[_] OT: decent budget compact camera

I got a Canon Powershot sx130 is for under £100. 

12Mp, 1080p video, big screen etc etc. Bought one as I have a wealthy friend
who knows about these things and has one!

It's bloody good - excellent pics, loadsa functionality too, from manual to
full auto. I think it's got a Ziess lens.

No viewfinder and takes AA batteries which can be a good thing.

But if you're looking at £200 ones you may be looking at DSLRs anyway!

Hi [_]

I'm looking to buy a good, reliable, easy to use camera around the
£200 ish mark as a present. Any recommendations?

I saw the recent recommendations for the Canon S100 but I think that's a bit
out of my price range....

Thanks in advance.
