Re: thoughts

Hello Fiona,
If I was looking for a compact camera these days, based purely on the performance of my FJ410 I'd be looking at Fuji compacts. However, I don't have a clue what they make these days.
That probably isn't much help - sorry.

Re: thoughts

If it's any help my mum has a Kodak hybrid thingy. This one in fact:

Review and Pictures of Kodak EasyShare Z740 5-Megapixel Digital Camera with 10x Optical Zoom

It's good, really simple to use and there are a lot of things you can play with settings wise although it is left on Auto generally.
My better half uses it for e-bay purposes when she's listing at Mum and Dad's, but she thinks that our Fuji takes better images in low light of the items she sells on there.

Re: thoughts

In that case I'd buy a Fuji. Get a rechargable one though, I had an A type one before and it ate batteries.
A quick squizz on Amazon shows some good deals and some impressive pixels for that type of thing. The J30 looks like a good deal.
