Wanting a cheap point and shoot camera that I can throw in my pack when out biking. Doesn't need to be anything fancy as I have a Canon 550d for better pics. Just needs to be small, light and takes decent pics outdoors.

Was looking at the Canon IXUS 150, anybody into cameras that can point me in the right direction?

    I'd be tempted to get something like the Fuji Finepix XP70. Not sure how good the photos from it are though.

    We have had a few point and shoot digitals in the family and I have found the Fuji to be pretty good, don't get Samsung as the sports mode (I presume you'll be taking some moving shots) is pants on our one.

    Sony WX350. Excellent camera, great optical zoom, good shooting in iffy light (so most riding conditions then!).
