    you could try 2nd hand Canon A100 or maybe A200? should be within your budget.

    However do remember that there isn't much settings to play with the cam. I know... cause i'm using the A100...

    And also, you'd have to figure in the cost of the batts (rechargeable AAs or proprietiary batts) w/ their chargers & storage media (128/256mb CF/sD/xD? ).

    If you really want a cheap digicam, maybe you can consider those "Made In Taiwan" ones, like Digimaster or O'Rite. Think BenQ cameras are also quite cheap!

    Default digimaster news

    hmm....heard from some sales channels, that Digimaster is about to launch their very new high-end CCD models. according my contacts, their internal product and marketing dept have completed the inital few rounds of testings, and they are surprised at the high quality of these new models this time onwards. heard that they have also made the prices very attractive

    develop film very laychey.

    I'm also thinking about a cheapo cam for my girl to mess with. I think just auto modes will do, let them get used to the idea of framing rather than messing with aperture and shutter speeds.
