We ended up buying a Sony DSC-P72 for$168.00, a soft camera case for $17.00, a rapidcharger w/four additional batteries for $25.00, and 128 MB memory cardfor $45.00, so the entire outlay was less than $300.00. which we werereally pleased about.
I've taken pictures, got them into the computer, but that's as far asI've gotten with it. Got to learn how to get them out of thecomputer and online. The camera does do an awful lot beyondthe auto functions. It'll be a while before we outgrow it, ifever.
