When you're looking for a safe choice in a digital camera for only a little money, it's always a good idea to check out the low-end of the Canon ELPH line.
Though the Canon SD1300 is the first of the ELPH digital cameras to dip below the $200 mark, it still has what you need to get good quality shots from a pocket camera. The Canon SD1300 has a small, smooth, metal body, a 12-megapixel sensor, a 4x zoom that starts at 28mm, optical image stabilization, and a sharp 2.7-inch LCD. Even with a reduced feature set, I don't think the Canon SD1300 is missing anything the average camera buyer would notice. Canon's done an extraordinary job pruning the SD1300 down to the essentials, while leaving the good image quality intact.
