Looking for a bridge camera less than 200. (prepared to use ebay)

Main focus is on good image quality and video is not necessary. Would like to be able to take good landscapes and good close ups. (as good as possible for the money that is, not expecting miracles)

Looking currently at the Fufifilm S1900 and the Sony H2O but open to ideas. Thanks.:)

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H50
Nikon Coolpix L110
Fujifilm Finepix S2500HD (18x zoom)
Fujifilm FinePix S1500 (12x zoom)


The fuji s1500 gets a great 88% rating from whatdigitalcamera, and is a mere 100 on ebay

Link to ebay (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/FUJIFILM-FINEPIX-S1500-10-MP-DIGITAL-VIDEO-CAMERA-FUJI-/190422644373?cmd=ViewItem&pt=UK_CamerasPhoto_DigitalCameras_DigitalCameras_J N&hash=item2c5612f695#ht_9966wt_1137)

I just bought my grandson a fuji fine pix s1500. It is last years model but well worth the money you could pick a new one up for about 120 if you shop around

The S1500s on eBay are at a good price, although the majority are (manufacturer) refubs. A step up from the S1500 is the higher spec S1800 (including much wider angle for landscapes) which is still well within your budget. You could just about pick it up, together with a couple of good memory cards, a cheapish case, charger and batteries for your 200. Check it out:
