    Hi there - I have (wisely) decided to not buy the 90 US$ Aldi camera
    and spend a little more.

    Here's the deal:

    -budget: 200-250 US$
    -purpose: everday use, family gatherings, day trips, but also travel
    photography for personal use (not professional)

    What camera would you recommend?

    Thank you!

  3. Before you make any decision please look at the Fuji 3800.
    It is a great little camera

  4. Canon A70.

    Sorry, it's about $265.

    The sweet spot for digital cameras is around $325 these days. You can
    get the 5Mp Konica/Minolta Revio 510/Dimage G500, for about $310, a
    very fine camera. Plus it includes Li-Ion battery and charger, while
    most of the low priced cameras don't come with rechargeable batteries
    or a charger.

    There isn't much that's worthwhile in the 3 megapixel cameras below
    the Canon A70. The A70 is a good deal because Canon uses the same body
    and lens with three different sensors, 2Mp, 3Mp, and 4Mp. So even the
    lower cost models benefit from the good optics and body. Also unique
    is its ability to use add-on filters and lenses, usually lower priced
    cameras lack this capability.
