Any recommendations for an inexpensive, easy-to-use camera just to take holiday photos and a good place to buy in Larnaca. The last camera I had the film was on a roll and when it was finished you took it to Boots to have it processed - that'll give you some idea of how long ago it was and my expertise!

Thanks

I wouldn't worry to much about the technology side of it Kizi. i'm a techno numpty but i get by.
Most cameras now are full of pre sets, just turn the dial to what you want to take ie landscape, sunset etc.

For more info go on Amazon and type in your requirements and price range then read the feedback on each one, it might help you make your mind up, you DON'T need to spend a fortune.

Whatever you decide on, order some spare batteries to go with it, nothing worse than the battery running out and no replacement.

Thanks for that advice Badger, no I don't want to spend a fortune. But you've told me something that I didn't know - cameras need batteries nowadays!!
Come back Kodak Instamatic (yes I'm that old!)
