Any Suggestions?

I think our digital camera has officially bit the dust. I took it to a service place yesterday and they said it would cost about $100 to fix it. They recommended just getting a new one.

So, we might be in the market for a new camera. Do you have a digital camera that you'd recommend?

LOVE my camera that I got recently from Buy.com. Target sells the same one for $250 - I got mine at Buy.com for $185, free shipping. It's a Kodak z712, has a 12x zoom, LOTS of settings you can use if you want, and a smart scene choice in case you don't want to mess with the various settings (so it chooses the best setting for you automatically).

You have to watch the price on Buy.com - it fluctuates often. This is the camera I have: http://www.buy.com/prod/kodak-easyshare-z712-7-megapixel-digital-camera/q/loc/101/204505967.html

There is also a Kodak z812

Had a Kodak Easy Share and liked the pictures, but it ate batteries--VERY frustrating. When I got my new camera I opted for something tiny and with a good battery life. I found the Sony Cyber-shot, 8.1 Mega Pixels with Carl Zeiss lens. I can stick it in my pocket and I always carry it in my purse. So handy. It takes great shots and has a substantial digital viewing window and a look-through window as well. The options wheel is also a cool feature--shows up on the screen--makes it very easy.

I know that my parents love their little tiny Cannon too. The compact digital Nikon, however, was not steady--fuzzy pictures if not on a tripod--big disappointment and took it back.

When I was hunting for the right camera I read lots of online reviews. I found them really helpful.
Good luck.
