Default I need a new camera

Ok, I had a Pentax Optio 33L for 6 years. It has been a great camera, even though I know that it is low on the totem pole with only 3.2 megapixels and 3X zoom. I do not know much about cameras and am just looking for a replacement that is a good camera. My mom bought me the other one from a camera store like I said 6 years ago. I don't want to spend over $200 (give or take a little) as money is tight but would like to get a somewhat decent camera with a good name. Could you please help?

Thank you,
Sarah

I'd look around this site...as there are a number of reviews, comments on various cameras...

I am 'looking' as well, so join the group

...I AM finding tho..that budget is going out the window...LOL..I am learning so much and wanting to get better etc.

One thing I can tell you, is that the 'experts' here are going to need a whole bunch of info before even attempting to answer..ie: type of shots you want?? Thus I suggest first cruise this forum and read a few posts that have asked the very same question...and that will help frame your needs and narrow your search and then the help you'll get will be extremely useful and tailored to you...

I pretty much used my other camera for everything, kids birthday parties, vacations, but mostly of my 7 and 4 year old. Like I said before, I really know nothing about cameras. I just know that I was very happy with the Pentax I had and would like a good brand one that is equivalent or better than the Pentax 33L I had before. I hope this helps. Thanks.

I've merged the two threads you started in order to keep all of the replies in the same thread.

As for Pentax, one of their more interesting compacts is the P70 -
