    OK it's time I though about a new camera. I've had a Fuji 5700 8mp thingy for a few years and as much as I love it, it is starting to show its age. So...here's what I'm looking for.

    Compact digital, decent zoom, easier to use the better. Budget is about 150. Oh and I like the size of my current camera. I don't want something tiny that I'll stick in my back pocket and sit on. I'm not into the serious photography but I like to take a nice picture. Something that will give me a nice quality picture of the boy with Mickey would be fine.

    Suggestions?

    Was looking at the Canon PowerShot SX150 - it's currently half price in Argos.

    I bought a Canon Powershot A4000 IS when we were in New York recently.
    I chose this camera because it is an updated version of the camera that Doug [our friend in LA] bought a couple of years ago and I was very impressed with the photos he took with it.

    I still love my SLR Nikon, but sometimes I feel it is a bit bulky to carry around with me all of the time, so the Canon solves this issue as well.

    me too, between 150 and 200 point and shoot, I'm looking for something to stick in my handbag - quite small and easy to use.

    We love our Sony Cybershot! Takes great pictures and it's extremely simple to use. It ran us around $180 (115 pounds?).

    Do you want a large zoom on it or is size more important than the zoom?

    mmmmm i don't want it that small i need a a magnifying glass to use it but smaller than my bridging camera....i'd quite like it to have a large aperture to avoid flash if possible, zoom - i've not really thought about it really

    what about something like the Nikon Coolpix P310

    decent little unit! It's only a large aperture at the very widest setting though it gets to be a very small aperture very quickly :/ (but then most of them do)
