter, I'd suggest you get a reasonable camera - buying a poor quality one will probably put you off using it.

It all depends on your budget for the £100 mark you will get a competent canera; I'd be very wary of buying second hand.

As for cards, it will depend on what camera you buy. I like SD cards as they are small, cheap and reliable.

Personally I would not go for second hand deals.

Bargains can often be found from discontinued model ranges. The memory cards required will depend on the brand; compact flash, secure digital, xD card, memory stick, are common.

If you give us an idea of your budget, we may be able to help further.

There are a number of factors that need to be put into the equation here before we can support a resonable recommendation.
1. What is your budget?
2. When you say beginner, is it for a kid or adult?
3. How will the pictures be viewed, on a screen or printed?
4. Is it basic 'holiday-type' snaps you want to take, or something more intricate?
5. What kind of life span do you want to give a basic camera before upgrading?
The type of camera you choose, and also the capacity of the memory chip, will depend on (at least) these factors.

Before Summer, I purchased 4 cameras (second hand) for my nephews and niece, for them to play around with. It has helped them to understand some of the basics of digital photography so they can grasp what future requirements they may have for their new cameras on their respective birthdays. Unfortunately, they have also managed to take snaps of me during a couple of drunken antics!
