OT: Where to get a CHEAP digital camera?
I've been searching forever on ebay for one, but I never seem to be the highest bidder at the end. Anyone know other places to look? I'm not that choosy, as this is my first, and I can't really spend over $75.00. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I saw the cheapest digital camera ever the other day at the Mall of America at a store called Brookstone, I think - one of those weird, gadgety type stores. Anyway, it was a teeny tiny camera for $19.99!! Who knows what quality pic you'd get off it, but that would be my camera budget for now. :rollseyes:

I bought one of those 19.99 cameras on a whim. They are awful. Just trying to take the picture and have it somewhat centered in the photo, or actually in the photo at all is hard. The pictures are very blurry. It was so bad I threw it out.

Yikes! Good thing I didn't buy it though. I guess I shouldn't have had very high expectations with a price point like that though!!

Well... I think you may be able to get something that cheap at Target or Walmart.

I do feel the need to say that everyone I know who has bought a cheap digital has been sorely disappointed. My suggestion is if that is all you can spend then put that aside and add to it so you can get a little better one next month..or whenever.
