I have the Fuji Finepix S1000fd. It was $199 at Wal-Mart. Mom found it cheaper on the net.
It's perfect for advanced amateur photographers who want an affordable, step-up digital camera. The Fujinon 12x optical zoom lens offers great range and flexibility. Face detection technology with automatic red-eye removal improves your people shots. Picture stabilization technology uses higher ISO settings up to 1600 for faster shutter speeds that help reduce the effects of camera shake.
