You might like to try this site. Its American but don't hold that against it. It's written by people who have bought a camera (or accessory) with their own cash and used it in the real world. I think this is sometimes better than camera magazines where 'experts' seem to sometimes dwell on technical bits that us ordinary types know and care little about.

I have a very old Fuji that I use at work, can't remember the model but its at least 4 years old, it is only 2.0 megapixel but for taking still photos of stuff your talking about its excellent. Nothing bad i can say about Fuji, I use their film too for my manual camera. Just make sure its in good working order and not abused, if it is the type that has a backscreen, make sure it works properly, the one on my Fuji is starting to disappear now and again but only through years of human abuse.
