    Can anyone recommend an ultra-cheap but reasonably good digital cameras for
    *very* basic photography? I have a wonderful friend who is going through a
    divorce. She is devastated -- one of those cases where she learned that he
    has been carrying on an affair for 14 years! She had wanted a digital
    camera for a long time, and her husband took it. She has also been left
    with *very limited* financial resources. If I could find an inexpensive,
    easy-to-use, yet reasonably good digital camera, I would get one for her as
    a gift. This could be a camera without manual controls because I doubt that
    she would make any use of that, but it would be nice if there were some sort
    of (limited) telephoto capability.

    Fuji A205.

    About $70 on ebay, but add the cost of a memory card & NiMH batteries.

    Outstanding quality on the cheap.
