Hello! I would appreciate any help. My soon-to-be 6-years-old daughter has requested a camera for her birthday. I've looked at the "toy" versions, but figure for the money I'm going to spend, I might as well get a real one that we can all use. She works the computer fairly well so I think she'll have fun.

Anyway, looking for a fairly basic camera, not looking for bells & whistles but okay if they are there. Don't want to spend more than $100, less would be better :-)

Thanks in advance for any help. Happy New Year!

I have seen the Canon A-470 down to $(US)82.00 during Christmas, that might be an option.

Thank you, Sarah! I took your advice and ordered the Canon A-470 camera from BuyDig this evening. It will be nicer than my camera! I appreciate your help--my daughter will be so excited. Thanks again!
