    I have my Canon DSLR and several lenses for serious shooting and a couple of bridge cameras for other events, but I'm looking for a small point and shoot that I can just stick in my handbag for everyday shooting. I know everyone has personal preferences but i'd be interested in people's views please. Something small, easily connectable with a rechargeable (and replaceable) battery. Thanks in advance.

    Can you get the rx100 at this level ? I have the mk2 and it takes great photos, loads of details, tiny, even done the Milky Way with it. My wife took it to NYC and it was fab

    Shame it's like a bar of soap :banghead:

    You might be able to get the Sony RX100 MkI for that budget. Great camera but it doesn't have an electronic viewfinder, which is why I upgraded to the MkIII/MkIV version down the line.

    My missus uses the Lumix LX5

    Great little camera ans has RAW support too.

    Not exactly a point and shoot (AF and zoom lens) but a very nice little camera.

    On eBay for under a ton if you're lucky.

    I have an RX100 Mk2 for this. I never use flash and find it great indoors.

    Hmmm, would have gone for one with at least a 1" sensor! But if it's good enough

    Hi Tracey:)! I have a Canon Ixus 205 - it was my first digital camera. For what it is, it's great and I've taken lots of photos with it that I've been happy with. It's not my main camera now but I often stick it in my pocket/bag!

    Good luck! I hope you get much enjoyment from it:canon:! There's a thread here somewhere about Canon Ixus models...

    Thanks Elizabeth, that's exactly my reason for buying it. I have my Canon 50d, a Minolta and Panasonic bridge cameras, all of which are very good when I want to do something more serious but slightly more bulky than for everyday snapping. This will live in my handbag for everyday use. Getting it's first trip out in Blackpool next weekend :)
