The battery cover breaks easily and in 3 different stress points. The replacement cost for the battery cover is more than half the cost of a newer camera with more features, more zoom, more megapixels. This camera will last about 3 - 4 years with normal use.

Minolta Dimage Z2
I already own a Canon 300D which my wife hates and refuses to use. So was given the task of buying a small, light and easy to use digicam. She had already expressed an interest in the Canon A75 (we used to own the A40 and liked it). Or the Nikon CP3200 which her parents owned and liked.
However the Z1 (and Z2 but beyond budget) had caught my eye. I found an online shop offering it for £170, roughly the same as the A75 and CP3200. It has the same Mp plus a much better spec.... (read more)
