I've finally figured out what camera I want! (Woohoo)
Its the Canon PowerShot SX30 IS Digital Camera
(14.1 MP, 35x Ultra Wide-angle Optical Zoom) 2.7 Inch Vari-angle Purecolor LCD
(images from http://www.ukdigitalcameras.co.uk)
The cheapest place I've found it to be is ukdigitalcameras for £299.99!
(Jessops sell its for £350 pffft)
I really wanted a camera with a flip lcd screen, HD recording and ofc good at taking pictures.
I've been reading up so much over these past few days and this camera ticks all boxes.
However there are all sorts of other little bits that need to be purchased too.
Lowepro Edit 110 Shoulder Bag
SanDisk Extreme Pro SDHC Memory Card
Camlink TPPRE20 Premium Photo and Video Tripod
and an Energizer CA7L Digital Camera Battery (spare)
I think that's all I can think of! If any of you think I've missed anything please let me know!
