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.

i have a sony cybershot dsc p-10..i like it...its easy to use and comes wid wonderful specs (3x zoom, 5mp et al)...u can also try the dsc p-100 (a pc mag rated it the best buy here)...and u can always buy a memory card with more disk space (upto 1gb is wat they offer, i suppose)
