I would like to purchase an inexpensive point and shoot for my daughter to take on a trip. Unfortunately they are leaving on Saturday, so I probably can't mess around with Ebay.
I'd like a balance between cost and quality. In other words, I don't think an $89 P&S that will be junk in 6 months is worth the investment, and I also don't think a $450 G9 is the right camera for her. CF cards would be a bonus, but I don't expect that to be an option since most have gone to SD.
It is a fishing trip so most pics will be outside, in a boat (so a 2000x zoom isn't necessary).
