I would either buy the Fuji Finepix S-602 or the Olympus C-5050. Both have very good reviews everywhere, in mags and on the net.

Best thing is to look around for what people say about the camera. Try www.dpreview.com they have some good reviews etc.

I bought a very good Digital Camera Magazine today and it had a review of the Olympus C-5050. It gave it 89%. This is very good indeed. They had nothing but praise for it. The niggles they had were not that important.

They gave the Fuji Finepix S602 86%. Nothing in it really. The Fuji does produce superb pictures and it handles like an SLR type camera. I like both of them. Having read many reviews of both i am still not sure which to go for. I have tried both in my local camera shop and i was more swayed towards the Fuji for they way it looked, felt and how good the pictures looked from it. It would be my 100% choice if it was a true 5mp camera.

I am aiming to buy either one within the next month or so.

All the best in your search.

Sorry, i am from the U.K. so i can't say what camera you can get for the money you have available. Maybe gibson can help you there.
All the best though.

261 won't buy you a great Digital camera (Good manual settings etc etc).
My research has been for the middle range Cameras. 500 - 600.
Sorry
