    Hi Nate, this camera FUJI FinePix A340 is nice for the money. I think its $150 @Newegg, you'll need an extra 64mb or better yet 128mb memory card. It comes with everything you need to get the pic's on your PC through USB.

    I would hold off on the printer, you could get a lot of pic's done at Wallgreens or Wal-Mart for the price of a good printer, ink & photo paper. If your family wants to get really involved with photography later on then get a printer.

    I like Nikon, Cannon, Fuji and Sony because they have real nice optics. Look for a camera that has high 3x or better optic zoom, don't pay attention to digital zoom.

    Hey Rohit, you ain't kidding there!

    I got myself a Sony Cybershot DSC P93A just a few weeks ago, i researched digital camera's in my price range (poor man style) and at least 3 different reviewers gave it the thumbs up and i haven't been disappointed!

    I want to have it's babies!
