    Hi There

    I dont really know much about cameras, but I bought a Kodak Easy Share LS753 Digital camera (5mp) just over a year ago & have been very pleased with it.

    I only really use it for snaps; nights out, birthdays etc, but I have always been very pleased with the picure quality, in particular, the colours are really sharp. The camera is very easy to use & comes with a rechargeable battery.

    I bought mine from amazon : http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/...111697-1978039

    I dont know if they still do this exact model, but I am sure they are bound to offer something similar at the moment that will be a similar quality.

    Best of luck.

    regarding your batteries go for rechargeables OVER 2000 milliamp (or whatever the power rating is), preferably go for about 2500 ones. I run my Minolta Z10 on 2300s and i get about 250 shots of continuous auto focus and continuous shooting.

    Thanks for the info, especially on the batteries I didn't realise that they would last that long but still undecided on what camera, I've still got a couple of weeks before the holidays.
