I need a bridge camera for doing photography/recording, reason why is because I want to get Into recording and editing, and I have the opportunity of skate parks for doing so, thanks everyone, I have a budget of £100-£150. I will be getting a go pro in the future.

i would rather get it brand new as i can get a warranty on the camera, plus there are some deals on the cameras that you can find!

New is always better; for reasons you mentioned. My thoughts were that you are looking at very low end (if any) in new at that price level.

Yes I agree with you regarding eBay. That's why I mentioned that it would be better if you could try it before you buy.

I am not a fan of low end products and that's why I do not recommend low end products..

Other than obvious examples, I am not knowledgeable enough about digital cameras to know what you necessarily consider "low end." For something like recording lessons or tutorials, what would you say is the minimum you'd consider reasonable to use?
OP is this what you'll be doing with the camera? Will you be taking closeups as well? How important is color fidelity?

"Bridge cameras" (new) start at above your £150 price point. I have one which was $330 when it was new a couple years ago, a very typical price for what is known as a bridge.

Some of the better point and shoots will fall into your budget, but you'd have to explore the feature sets to see what works. And get thee to a camera shop to try out a few.

I have a Fuji HS10, which does very, very good macro shots. But it, and the newer models (HS50EXR currently), are above your price point.
