First off,do you need to print pictures?In this day and age just about everyone has a computer and its rare that we even think of printing pics.I just upload to a hosting site.All the friends and family can view and or save the pic onto thier computer or to disc for future viewing.
We baught our daughter a cheap Fuji camera for christmas last year for $80.It takes a great pic and is a great camera for the $$
I replaced our original Fuji camera with a Sony DSC-H2 and couldnt be happier with it.It has 12x zoom,is a little balky but takes super long rang pics.@ $350 its a little more than you where looking to spend but is very easy to use and will be usefull for many years!!
