    I have a Canon S-50 with which I am very pleased (it makes *me* look
    like a good photographer).

    My wife wants to get a digital camera for casual use (by her, our
    teenage daughters, etc) and has decreed an arbitrary limit of $100 on
    the purchase.

    Can anyone offer suggestions/opinions as to the best

    Thanx to all for your input. My wife just gleefully scored a Sony P72
    at Best Buy for $99, so I think our quest has ended. Looks like a
    pretty darn good deal when you note that the P72 listed for $330 just
    about a year ago, and a quick websearch shows the current best online
    price of ~$175.

    Well, she has always been a real bargain hunter (look at what she got
    for a husband ;-> )
