Default looking for a 2 mp starter for college daughter

I'm overwhelmed by all of the choices I'm facing! Here's what I'm looking for in a digital camera for my college daughter who will be traveling in Europe with the camera.

under $200
2mp min
good zoom - at least 3x optical
good battery life
quick recovery between pictures

she mainly wants to print 4x6 snapshots but the zoom is important for travel pics.

I've looked at Kodak easy share, canon a60 and others but could use some help! Thanks.

Welcome to the forum shopper!

A60 hands down. Itís a great 2MP camera. Excellent image quality and fast shot to shot speeds. The only problem with the A60 is that it comes with alkaline batteries that are pretty much worthless. For about $30 you can get 4 NiMH rechargeable batteries with a 1 hour charger. Plus you will also need a 128MB compact flash card, which will hold about 76 shots at the highest sitting; which you an get for about $50

I second the Canon A60. Excellent camera for the cost. Superior to all other cameras in the 200 USD price range that I am aware, considering features/functinoality.
