£76.79 4.0 MP for amazing-quality prints up to 20 × 30 in. (50 × 75 cm) 3X optical zoom, 5X advanced digital zoom On-camera Share button and Favorites feature On-camera cropping Kodak Color Science Continuous QVGA video featuring audio capture 13 easy-to-access scene modes and 3 color modes
I have a Kodak camera, and it has always been great for me, The most important thing about a camera is the Optical zoom, this is the REAL zoom of the camera, always ignore the digital zoom as its crap.
This first one is only £76.79 so its hardly gonna break your pocket. Read the reviews on it on Amazon, all very good.
If you can push the boat out a little then I would recommend the Sony DSC-S600
£117.00 Powered by AA-size batteries (two single-use alkaline batteries included) stores images on Memory Stick DUO or MS PRO DUO memory cards (32 MB internal memory included) 6-megapixel CCD captures enough detail for photo-quality 14 x 19-inch prints 2.0-inch LCD display 3x optical zoom High-sensitivity shooting mode increases ISO to maximum of 1000 Includes Cyber-shot Viewer software to organize and browse throughh photos on your PC.
At £117.00 its a bit more expensive than the Kodak, but it has more pixels which mean higher quality pictures.
Again read the reviews on Amazon, they are all good
And finally my third choice for you is a little bargain Olympus FE115
£89.00 5.0 million pixels 2.8x optical zoom (equiv. 38-106 mm) Bright Lens 1:3.0 (wide) - 5.0 (tele) Super macro mode up to 2 cm (wide) 28MB internal memory 5 Scene modes Movie recording function (up to memory card's capacity)
Review is good on Amazon, and this is a good little camera, decent optical zoom, a very good 5 megepixels.

Would reccomend Olympus, mega pixels are great, however the more pixels, the more storage space you have to have on the card, thus less photo's. Here is an examle, my camera is a canon EOS 350D www.canon.co.uk/For_Home/Product_Finder/Cameras/Digital_SLR/EOS_350D/index.asp?ComponentID=270585&SourcePageID=164046#1 on highest resolution, a 256mb card holds 64 shots, on the lowest setting, it will store 387 shots. I keep it on large which holds 126 photos. I suppose it depends what you want to do with the end photo's. I normally store them as a keepsake. I know that the setting I am on at the moment gives me a ballance between no of photo's I can take v's image quality to print.
If you are able, go to a local Jessops to view the camera in your hand before you buy one off the net. If you can, get a camera with a good zoom feature too, don't use digital zoom, it lowers the image quality. Hope this is helpful too. Oh yeah, get a card reader too, it saves battery life
I'd recommend anything by Canon if you're willing to pay for it. If not, Ebay works.
I've been using a Canon Powershot G5 for the past year or so, and it's been the best digital camera I have ever used. It can also be converted into a digital SLR if you're willing to buy lenses for it.
