    Best Digital Camera for a special school

    Our Sony Mavica FD 200's are coming to the end of their life and I was wondering what everyone else is using in schools. We have the CD-500 model, but its incredibly slow and difficult to use, for staff that is.

    Anyone recommend a robust, user friendly camera ? Thats not worth nicking?

    Thanks

    Kevin

    If you want something fairly robust and simple, the Digital Blue Snap! cameras are pretty good. Seen them in use in a nursery by 3 and 4 year olds, and all have survived so far! I think they are 3 megapixel, and around £80 each.

    We bought some fujis for art they have optical zoom but the lens is contained in a housing so the moving parts are not susceptible to dust etc...

    That model has been discontinued now though.

    The fuji range that look like dslr's

    Thanks for the replies. Thinking of purchasing four Fuji, because, as you say they are fairly robust and chunky
