I have an old 2mp Kodak camera which I'd really like to upgrade, but I don't want to spend more than $150. I want an all-purpose camera but I'm especially interested in one that will take good pictures inside. I'd like the pictures to be as sharp as possible. I've looked at the cameras at Circuit City and read about them on the internet, including this website, and it appears that there are several cameras that would meet my needs:
Kodak Easyshare C703, Nikon Coolpix L11, Pentax Optio M20, Fuji F470 and HP M537.

Given my modest needs, would I be happy with any one of these cameras? Is there one that really stands out that I should get? Is there one that I should avoid?

Thanks for your help.

If your main concern is indoor shooting performance, take a look at the Fuji F20. It's low light performance will be better than any of the cameras you've listed, and it has a very powerful flash. You should be able to pick one up for right around $150, if you shop around.

One of the students in my digital cameras class purchased an Olympus FE-180 camera from Olympus Auctions on E-Bay. She paid $(US) 80.00 for the camera delivered to her home. We did some test photos with the Olympus FE-180 in our class this past week. I will post the reults with this post.

The FE-180 is on Steves Best Beginner Cameras List. It normally sells for for $(US) 125.00 to 140.00 on the internet.
