i bought a fugifilm finepix a345 and it's my first camera. it does a good job at what i am using it for ( short movies), and i was wondering whats a good camera for under 200 dollars that i can buy for a friend ? Is this the best camera i can get for under 200 dollars ?

Thanks, Scott

The review of your camera on this site suggests three other possibilites in the same basic price range, if you are looking for alternatives. But it is worth thinking about what you want to do here. If you expect that you and your friend will be exploring photography and taking pictures together, you may just want to get the same camera that you have. A significant part of learning to take pictures is learning to use the specific device you have -- how does the white balance setting on your camera affect what you get, or the night portait mode, or what-have-you. If you're planning on getting deeper into the hobby together, having the same equipment can help that process. The reality is that almost any camera will be more than adequate for developing your skills. The most important determiner of photo quality is the photographer, FWIW
