    Thanks, I think I am settled on the one I linked, have hinted to the mrs already :laugh: like I say I am no photographer but I would like something more than the bog standard click and shoot automatic digital cameras, this seems to be a nice compromise of both types and hopefully having some manual settings will keep me occupied as I find digital cameras boring though really want to take more photos of my family

    Shut up you said SLR not bridge camera.

    EDIT: I would go for something else the low light performance puts me right off.

    You shut up I said I would like SLR BUT I only have £150 max budget and I am not that into photography so I am looking at....... :laugh:

    Yea but for the price I am hard pressed, could you recommend anything for the same price range?

    Defo think a bridge camera is the way to go as they have a little bit more about them than simple point and shoot but don't cost £400+ as a good DSLR will set me back.

    [​IMG] ...you wont get a DSLR at that price and are better off with a bridge camera or rather that's what i said in my previous post.

    EDIT: I'll have a look but the only other camcorder i saw was another Fuji (FinePix S200EXR) with a shittier video quality but a bit better photo quality.

    I know, I said I would like one BUT hence I posted the one I did (we could do this all night lol ;) ), and videos not an issue, I mean I might use it now and then, but on the whole it would be primarily for photos only

    http://www.techradar.com/reviews/ca...pact-cameras/nikon-coolpix-l120-939597/review

    Nikon Coolpix L120, long review but another alternative.

    EDIT: I know your taking the piss so dont bother because ill report you for baiting me, I said "bridge camera is your best bet tho." because i knew that was in the price range you stated. I am actually trying to help you out here. If in the end you go with the original camera you posted fine but at least take a look at some others first bro.

    http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Produ..._14419441|Bridge digital cameras|26695350.htm

    £129.99 for the Nikon Coolpix L120.

    Cant find much about the Fujifilm Finepix S3200 so i dont know how different it is to the S2950.

    What about something compact like a Panasonic Lumix? You can get ones with 10x or 12x zoom.

    Some of the digital cameras are just as good as a bridge minus the long zoom, the zoom on some bridge is wasted on a smaller sensor so you dont get the same detail at those long ranges but you might need a longer x zoom which a compact digital camera cant offer anyway if you see my point? LOL

    I wasn't taking the piss and am in the process of reading the review you posted and taking it as a consideration, you would know if you are familiar with my posts I don't troll bait so no need to get paranoid mate :toast:

    I honestly don't have much of a clue so any help is appreciated ;)

    Moreso, I wouldn't bait anyone in the UK clubhouse of all places as I come here to get away from the rest of the numpties :toast:

    Just because i'm chinese doesn't mean i know how to cook stereotypically i see,fact is parents cook dinner so i make no effort to learn right now.
    Got problem with that blud?

    And as for your other comment i got nothing to say,if i was good for nothing why would they bother with me in 1st place so logic fails,yeah i can tell your messing.

    Well my parents always cook dinner too, but that doesnt mean i havent done the same for other people before.

    Of course my skill is nowhere near head chef level but I havent killed anyone yet (and before you all jump up and shout "beans on toast" No - its not, Its something more complicated then that)

    being able to cook can be a powerful tool, and if used correctly, it will get you laid. (speaking from personal experience ;) )

    Or it can be used to show someone how much you really love and care about them - sorta like a romantic gesture which then might lead to getting laid.

    I dunno bro - I just like to cook.

    ----


    I was gonna say, the only reason they bother with you is because youre their only son and they gotta make do, but i know you have a brother so that doesnt work.

    Why so serious?

    Lucky b**tards, I have to cook myself, and occasionally cook for my lazy flatmates, AND do the washing up after that for them. Living sans maids parents is a bit more hard work. At least it trains me for future life with slave driver wife.

    @Four yeah it does,which is why i don't understand my parents concept of not allowing me to move out to go uni,how else can i learn to take care of myself if i keep living at home.
