Hi everyone,

My digital camera (first I've had) is beginning to go bad.  Of course, I don't have the money to buy what I'd like.  What is a good inexpensive ($200 or less) camera?  I would like one that has the stabilization and no delay with a good zoom.

Thanks bunches for your help.
Liz

Liz - lots of great cameras out there ... I've found that the best place to research cameras and see what the users of them think are at dpreview.com  - their reviews are very thorough and the forums are pretty active.   You might be able to get a great used one once you've decided on your first or second choice camera -  think ebay, craiglist (that's where I picked up my last camera - a used one which looked brand new and included extra lenses (more zoom and wide angle).

Just my thoughts ...

I've always done lots of research before purchasing any new camera and I've been really happy with each one I've purchased.  Jan and Lisa have the Canon S5 IS - I bought a used one off of craislist last year (with extras) for $300.  You might be able to find a used one .. it's a  very nice camera with a big zoom.
