    Hi, i'm new here.
    I am currently looking at getting a new camera - nothing special, my only requirements are:
    Priced between £50-£100 (Sorry very small budget i know!)
    Rechargeable Batteries/battery pack (whatever it is!)

    I'm guessing for this money it will only be a simple point and shoot camera. I just want it to take good pictures.

    I currently have a 3 year old samsung digimax s600 which turns its nose up at even the best batteries and simply turns on and takes maybe 1 photo and shuts off - Takes okay enough pictures otherwise
    I'll leave it with you guys :)

    Many thanks, James

    EDIT:: Also i hope i put this in the right place!!

    My suggestion is to go to www.dpreview.com ... you can check out the reviews for the cameras with your needs/wants (even cost!).

    I keep the Olympus Stylus 710 in my purse at all times...great little p&s! Spilled Dr Pepper in the purse (had just set the camera down & NOT in the case) -- lens got stuck -- so I scrubbed it with a toothbrush with water several times a day for several days...works great now!!! Not sure if that helps but if it gets ya out shooting, it's a good thing!!!
