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.
