I bought a new camera!
3x optical zoom
Lithium Ion rechargeable battery.
And it takes the same memory cards as I had for my old one so I didn't need to get new ones.
£99.99 - bit of an expensive impulse buy but something I've been wanting since September and needing since not long after that.
Should be much better than my old one. It's charging at the moment and I can't wait to get some trial photos with it hopefully later today but if not than tomorrow!
