I am trying to do this at the moment as mine got stolen but there's too much choice.
SO can anyone recommend me one with the following criteria:
- quick shutter speed
- ability to muck around with settings
- more than 6/7 px
- good optical zoom
- **viewfinder** as well as LCD screen this is proving most difficult)
- can record videos with sound
oh and between £150-200....thaaaaaanks!
