Good Morning everyone

I am trying to work out which digital camera to buy my 14 year old daughter. She currently uses her phone to take pics but is going to stay with her Daddy in France for 3 weeks in the summer and wants something better to take pics with. Also something which provides a simple way to transfer the pics to the puter.

I am a single mum and can't afford lots of money.

Many thanks

Hi Kim.
I appreciate your situation, but it will help if you are able to quote a budget so that the cameras in your range can be considered. All the best.Mike.

Hi she won't go far wrong with this Canon for 49 Clicky (http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/canon-powershot-a1200-compact-digital-camera-black-09609830-pdt.html) now reduced in price!

Review here (http://www.cameralabs.com/reviews/Canon_PowerShot_A1200/)

However, (if she likes taking pics of herself and friends) the Samsung PL120 at 49 (refurbished by Samsung so good as new), has two screens!

I can thoroughly recommend the Canon A1200, easy to use, has a viewfinder, and results are tip top.

User Manual (http://www.samsung.com/uk/consumer/camera-camcorder/compact-cameras/2-view/EC-PL120ZBPBGB-support) takes a while to download so be patient.
