    Features I really like include Optical Zoom (digital isn't that good) and size. Casio and Canon are my two favorite brands, with Casio winning out on pocketability. The Exilim is a nice camera that's easy to carry around, but it's a bit higher than what you've budgeted. Take a look at the Canon A540:

    You can find it on the web and in stores for around 165. This model has optical zoom, 6 MP and it's your basic point and shoot. Plus it uses SD cards which are very inexpensive now.

    damn it - my long reply gone cause i had to back up a page...

    grrr.

    brands to reference and explore:
    nikon, panasonic, canon, fuji, olympus and minolta.

    brands i'd run from:
    vivitar, dvx, mitsubi, and others you've likely never heard of before.

    brands that are ok, just not my "top shelf" brands:
    kodak, sharp, and to a degree, fuji (although i listed it up there)

    get at least 5 or 6mpx and get a good range on our telephoto.

    for just general use, kodak can be a good buy for the $ feature wise.

    if it were me, canon, pentax or panasonic. if none of those were making me happy, olympus, nikon and minolta.
