Default What Camera? :)

I would like to buy a digital camera for my upcoming study abroad in Brazil, however I'm not really sure what would be best. I'm looking for a camera that is easy to use, sleek and easy to hide (as I will be living in Rio where there is a lot of pick pocketing), and has a rechargeable battery. I really don't want to spend more than 150$ because let's face it, I'm a college student and poor. Any suggestions would be great thanks. Shannon

Welcome to the Forum. We're delighted that you dropped by.

The Samsung SL-420 sells for around $100.00 to $110.00. It has 5X optical zoom, it is pleasantly small, and uses rechargeable batteries. It seems to meet you specifications quite nicely and it is capable of good images. It is roughly credit card size and about 5/8" thick.

Have a great day.
