    Jesus, thats some major bootleg! I never download software for the hell of it. Its always those that I need to use.
    I must have given you the wrong impression, because i haven't got a major bootleg

    its not that much, i was talking about backing up my whole hard disk, i haven't got that much questionable software (and any that i do have wasn't downloaded but borrowed off mates), i have quite a lot of real software (like patches and drivers and things like that) that come free off the internet etc, which is an inconvenience losing it.

    I keep those things on cd-rs. And add to teh massive stockpile when a better one comes out. Doesnt take much time to upgrade...infact you should but a 2nd usb nard drive. and you can do this fancy "equilibrate" function on it so that your stuff is backed up onto a second removable hard drive...

    Yeah I bought it from Jessops Online www.jessops.co.uk.

    It was in 2002 though.
    Fuji Finepix are great - I've got the A203 (on Jessops website for £99.90 at the mo) and it's a fab lil' camera. Not an ultra-small fits in palm, or credit card slim, but its still small and super cute. The pictures are also brilliant resolution, and it has an LCD screen. Also takes short video clips (without sound) or can be used as a webcam. lol, i know i must sound like an advert now, but it's seriously cool, and if you can stretch the extra £30 I'd say it's definitely worth it - better to get something that you'll be happy with for a while now than to spend £60 on something that you'll get frustrated with soon.

    *and relax. fuji advert now over*

    is it better or worse than the A205S (i assume its better because of the higher model number). that's the one Im looking to buy, and it also costs £99.83 at ebuyer (although it costs £125 at jessops).

    I am using a cheap Benq camera which I got for £65. It's very light and compact and takes reasonable photos if you scale them down a bit.

    Here is a pic I took

    We were looking at the 1300 last night and there had been some complaints about the flash which put poor Gemsy off.

    Yours is the 1500 - what's it like?

    Yep, everything seemed good apart from the flash.

    Maybe I should consider a model up, I doubt there will be many great benefits though, apart from the picture capacity - which is quite important.

    I know someone who has bought this camera:

    http://www.firebox.com/index.html?di...roduct&pid=640

    It is so small, you can put it on your keyring! The picture quality is brilliant but the only problem is it doesnt have a flash. Still not bad for £20.

    Actually I have both of them so can easily make a comaprism. I haven't had any problems with the flash with the BenQ yet but in general i think the quality of the Fuji is much better. Not only are the pictures much better (not sure why they are both 1.3M pixcels - maybe it's lens quality or something) but so are the controls and menu system.

    However the camera is 2 years old, pretty big compared to the benq and eats batteries really fast.

    Just buy a memory card - I got a 64mb card for about £12 which stores something like 100 pics at the best resolution.

    Actually,

    Last night Gemsy was thinking about the Benq 1300.

    And I was comparing it to the Benq 1500.

    Yeh, well I quite fancy the BenQ 1500 now, looks good and reliable, which is what I need. I don't want a cheap one because it has important photos but I don't want an expensive one either...this is about right!
