    Hi all,

    I have recently moved to Toronto from Manchester in England, UK. Currently on a 12 months working visa.

    Im finding myself taking more and more photos, but currently just have a dated 5MP Samsung cyber 530 point and press camera with 3x optical zoom. Im now finding myself to be very limited with what I can do although I try my best.

    Few examples but I have lost abit of the quality when Ive up loaded them.

    Now I am after stepping it up a little, and looked at DSLR's but I just cant afford that money, so looking at the 'ultra zoom' cameras and have seen a few I like.

    Liking the sony, and fuji cameras but after some pointers. really I'd have to get second hand as my budget is limited to about $200 but if I really like the camera I could stretch to $250 all in. Bearing in mind I'd have to spend on memory cards, case/bag etc.

    So an hello from me, and any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    I'd suggest looking at whats available on Craigslist in Toronto.

    I found a few that might be interesting...

    someone is selling a Fuji S1000 for $150. Its a 10mp camera with a 12x zoom.
    Fuji S1000 digital camera

    I hear its a decent camera and fits in your budget

    Had a look in the shop at lunch.

    Seen the Fuji S1000 and S8100 aswell as the Panasonic FZ18 which I like the feel off, all are around $190-200

    What we thinking, worth me bothering?
