compact/ultra compact
wondering what to get. 100-200 bucks i suppose.
shes not too handy with the camera, so make it easy to use
different colors would be nice too (pink, blue, etc)
but colors arent needed.

Greetz, fellow New Jerseyan! :)

Sony's W series are pretty good little cameras, and I believe they are available in different colors as well.

The Samsung S630 is also available in mulitple colors, and is cheap, but has horrible focus ability in anything but really good light.

I was in the same boat as you about 2 months ago, and wound up buying my fiancee the Fuji F650, Best Buy had on sale for $99 plus a $30 mail in rebate. The camera's not very small but has a large 3" LCD, and takes good pics.

Check out the Star Ledger today, and see what's being offered as "4th of July" specials. You might get lucky.

Might want to check out the Canon A560. Pretty darn inexpensive @ ~$160and good camera. No IS though.
