At present I use a Pentax Optio M20 - this unit now has a few years on its back and I am looking for advice on replacement - the usage is occasional - shoot and snap - I have no grat knowledge so would prefer replacement unit to be as simple and easy as possible

Hi and welcome.

Have a look at the Canon PowerShot A4000 IS at around 89 Clicky (http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/canon_powershot_a4000_is_review/conclusion/)
It has good image quality and comes with Smart Auto and Easy modes allowing you to just point 'n shoot.

And don't forget. Post processing is an important part of photography and should be used to sharpen and enhance pictures taken with your camera. If you don't have an imaging editor, then use the one in my signature below. There are 32 video tutorials-Clicky (http://ictpublish.com/pixlr/) to get you started. The most useful is the Adjusting levels-Clicky (http://ictpublish.com/pixlr/Videoes/06_Levels/06_Levels.html) and for even more adjustment. The Curves tool-Clicky (http://ictpublish.com/pixlr/Videoes/07_Curves/07_Curves.html) is a must (it's my favourite all-in-one adjuster). My Resize-Crop-Sharpen tutorial below, will get your pics ready for the internet or whatever :cool:
