£115 Fujifilm FinePix S1500 Digital Camera - Black (10MP, 12x Optical Zoom) 2.7 inch LCD

If versatility and functionality are what you are looking for then the FinePix S1500 is the camera for you. This superzoom camera is surprisingly compact; especially when you consider that it packs a massive 12x zoom.

The 10 Megapixel CCD sensor produces sharp, high resolution photos with vivid colours, perfect for enlarged prints or viewing on the large, clear 2.7" screen.

Thanks to its small size, lightweight design and automatic features, it's a top choice for days out with the family.

And if you want to advance your photographic skills and get creative there's also the option of Aperture and Shutter Priority modes.

With its superbly lightweight casing and easy to handle design, you'll be surprised how dinky this camera really is.

The FinePix S1500 features a Continuous Shooting mode ideal to capture sporting events or other action scenes at 13.5 frames per second in a burst-check this stat, I can't see 13.5 fps.

Once you've taken your shots, High Speed Playback lets you view them as a streaming sequence.

Instant zoom makes it easy to frame and compose shots of moving subjects at high zoom settings.

A selectable frame on the LCD screen lets you track your subject and when the shutter is released, Instant Zoom boosts the zoom ratio and captures only the selected area as a full sized image.

You can purchase the Fujifilm Finepix S1500 from Amazon for £115 (opens in new tab).
