    Digital Camera

    A member of staff has asked for one of a budget of £100 excl VAT. Will probably need an SD card included if possible.

    Any recommendations.

    I just bought another little canon compact that seems great for the price. Canon PowerShot A1100 IS Digital Camera - Silver 2.5: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics & Photo works well and takes pretty decent snaps.

    I gave one of these to each class teacher last year: Samsung ES15 Digital Camera - Black 2.5 inch LCD: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics & Photo

    Had no complaints about them, easy to navigate menus, good quality pictures, and cheap!

    We've got a few Canons here, they all seem to do what it says on the tin.

    I've got a Fuji S1500, probably not what's you're after since you can make quite a few adjustments, it's trying to be a baby SLR. However it's a great little camera.

    Cant go wrong with Canons, genuinely decent compact cameras and no stupid software needed to install
    Perhaps the Powershot is a bit better than the Ixus in school situations, looks more durable and less desirable

    Suprisingly, all of them! Not one has been broken or lost!
    I think that's testmament to the quality of the camera though, the staff love having them and so they take care of them.

    No teacher can go without one for even a day now, they're busy filling up my file server with photo's of everything the pupils do all day!!
