    Looking to get this camera...

    Hi,

    I'm off on to watch Barcelona play Deportivo this weekend and I'd like to get a new digital camera for the trip (will be going to the Picasso Museum and that unfinished Church as well as the footy).

    At the moment I've got a Canon Powershot A30 but it's only a 1.2MP and it's a bit bulky for my liking.

    I've been looking at this one Casio Exilim EX-Z55.

    Has anyone had any experince with the Casio Exilim Zooms?

    Cheers,
    vaughty

    they tend to be good - but a bit pricey - they use the same lens as the pentax optio s4/s5/s40/s50 's so you may want to look at the pentax version to see if they're any cheaper. the casio's tend to have bigger screens though.

    I was looking at the S5i but I just liked the idea of the bigger screen.

    Does anyone know of a good place to get either of them from? I need reliable next or 2 day delivery.

    thanks for the quick reply,

    your local jessops should be able to sort you out and they'll normally match online prices too. failing that try the dreaded dixons store group.

    Well I ended up getting the Casio mainly due to the fact that I found it for £80 cheaper than anywhere else on the net and then with the magic of Google I got a £10 discount code which covered my next day delivery.

    As soon as I get it I'll let everyone know what it's like.

    Jessops say they do price matching, but in actual fact they got nowhere near the internet prices when I tried to get them to do a price match on a Sony W1 and P100.

    How much are they?
    If youre looking at around the £200 mark then have a look at the Minolta G600. 6MP and is amazing picture quality

    I ended up paying £260 inc next day delivery.

    Haven't really had a chance to play with it yet cause I got my MSc results today and we've had family round and all that but as soon as I do I'll let everyone know.
