    I'm rather fond of the Canon line, but I'm using the G series which is a bit more expensive than your range. Check out the powershot series. They may be closer price wise.

    Normally I'd suggest a Sony but their glass doesn't get very good until a bit higher range than that. I'd suggest a Canon or Nikon, Nikon especially if you want excellent macro.

    Take it from me.I sold mail order cameras for a year and a half.I seriously cant even look at a camera anymore.And for your price range i would DEFFINANTLY go with a Canon powershot a-75. Most places sell it for 179.99. Dont let them jerk you on accesorys.A warranty is only like 10 dollara. Get yourself a nice memory card (a 128mb will do you just fine) they run for like 25-30 bucks.And you should be set.


    If you want me to make a suggestion.This is the place i used to work for
    http://stores.ebay.com/myVbuy_W0QQsspagenameZl2QQtZkm

    Still are great friends with the people who work there.Just dont buy any accesorys from them.

    I really wanna get a Canon Powershot A400. They're reasonably priced (below $200), they're tiny, 3.2 MP, 2.2 optical zoom. Check that out.

    I'm rocking a Kodak EasyShare DX7630 6.1 megapixel.


    It makes taking pictures more addictive than crack cocaine
