Hi every1. My name is Pritesh and ive now been taking photos properly for about 3 years now. Got myself an embarassing HP R707 compact. Not bad for a beginner a few years ago, but i now feel that i want more control over aperture and shutter speed, but in compact form, dont want a d-slr. And ive got a budget of about £300 ish. Any idea's as to which models are out there?

Hi Pritesh, welcome to the Cameralabs forums.

To see the compacts we recommend, check out:

Alternatively, to see the super-zooms we recommend, check out:

Several of these models offer decent manual control!

Hello madindian81!

"compact" as in <300g or is the Panasonic FZ50 still in your range of definition of compact?

Thanks for the replies. I'll check those website out and see wat they say. the shape of the FZ50 to me is a little on the bulky side, although ive not seen wat size it is in real life. Im looking at models that are the similar size and shape of the canon powershot G7, or the shape of the panasonic TZ3. The G7 has the winning vote at the moment, but, im still looking around. Be nice if i can also sneak in 28mm starting point for the wide end of the zoom, as opposed the the regular 35-36mm.

If you're shooting landscape and/or architecture, the 28mm wide-angel is very high value!
