Re: Cheap pocket camera

Been looking at 2nd hand high end models and new ones but am unsure. I guess 2nd hand I can spend less and if it does get damaged it doesn't matter as much

Re: Cheap pocket camera

A little over your budget but still in the ball park is one of the Olympus Tough cameras. Something like this would be ideal I think'

Absolutly agree. I loaned one to my son to take snowboarding and have never got it back. I got a new one and have used it in VERY harsh environments (Kids pool party, Sea spray, blown ash from Bar-b-Que)

Wash it under the tap, give it a shake and it's good as new.

Picture Quality is VERY good and it is extreamly easy to use.
