Default Newbie looking for advice in choosing a camera

Hi, I am looking to purchase a digital camera and have been doing some research but I am not really sure what I need or want.

I primarily would be posting pictures to a photo spot from which one can order prints. I will not be printing them myself or wanting pics larger then the standard 4 x 6. We do a lot of camping and would be taking nature pictures.

Can anyone recommend a good inexpensive, $200 or less camera that would be good for a newcomer to digital photograpy.

Try the olympus d520. check prices at www.dealtime.com or www.pricescan.com. It is a 2mp, 3x optical camera. It is sub compact but should serve you well.

Thanks, I will check it out. One of the models at which I was looking was the Olympus D550, but I just feel that is more then I need. I will definately check out the D520. The only thing right now is Olympus has an offer on the D550 for a free 64 MB smart media card with purchase.

As I would still need additional storage, if the price difference was less then $50, would you recommend going with the D550?
