Im torn between 2 cameras. The Kodak C340 or the Casio EX S100. Both on sale for about $220 at Circuit city. It will be a B-day gift for my mom. $220 is about the max I could afford to spend on a camera. I narowed it down to these 2 because I wanted to get a camera with a rechargable battery and one that was very simple to use. Both have charging stations. The S100 is 3.2mp , the c340 is 5mp. Fairly good image quality is fine.

Any input on these 2 cameras will be helpful. I did a fair amount of research for cameras in this price range. Ease of use and rechargable batteries are mostly what im looking for.

Well....for a "mom" I would go with the Kodak. The menu's on the Kodak's are very easy to use and are newbie friendly.

She is mostly a disposable camera type. So i figured that I might as well get her a digi cam. soshe wont waste any more money on film,cameras, or batteries.

If the Kodak is more user friendly, I might get her that one.

Im goin to get the panasonic fx9 formyself

I think I made my choice. I just read up on the upcoming Canon A410. Looks like a good beginers camera, plus it has decent features. Price doesnt hurt either.
