Default Best inexspensive Digicam???

What are your picks for a very inexspensive ( $150 or less ) digital camera for a 10 yr old. I know there is a lot of garbage in that price range but there has to be something worth buying. Thanks

Well.. I don't know which one would be a good digicam in that price range but I suggest you to look in the cam specs for a CCD sensor instead of a CMOS sensor...

Default Best < 150 cam

My 10 year old loves his JamCAm 3.0. At $35 is a great deal. Downside is .3MP and no lcs to view on the spot. Got JamX software for OS X (it's free, if you need it).

If you wan more, try to get something with an optical zoom,but that will be difficult.

I would not spend too much more as the camera will get dropped or banged.

Cameras to consider (and read reviews on):
Olympus D-370 or Brio D-100
HP Photosmart 120 or 315
Fuji FinePix A101 or A200
Canon PowerShot A100 or A200

Try www.dealtime.com. There are several olympus cameras that will meet your price range. You can also go the www.olympusamerica.com and shop for some of the reconditioned cameras. My criteria would be 1.3 mp and an optical zoom of at least 2x
