Recommend me a camera…
I’ve decided that i’m gonna use some Xmas vouchers to buy a camera, specifically for when i am out riding and see an awesome view
I’m after something which is fairly robust, but more importantly, is easy to use with thick gloves on
I am looking to spend up to £150 – any suggestions??

Compact? SLR? Inbetween?
For £150 you can get a pretty good camera these days, though probably not a full blown SLR… It depends what is most important to you in a camera though. If you want to be able to use it with thick gloves on, I’m thinking a tiny camera with a touch screen wouldn’t necessarily be of benefit to you.
I’d have a look at something like the following for an idea of a powerful compact camera, that is currently a bargain price, and being a Canon you know you are getting the best quality product…Posted 6 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
For riding, pocketability is important- I tried bigger cameras but I always end up with a compact. And never been disappointed with an Ixus- they’re not “ruggedised”, they’re just tough as old boots by design. My old 800is was an amazing bit of kit, the kicking it took was ridiculous.Posted 6 years agoMatt24kSubscriber

These are very tough cameras.
