    Had a quick search but didnt find anything particularly recent so here goes.

    After my first proper mooch I realise my camera is really not up to the job. I have a Casio Exilim which does OK but its a bit fiddly to say the least. I have a budget of about £100 and am quite happy to go down the 2nd hand route. Can you guys recommend something not huge that will allow me to take shots a bit easier than the Exilim?

    thanks

    Good idea about the 350D.

    The cheapest I could find on Ebay (buy It Now)as a kit is £110, including two batteries and a decent bag...

    Next decent one with a black body is £130... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Canon-EOS...Cameras_DigitalCameras_JN&hash=item43ce730729


    To buy the body and lens separately the cheapest was £118 (Ebay Buy It Now)...

    Body £75 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Canon-EOS...Cameras_DigitalCameras_JN&hash=item233eb234d3

    Lens £42.99 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Canon-EF-...=UK_Lenses_Filters_Lenses&hash=item462684a3d8

    Fantastic! I was looking at a 350D but I will definitely check out the powershot range.

    edit: Gone for the £110 350D should arrive in a few days, thanks again.

    Not great as I didn't have time to get my camera bag from the car in the end so had to rely on my Note 2 which was pretty much useless.

    Ahh thanks man! I actually upgraded to a 650D about a month ago though, as I got a really good deal.
