it sounds a touch cheap for a 14mp camera. There are plenty of photographic forums out there that should help. I would always look at the top sellers on Amazon, it gives you an idea of what is both popular and well priced. It's worth paying a little more if you can, the results will be worth it. I bought a little Canon camera a few years ago, it was bought for a stag do in Latvia so I wanted it to be small and not too pricey in case of accidents. Anyway, I pushed my budget a little higher and what I used to call me beer camera has actually produced some pretty good results. Don't worry about the high number of mega pixels, this counts for nothing unless the cameras optics / sensor are any good. Also, depending on what the camera is used for, you might want to make sure it has a pretty wide lens, rather than a massive zoom - afterall, how often is a large zoom used compared with the reduction in quality? just a few things to think about. Good luck.

Well me & San have had a rethink with regards to the camera, after reading all your valuable posts. The other thing as well is, Mark gave advice about putting our camera on a radiator to dry it out, as we think damp may have got into it. Since we have done that, & I have taken a few photo's, it seems to be OK for the moment, I will keep an eye on the quality of the photo's in the coming weeks. But once again thank you all for your advice & I will keep you informed if we decide to go for another camera. :-bd:

I recommend that anyone looking for a camera for snaps rather than photography competitions should also consider the modestly priced camcorders on the market.
Most have a 'still' facility which also uses the gubbins of the camcorder (eg the optical zoom etc.).
If it has on board large memory it will take and store huge numbers of stills as well as movies.
Just a thought.

As you've mentioned a Samsung Mick, I've got one of these:

http://www.boots.com/en/Samsung-PL57-12MP-Digital-Camera-black_999150/

and it's fine for snaps. I took all of the recent stables being constructed pictures with it. It doesn't have panoramic mode is about the only drawback.

Pleased to hear that your other camera has dried out. Check the lens for a bit of a clean as well mate Wink
