Run through this list and avoid anything without an optical zoom. http://www50.shopping.com/xPP-Digita...ange_under_180

CF and SD cards are the least expensive. XD and Memory Stick are pricey and generally limited to Fuji, Olympus and Sony cameras. You can probably get by with a 64Mb card for a 2Mp camera. 128Mb is better, especially if you go for a higher Mp camera.

Plan on getting a set of NiMH batteries and a charger for whatever you buy. One use batteries will limit the camera use and are pricey. Alkaline batteries donít last long and one use lithium batteries are very pricey. You can pick up a charger and NiMH batteries at Wal-mart for probably $25 Ė I havenít checked lately.
