I have the Panasonic Lumix, its brilliant for such a compact camera & very easy to use.

Is there such a thing as a bad digital camera in this day and age the way i look on it tech moves so fast you will never keep up with the latest a camera that say 60 now about 1 year ago it probably was a top range and a top of the range camera today will probably be worth 60 a year later.
Point im making is just buy something u can afford rather than going over the top what ever you buy im sure u will be happy with the quality of the picture.

Well if i was going to buy another compact digital camera the link below is what i would go for but everyones different.
I think there will always be a slight delay when you press the button to when the photo is tooken.

It does depend on what you want out of your camera but I would give this a whirl for 100:

Fuji Finepix S1500 (https://secure.fujifilm.co.uk/shop/consumer/digital/digital-cameras/d-slr-long-zoom/finepix-s1500?utm_source=googlebase&utm_medium=ppc&utm_campaign=S1500)

I've had a couple of Fuji's and for the money they are a great piece of kit, easy to use, fast and with good picture output.

I would ensure you get optical zoom and not digital, and unless your blowing your images up bigger than A3 5-8 Mega Pixel is plenty.
