Default Compact digital with good flash

I have a Canon IXUS 50 at the moment and its been a good camera. However the flash is rather poor. I use the camera for snaps and especially for pictures of items for sale, the items look poor though because of the camera's little flash. I don't need very high quality but I like an optical zoom.

What would you recommend in terms of a ~$200 small camera that has a better than average flash?

Foxster-

Welcome to the Forum. We're pleased that you dropped by.

I buy and sell a lot on E-Bay and I picked up a Kodak Z-915 just for my E-Bay photos and I have been pleased with it performance. Here in the USA is regularly sells for $(US) 129.00 or about 72 pounds sterling. It is often on sale at $(US) 99.00 or about 59 pounds sterling.

I have attached a typical E-Bay photo taken with the Kodak Z-915.

Thanks for the suggestion. I found a reconditioned one on eBay for about the equivalent of $90 and have ordered it.
