Digi Cams

I'm a student. I'm therefore inherently poor, or pissed.

Both.

Either way, I'd very much like the services of a digital camera. It'll be almost entirely for web work, but I wouldn't mind making prints of 'at least reasonable quality' with it.

So, what cheap but 'decent' digi cams do you have/know people have/have tried/recommend?

Yours faithfully,
Pablissimo

Sub-100 ideally.

I'm prepared to go the refurbished/second hand route but I can't do that yet because I don't know any 'good' ones I could nab on EBay...

you can get 'useable' for sub 100 just about.

iwoot.com do a few , but the one i'd go for would be
this.

Sure, it isnt the best camera in the world, but seems to me a decent spec for the price.

The zoom is digital rather than optical, and its only really 3 megapixel, but it also has a flash, and an lcd screen.
3megapixel is more than enough for decent shots
(i have one thats 0.75 or so. the pics are useable, but not great. something 4 times greater should be verging on decent picture)

IWOOT.com isnt the cheapest place in the world, so if you were shopping around you could probably get it cheaper

Pabbeh, I've got a Sony Cybershot DSC-9 or smth, 4 Megapixels, ****ing great camera - the problem with cheap cameras is that they invariabley have only digital zoom (sounds good, really its crap) ie fixed lens.

You should up your budget to 250 or so, you should be able tog et a good camera for that.

I don't require zoom at all really, so it's a moot point, and although I'd love a cybershot (flatmate bought one a while back) they're both far, far too expensive for my budget and don't feel the most solid of items (I was always looking out for it hoping I didn't break it when I nicked it off him heh).

Thanks for the suggestions though, at least there are some cams out there, I'll report back if and when I get one
