Amazing picture David. Been looking at some cameras online around the £300 mark. Nikons and canons. Basically, what should I be looking for and compare?
Have a look at the Panasonic Range - most of their cameras now have Leica lenses and they are superb!
My current version is the TZ40 and is packed with features, is small enough to fit comfortably in a pocket, has a macro setting and an amazing telphoto facility for such a small camera. If you have a smart phone it will wirelessly transfer pics you take onto the phone just by placing the phone close to the camera, so that you can email them instantly to friends and family (though that function does not work with an Apple iPhone! - transfer to the iPhone that is!). Price for the TZ40 is around £230 in stores such as John Lewis but you may be able to get it cheaper from specialised Camera shops (if it does what you want it to).
