Default Compact camera with at least a 10X zoom closest to $100

I had a Panasonic DMC-ZS1. Loved it. My daughter had one too but it was stolen from school. So, I gave her mine. I want another camera similar to it bit don't want to pay big money for it. Is there any camera out there similar that I can get for close to $100?

Fujifilm T200...?

Or even the auto based Pentax Optio RZ18... which is coming in cheap these days...

SIMON40- thank you for the suggestions. These cameras came out a little higher priced than I had hoped to spend.

The Panasonic DMC-SZ1 (10x zoom) is retailing for aprox $120. It's not a bad camera for the price and I think it's the cheapest current camera that has 10x zoom or more.

Our Walmart has one of the 10X zoom Fuji compact cameras for $99.00, so you might check at one of those stores. I have always liked Fuji cameras, although I bought a Panasonic this time around.

Thanks, Guitarman. I will check our store here to see if they have the Fuji. I love the Panasonic- will have to look again. I was thinking it might be one of those that the battery charges in the camera- which is something I don't like.
