    Me say Fuji goooooooooooooooooooooood; mind you I'm still on a 2MP 2800z. Still does what I need it to, though. If anyone wants to jump in with a better idea, please do. Alternatives might include HP's R707 - http://www.dabs.com/uk/Search2/Produ...rchphrase=R707 - but if it were me, I'd go Fuji again.

    don't forget to include a new memory card in when looking for cameras though as nearly all new cameras only come with an 8 or 16mb card and you will need a bigger card.
    I do know everything, just not all at once. It's a virtual memory problem.

    look for the Canon Powershot A85, great camera. 4 mega pixels, optical zoom and all that and leaves you £40 for a memory card

    Oh - sorry, missed the 5mp requirement

    The Fuji falls slightly short on MP but has cracking optical zoom, nice controls too.

    Canon A-Series no doubt, in 2 years i've yet to see any camera that beats it for the creative user. If you want features and manual controls and canon quality then go for an A-Series

    I think I've seen the Fuji E510 5mp digicam for £179 in Argos of all places!

    The Sony P100 is around £208 but then you'd have to buy a sony memory stick which is pretty expensive - P93 around £200 as well.
