    Well Im off to spain this afternoon as some of you know...
    and my camera has packed up :cry:

    its been abit tempremental for a while now, and it has done this before (lense out and wont turn on)!!
    but not sure I can risk it... Im a picturetakeracholic... and without a camera for my lil girls first hol is a no no :nope:

    I mean it will prob turn back on again like it did before... but what if I miss important picture taking opportunities :cry:

    Ok so clearly I have to go and buy a new one... :hissy: all i need... good old credit card though... there for emergencys!! :)

    but my question is... shall I get one from tesco.. they are relatively cheap etc... or get one form duty free at the airport?!?
    quick girls times running out :(

    Given the choice, Duty Free sounds better!

    Have a lovely time! :D

    You'll probably still spend more at Duty Free but you might be lucky and get a much better one for a few pounds more than a cheapie at Tescos. Good luck though, hope you get one.

    I'd be the same, I take my DSLR and 2 compacts everywhere I go and am about to buy another!

    I would go for Duty Free, for the same reasons as Pops :)

    I'm a photoholic too - the cameras come everywhere - 2 DSLRs and a compact!

    thanks fellow picture takers :)

    so what is it I look for??

    the one I have is 10.1 mega pixels and a high speed continuous shutter... I like that it takes a picture very quickly and I can take a few in a row!! (one of my friends cameras have a double flash and it fools everyone :rofl:)

    so is the continuous shutter bit the function that allows me to take picture after picture??

    any brands that you find particularly decent!!??

    Oh I would have said Tesco as they have a good range and if something went wrong you don't have far to go to return it xx

    i asked my mum (as I always do and she said tesco) reasons being she doesnt think duty free is that cheap and ill be put under too much pressure!!

    So i went to tesco and got one for less than £80.. had £50 off of it :) and its a yummy turquoise colour :):)

    panic over :)
