Default Need Help On A New Camera Purchase

Hello everyone, how are you all doing? I am looking for the best recommendations on a digital camera with the max price spent being $110. I understand I won't be getting the world's best camera or all the best features but I'm not looking for all of that. I am just looking for a camera to take some pictures from time to time & my only mandatory feature would be some sort of optical zoom.

I am looking for specific model suggestions & hopefully suggestions as to places I can go purchase this camera at in person. I live outside NYC but go there almost daily so any store within it will be just fine. I hope to possibly pick a camera up today so I have about 12-14 hours before I'd probably leave. Please leave all your suggestions here & thank you all in advance.

I came across three cameras @ J&R which caught my eye. Any opinions? They were:


KODAK CX6200 2.1 (99.98)

FUJI FILM FinePix A205 ($109.98)

The cents should be .88 but it isn't coming up in the original post.

The Fuji looks like a nice little camera for that price. Steve’s review: http://www.steves-digicams.com/2003_...fuji_a205.html Keep in mind you will have to buy at least a 64Mb xD card and a charger and NiMH batteries to get good use of the camera. One use batteries will very much limit your use of the camera as will the included 16Mb card.

I wouldn’t consider anything without an optical zoom. Digital zoom is useless.
