    Cheap Digital Camera (sub £30) needed

    Hi,

    My school is looking to refresh its's camera fleet(!!). Does anyone know of anything under £30? Doesn't need to have any bells and whistles. In fact, the more basic the better. Have only managed to find the and Alba job for about 17 quid but reviews are terrible. Any help gratefully received.

    Cheers, Stu

    Avoid Praktica if you can, we brought 2 of their cheap cameras and the LCD display would only work when the flash was off... this was one of many querky "features"

    Edit: to be a bit more specific the model we have had trouble with is the DPix520

    Second hand from eBay? I'm sure you could find plenty.

    Unfortunately, cameras don't last too long here! Cheaper the better. Cheers.
