I think the Kodak DC3400 or an equivlent would be best for a kid. They take great pictures and you can find them on eBay for around $150. I had a DC3400, and it was excellent. Took great pictures and is very well built to withstand the beatings a child might give it.

I would try the Olympus D490Z. You can try this web site: http://store.yahoo.com/choiceonedigital/test1.html.

I owned this camera and it produces great pictures. It has a 3X optical zoom, 2.1 mp and it very compact. The price is $153 at this site and it is refurb.

Take a look at what is on sale at your local OfficeMax/OfficeDepot/AcmeOfficeSupply/... Those places seem to have the best deals on the cheaper cameras. I think their customers are buying digicams as note-taking aids where things like ease of use, durability, ... are more important than picture quality.

BillDrew,
The prob is that i live in India, and there are no branches of any of the stores recommended by you.
I just want the camera to be available on an online store so that i could order it over the internet and get it delivered to my brother's place in the US.
