I LOVE my new camera!! I am a "digi cam n00bie" so I didn't want to spend much at first. I recently bought a Kodak EasyShare CX7300 from WalMart for $89.00. It is 3.2 MegaPixels. Has 3x zoom, auto and night settings, the little "window" to view your pics on before and after you take them, tripod capabilites, and a self-timer. This little camera takes BEAUTIFUL pictures. I DID buy a 128MB memory card for it for about $30 as well. The card holds around 160 pics at a time.
For an example, I took this
picture and this
one both from a moving car tonight, b/c the sky was so gorgeous. I LOVE the way this camera captured the sky, "darkened" out the trees and stuff, and shows such great detail on the way the sunbeams were coming down out of the clouds.
