    Consider the Canon A570. Check Website dpreview.com for reviews of many cameras and prices.

    All of the major brands are good. Choose a brand that appeals to you. Then you have to think about getting a spare battery, what size memory card, if you want an extended warranty, how much you can afford, what size zoom, if you want manual controls, the size of the camera, finding a reliable place to purchase it, and the list goes on and on and on.......

    The first thing to realize is that almost any digital camera will take good pictures. If more people would read the manual more than once, they would be able to take better pictures. Usually, the person assumes it is the camera when it could be them not knowing exactly what to do. Just give yourself more photographic knowledge by doing more reading on the internet.

    I really believe buying a camera is an individual choice.

    The person needs to read alot of reviews on cameras so they can decide on the features that they really want and need.

    Go to the store and hold them so you can see if they feel comfortable in your hands. If possible, take some pictures in the store to check the quality of the pictures.

    I can only give a suggestion of what to look for in a new digital camera.

    Good Luck

    Fujifilm Finepix F10. I've owned mine for two years. It was $400 then but it's $150 now. It has good low light performance and good battery life. With the extra money you can buy a memory card.

    Look for the Canon A570 IS. It is 7mp, has image stabilization and a 4x zoom. The last time I priced it, it was $168 at http://www.buydig.com/ -- a reliable place to shop.

    Check out http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRICE2.HTM for cameras in that price range and then go to

    http://www.pricegrabber.com/ to actually price cameras simultaneously at multiple shops for comparison. And make sure the stores have good ratings; don't just go for the lowest price.

    I recently bought the Kodak V 803 series camera. Wonderful.Lots of fun features. Love that you can take movies with it. Also, if you want you can get the printer dock (extra) so you don't have to take the disc elsewhere to have the photos printed.

    Take a look at Nikon L12 or L15. These are great cameras with sufficient resolution and are packed with useful features.
