The Coolpix S10 is available for £215 from Amazon:

“The Nikon Coolpix S10 is a return to the past in terms of design, with the retro twisting body being first seen on Coolpix models like the 900 and 950. Nikon have brought that design bang up to date with a 10x optical zoom lens (38-380mm), large 2.5 inch LCD screen and maximum ISO of 800. Advanced Vibration Reduction helps to combat camera shake by shifting the camera’s sensor, an essential feature with such a long lens, whilst the unique swivel body allows greater freedom to shoot from different angles.”
