I am in the market for a new camera and need some advice. For a while, I thought I wanted a fairly elaborate camera (ala, Fuji S5000 or Kodak 6490) but after thinking about it and considering what I would use it for, that would be overkill.

We need something for basic family photos, snapshots, vacation pictures, etc. I'm not a photo enthusiast, probably would use the full auto mode 95% of the time. Mostly 5X7 prints (maybe an 8X10 once in a while, but honestly, I have never printed a picture from a regular film camera that big, so probably not).

So, after much reading a browsing, here are my choices: Fuji A205, Canon A60, Nikon Coolpix 2200, Kodak 6230.

I can get the Fuji A205 for about $79, Canon A60 for about $140, Nikon Coolpix for about $130, 6230 $150.

I'm leaning toward the A205 because of the price but Canon A60 gets pretty good reviews too.

Somebody, please give me some guidance! :? Thanks!
