Sorry. Newbies asking about PnS and not DSLR. Hope won't get flamed here.

Wanting to upgrade my old Sony DSC-S600 6MP digital camera (Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens and Sony HAD CCD) bought in 2006 for a basic PnS under $200 because newer cameras are slimmer and smaller and less bulky to carry around. Not a photographer who tweaks settings for best shots and usually just shoot auto.

Saw cheap Fujifilm FinePix AV100 ($99) / AX200 ($129) at Fairprice Xtra. Both 12MP cameras with AX200 having 5x optical zoom vs. 3x optical zoom for AV100.

Their specs as below.


Any comments or other better products around this price range for consideration? Are Fujifilm entry level cameras good? Or there must be a reason for being cheap?
