My neice is wanting a pink camera, and we'd like to pay in the low $100s. I was looking at the Samsung S630, which would work except with the bad battery life we'd need a seperate charger and rechargable batteries. Next up I was looking at the Sony DSC-W55 at $200.

Is there something between those two financially that takes good pictures, has good battery life and comes in pink?

The Kodak V803 is available in pink for $170-$200 and, as the Sony, is a much better camera than the Samsung.

Battery charger and rechargeable batteries should only run $20 or less.

The Samsung S630 is an absolutely abysmal camera. Noisy, muddy photos and poor low-light focusing doom that camera. It's a shame, too, because it actually handles pretty well and has a good 2.5" LCD w/153k pixels, which is very good for its price range.

The camera's color should be an afterthought - the camera is useless if it doesn't take decent photos.

Fuji Z5fd comes in "wine red" (actually looks pink to me) and might be the best ultra compact in that price range ($200).

And Panasonic FX10 comes in pink for about $175.

Tell that to a 14 year old girl

Is there somewhere online that has sample photos of the S630? I've been looking but can't find any.
