    Default suggestions for a digital camera

    hi guys and gals,

    pls give me some suggestions on a digital camera for a fren.
    some of her requirements are:

    1) cost around $500;
    2) can double up as a webcam (must be fairly good);

    it's a present for her sis, who's gonna be going overseas for studies.

    i suppose at this price, can expect a 2-3mp camera, ard 3x optical zoom, etc...etc...and since it's for a girl, the camera body shdn't be too big or bulky...

    i'm thinking of fujifilm 3800, 6x zoom, 3mp and webcam functions...but it looks kinda big...

    so is there any other models to look out for?

    thanks a lot guys and gals...

    How about Canon V2 or V3 series.
    Handy for a girl.

    you could also consider the Fujifilm F401Z.

    F401 is quite a good choice. im using that now. a little pricey for a 2Mpix thoh. can become webcam too. nice durable body to carry around.

    F402 is even more compact and cheaper by around 150. but no optical zoom and no sound for movie clips.
