I'm probably gonna sound dumb here but what the heck. Looking for a camera for my wife who is getting business as a freelance desktop publisher. So i'm guessing i should go for about 6MPixels. BUt my budget is kinda tight. Don't need any movie features, or editing features. Can anyone reccommend a good basic model for around £150?

If your wife can do without a viewfinder, then I would recommend the Fuji F10. It produces excellent images and it has 6.0 MP.I, for one, cannot do without an optical viewfinder, but many people manage without one. Another possibility would be the Panasonic Lumix FX9 (6.0 MP) which will be released in the States on 25 September. Maybe it will be released sooner in the U.K. It does not have a viewfinder.

If your wife needs or prefers a viewfinder, then I would take a look at Fuji Finepix E550.

You can do a search for a camera that meets your requirements by going to this link:

Thanks for that - useful advice:-)

I've been donid some more hunting around. the Fuji F10 indeed looks good but is priced over £200. I have however located a Casio QV-R61 for about £190 online; and a Nikon Coolpics 7600 (7Mp) for £200 online.

are you familiar with either of these at all?
