Go to this web site: https://emporium.olympus.com/innards...ub_category=22.

It is the refurb site for Olympus. They provide a 90 day warranty through Olympus. You will several cameras that meet your price range and specs.

Default Be careful with Refurbs!

I would not recommend any kind of refurbed cameras, warranty or not. Plus that is not that long of a security blanket. You are likely going to be limited to HP and Kodak cameras, and maybe a Fuji. $250 seems to kind of be an in between price right now....not enough for the 3 MP low end, but on the upper ends of the 2MP....though many of the Canons, Sonys, Nikons, and the like at at that price and above. There are a lot of options....the big consideration would be what MP level do you want to enter at....look at some of Steve's recent reviews of the Fujis and the HP's then go and check out prices on CD net, remember to buy from a reputable place, maybe you can find a good deal at Ritz!

Good Luck!

Get a Nikon coolpix 2500, they have good reviews and cost $279 at Ritz Camera and Walmart.
