OK if you had £200 to spare which digital compact camera would you consider buying and why?
I sort of fancy a camera that fits in my pocket has a decent zoom range and 12+ Megapixels.
Most of all I really want a good finished image that truly represents the piccie that I have captured!
OK I could stretch the budget a tiny bit more but not by much
Any advice or pointers would be appreciated.

Hi Peter, Without a shadow of a doubt, I would buy this one, Check the spec of this one time 400 quid compact, Reduced in price because a new model is around.....
Yup! A new model that does not have the very tidy optical viewfinder that this older and outdated 7100 has.....LOL....
Those sunny days when the screens are almost impossible to see, You just can't beat a viewfinder, Optical or EVF.
Anyhow check out the spec on that P7100, To see what I mean....
You are using a compact. I'd keep the money in your pocket or, if you must, invest in either a flash gun or a reflector.
Thank you cameracat, lovely little camera, will have a think about that one which is not a bad price

Thanks but I need a camera not a flash or reflector
I thought you had an x10 Peter, that Nikon is slightly larger, to big for a pocket.
canon powershot 220
I still have the X10 and I love it, really want a compact to take to work and use as a second camera
For your line of work then Peter something from the tough range.
Would still prefer a nice pocketable camera, suppose I want everything but the big prices!
£200 will not get you a lot these days
I'd buy a secondhand Panasonic LX5.
For pocketable, as in shirt-pocketable, you might want to look at this the Sony TX55.
I have to declare an interest.............. I took delivery of mine today. But I didn't pay the new price; I saved about £70 by buying 'nearly-new'.
Only taken a few pics and video clips so far but the quality seems decent enough. Although it is roughly the size of a credit card, it has a similar sized sensor to most compacts, i.e. 1/2.3".
Are these two camera`s suitable for a working fireman though
