The thing to know is that the megapixel rating is to do with image size, NOT image quality. You need no more than 3 megapixel.The cheapest cameras will use AA batteries so you'll need to invest in some rechargables. More expensive use Li Ion, like your mobile phone. These hold a charge for much longer.Do a bit of reading on the older cameras on www.dpreview.com and www.steves-digicams.com. Pick well known brands, Nikon, Canon etc. The research is worth while so you narrow it down to a few cameras that fit the bill.Check out, Ebay, your local camera shop, Jessops, Tesco, Argos etc for any deals. Bear in mind that most camera come with a small memory card so you'll need to budget for an upgrade is you want to store more than a dozen or so pictures.
