I found this digital camera that I believe will go on sale soon at a store near me for only $70 with a printer after rebates. I'm not too experienced with digital cameras and I don't have one, so I would like one (preferrably cheap ) that would work, but I don't really need a high end one. I notice that it doesn't say anything about optical zoom, so how much would that affect the quality of the pictures? It also seems to be too cheap to be real. It is 5.1 MP for only $130 normally, so what is the catch (besides no optical zoom)? Also, how much of an effect does no optical zoom have? I only have a film camera right now and would like to get a digital one, but I don't have to get the best. If I don't get this, I probably won't buy one for a few years.
Does anyone have any advice?
Edit: Added camera model to the title in case anybody searches for it.
