Any recommendations? Looking for inexpensive, smaller and super easy to use. My first one is too bulky and its just complicated.....boys gave me a gift card from Best Buy to go toward one!

I'm not sure what your idea of inexpensive is, but I just bought a Canon Powershot A710 IS and it's really cool! I got it for $255 at Amazon.
Give this site a try..you can compare, see cameras according to price, size, use, etc.

The other day I just bought a Fuji Finepix S700. Right now on Amazon.com it's only $219, and it takes amazing pictures. It's one of the bulkier cameras, but I like that it's bigger. I always break the little sissy ones. :teehee:
I have a Fuji S7000 that I love, but it's pretty bulky. I got a Canon A540 for Christmas and I love the portability of it. It's small, and it takes really good pictures.

I got the Cannon Powershot SD1000 (http://www.beachcamera.com/shop/product.aspx?sku=CNPSSD1000S) for $211 at Beach Camera. They have great prices and were very fast, I got my camera the next day after I ordered it. I love the camera, it comes with some pretty good software, and its really easy to use.

When I was thinking of buying a digital camera someone on this forum recommended Kodak. I love my Kodak EasyShare. :heart: The learning curve is minimal. I recently added the EasyShare photo dock. The photos look just like photo shop prints.

I second the Nikon Cooplix! I have the 5200 model. My dad got it at Costco for $150. It's very easy to use and only about 3.5" long and 2.5" tall.

I have a Konica Minolta Dimage X60. I love it. I had a different one from this same series which was stolen and I loved this little camera so much I got the next version. It's an excellent little camera and fits in my purse and the screen has held up with no scratches even when in my purse with my keys. It takes nice pictures as well. All the pictures on my blog were taken with it.

I love my Cannon point and shoot.
