Dead Cam

Calling any camera hounds - my trusty old SLR camera (Fuji FinePix S9500 RIP) has finally died after 11 years. No hope of recovery as a) the portal in the cam has fallen inside and cannot be retrieved b) the photo cards for said cam are obsolete and even like-for-like replacements are as rare as hen's teeth (believe me I have looked both in shops/chemists and online). Looking for suggestions re new cam with zoom.

I am not a newbie, but not professional, so please bear this in mind. Thanks #deadslr, #RIPSLR

How much do you want to spend?

£500 ($677.25) or less. I will have to save up over the next few months.

You can get one of the Canon Rebel series cameras, like a T6 and a fairly good 17-85 zoom lens for that price. I bought an earlier version of the same for my wife a couple of years ago, and ended up using it myself for a year. It will be a big step up from your Fuji.

Fuji also has a few mirrorless cameras in your price range, but without lenses. But if you have lenses already they might fit.

I will definitely take this on board as part of my fact finding mission - thank you :-)
