Default Suggestions please...

I am so torn and have to make a choice soon...

I want to spend less then $300 on a digital cam... I've been looking at the Canon Powershot S200, and Powershot Canon S230.

I can get into 3mp cams for the same price but usually they don't ship with rechargable batteries etc...

I am going to buy 2 of whatever I decide upon. The end users are more of point and shoot users and I doubt will ever use any manual controls. I'd like them to be able to print 8x10 with reasonable quality, with services such as dotphoto.com, or ophoto.com.

Is the S230 worth the money for the upgrade to 3x zoom? Should I be looking at 3mp cams? What about brands other then Canon? If you are suggesting a cam can you suggest vendors with good pricing?

Looking for any comments you guys can give me.

Appreciate the help!

If I wanted a point and shoot I'd look no further than Fuji.

You can purchase the Olympus D550 at Walmart for under $300. This camera is 3mp and 3x optical zoom. I know that this camera does not come with rechargeable batteries but it can use the AA rechargeable batteries.

The cheapest with 3x zoom and rechargeables included is the Fuji FinePix 2600, if you can still find two. The new FinePix 2650 sells for the same price WITHOUT the charger and batteries (same feature set)!!!
