    Question need HELP compact camera

    doh
    just dropped my (ancient) Kodak V1273 12 Mpixels into the loch...............

    but it did ALL i needed - autofocus, telephoto (optical.?) upload to PC, edit, post, sorted

    need to buy new I think to get all the cables and charger (unless you have an old model..?..)

    what's the utmost bottom bottom line..?
    looked on eBay and gave up

    I do NOT have/need a modern phone with camera, IT access, travel data, news etc etc
    confirmed luddite here with PAYGo Tesco phone....


    please think ''State Pension'' and advise accordingly. NO bells nor whistles.............many thanks

    Search for a used Panasonic TS2 waterproof Camera on Ebay. The TS2 has a Leica lens. I have an old TS2 and am very satisfied.

    The approximate age and model is replaceable for about 12...

    Kodak EASYSHARE M341 12.2MP Digital Camera | eBay

    I'd go an extra fiver and get one thats been well looked after with all the accessories, they don't always say if they come with the batteries, charger etc, replacements for these for older cameras can be more expensive than the camera.

    again - thanks for that comment about parts

    no V1273 anywhere so I bought a mint Kodak V1073 (with battery and charger)
    and all my leads from the drowned V1273 are compatible

    also bought a neck cord..!..
