Personally , I wouldn't buy secondhand because the digital cameras are updated so quickly.  Also, unless you can try before you buy, you might get something with scratched lens or has been dropped etc.

Best wait a while and save some more I think, these are some pictures my brother in law took in the winter of 2010,

Wow Ashleigh 2.

It looks exactly like my back garden at this precise time and moment! Unfortunately the orange glow is just street lamps.

Fairy thank you for Heuchera name

David, made mental note of camera problem, should I ever have such a camera Bridge photo well worth another showing great flowers.

Beautiful pic, KEF

Btw, the memory card problem could happen with any camera.....or any memory card to be precise.

Just spent a while catching up on this thread, stunning photo's everyone I especially like your seed heads Fidget and thanks for the link to Danny Greens site David, amazing, I now want to go to Finland and Iceland!

If I were to buy a camera for around £80ish what would you recommend? and would I get more for my money if I bought second hand or is that a false economy?

Ashleigh - I agree with fidget, avoid second hand  cameras....certainly unless you know the camera & seller.

Perhaps worth noting that you can buy a new Canon Powershot A2500 (Argos) for around £60. This has a 5x zoom & 16 mega-pixels and quite capable of taking some very good pictures.

Oh course, it wouldn't be a match for Danny Green's shots.

Gorgeous lilies Kef, thanks David, and your photo is amazing, should be on blown up on somebody's wall, we only had one light frost here and that was before Christmas, these winter shots are actually making me miss frost snow and ice, I never thought that would happen!

You're welcome, Ashleigh.......well given that it was posted on my Flickr account, it most probably has or been sold.

For what it's worth I no longer post on Flickr.

When I saw the snowy shots I thought the same as you Ashleigh2 and found I have actually missed seeing snow this winter (I suppose it's not too late for snow though).

KEF, beautiful Lillies, I have loads of Lilly pics and must dig them out.

David K you are mean  I couldn't justify paying for one like that today but bought a bargain one in need of TLC for £2.40 instead, I felt sorry for it and it will be beautiful before we know it
