    You can get a nice little point and shoot camera for that budget.

    Don't expect much of an optical zoom or advanced features, and just search on amazon or something

    Well, what would you like to take photos of? Do you intend to use video as well? What situations is it going to be used in?

    Will you be taking photos in the dark?
    Will you be taking photos underwater?
    Will you be taking photos at sea?

    These are the kinds of things we need to know. Even cheap ass cameras have varying pros and cons. Ill leave you in the hands of SnowRose though, I hate doing this kind of thing and she seems to be the one who helps noobs out around here

    Sorry guys but I'm going to spoil the party here and just come out and say it.


    Bellissima, you cannot get anything that takes pictures worth looking at within your budget. If you want a camera and that's all you have to spend, put it in the bank and save up some more.

    i think this was the wrong place to ask because you're all photographers so want high spec stuff....

    Well this is a photography forum!

    Even if you want one of those cute little touch-screen compact cameras, you are going to have to spend more than £50. My sister got a samsung compact camera recently (Samsung isn't a very good brand, so they are cheap) and even that cost about £200.

    Harsh, plus I disagree. Plenty of cameras at that sort of price are fine for general use - take photos of nights out to put on Facebook and so forth.

    I want it for myself. However, I don't believe everyone should. :dontknow:

    Have a look at the Nikon Coolpix L25. If you can push £50 a bit, the Nikon Coolpix S3000. Bear in mind the colour can affect price - unpopular colours cost less.
