    Hi All,

    I'm looking for a new digi camera at the minute.

    I love the look of the Lumix TZ5 and want a camera between £100-£200.
    I don't want to go down the DSLR route (as if I could with £200 anyway!!)
    I want a camera that takes clear shots, has a decent optical zoom and face detection ect would be good, but not essential.

    I like the look of the lumix range but I'm open to suggestions- anyone?

    Will watch with interest Josn as i want to get the kids a new one before next year's trip.

    What is the difference between optical and digital zoom and which one should we have the highest value for.

    I'd also like one with rechargable batteries as i'm fed up with changing ours!

    Sorry to hijack but it saves a duplicate post.

    Optical zoom is definatley the best one- I would disregard digital zoom altogether as its rubbish.

    Optical zoom lets you zoom without loss of quality- it simply magnifies the image, digital distorts photos, so isn't much good really.

    I got the Fuji S5800 from Argos - it's about £130. 10x optical zoom, a macro and super-macro and a whole lot of jiggering things that I haven't got a clue about. I'm very happy with the shots it takes.

    Well it's always hard to advise because at the compact end of the market, there are just SO many different shapes and sizes. Basically I think it stops being an easy decision on features and fashion/colour/size all come into it.

    What I could say is that a lot of people have enjoyed the Fuji cameras in recent years because they come with a high iso capability allowing decent low light photos.

    The Fujifilm Finepix F100fd is the latest so far in that range

    Liz has the Canon Power Shot S5 IS (image stabaliser). This is half way between a compact point and shoot and a DSLR. 12x optical zoom and the digital zoom is quite decent quality too (48x) It might be a little over budget though. we paid £229.00
