Right, I just broke my camera. It's an "Olympus FE-230." I know nothing about cameras, i'm going on holiday on the 20th and need a camera before then. I'm not looking for anything flash, nothing hi-tech, just a good camera, nothing expensive, something simple to use. I hardly ever use a camera.
Does this one look okay?
Or this one? Which would be better?
Or if not, is there any that you recommend? I don't really want to be spending over £50 if it can be helped.

They both look like pretty good cameras, not much difference between the two. Although the J28 one has a battery pack and the A160 runs on AA batteries, so whichever you'd prefer really? Having one that runs on AA batteries can be quite good cos you can carry a couple of spare batteries with you if you're out for the day, and you won't have to charge it whilst on holiday cos you can just switch out the batteries.

I would also prefer one with the AA batteries, just because that is what I have used before, and I think battery pack ones could be a pain on holiday. My mom has a very similar one to the A160, and she likes it and it works well (although I did pay more for it). I'd say go for that one!

Thanks very much for your help I'm going to have a look at it today.
Oooo another quick thing - Memory cards. What size memory card would be sufficient? I'm not planning on taking 1000's of pictures. I have no idea what each one holds though.

Just did a quick search. For average sized pictures with a camera with the same megapixels as that one up there, a 2GB card would give you roughly 650 pictures, a 4GB would give you 1300. On the website with the camera they have a 4GB memory card for £15 when you buy that camera, which is half off.

I have a 4GB in my digi cam, it's plenty big enough! They do really cheap ones on Amazon with free delivery (£8.37) here

Thanks for all your help girls Just got back from shopping and I got a camera!
It's a Samsung PL50. It cost me £119.99 all together, a tad more than what I wanted to buy but I got it in a package, the camera itself, a 4GB memory card, a camera case and a 3year deal, where if I break it, stand on it, drop it in water, the screen cracks, ANYTHING. I get to bring it back and they will give me a new camera straight away, which for me, is brilliant because i'm so clumsy when it comes to cameras. Hence how I managed to stand on my old one and broke it.
This is my camera. Pretty in pink.http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/samsung-pl50-...ag=gg_goog_7904
