Looking for Digital Camera

Hey everyone, I have gone through a lot of the deals posted here, and they are at great prices. But, I also want to hear recommendations for a type of digital camera (from your experience or preferences). I have an old Kodak Easy Share Camera, and have used Sony (from friends and family). Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks!

What kind of cameras are you looking for? Just a point and shoot? DSLR?

If your looking for a point and shoot type then I would recommend the fuji finepix.

We have the 7.1 megapixel version of this camera, not same model but same style and absolutely love it. Very easy to use.

OK, although I would love a DSLR (after checking the link you sent me), I am still a point and shoot (and so is my wallet) camera person...so that is what I am looking for...

for simple point and shoot..i've been a fan of the canon digital elph series..they're small and have a bunch of functions..picture quality is great..the only thing i don't like is that the casing isn't always slim like sony cybershot or nikon coolpix..but for me..i got for canon elphs..i've bought a few of them..starting with the canon sd100, i think..

I agree with nimrodboy3. I've had a few canon digital elphs and they are great cameras. Takes great pictures and easy to use. My last one had a 3" screen which is nice to view. You can usually find a good deal posted here under $100. Good luck.
