Looks like a very good deal for $65. Almost too good.

This was our first digital camera, we bought it in 2003 for about $300. I think we got lucky, because I don't hear very good reviews on any other Kodak model, but this one takes great pictures! It is discontinued, but you can still find places online that sell it pretty cheap.

The Nikon L11 at $90 (from B&H, Ritz, etc.) is also pretty good. We got one for my brother-in-law, and the few shots I've seen look pretty good.

Agree with the L11. I have an L6, which is the predecessor with almost identical specs. Not a lot of manual control, but will take nice pictures and does very nicely on the battery life.

Gotta say, though, that Lumix with the 6x optical and IS for only $65 sounds like a heck of a deal if it is really so.

Thats what I was thinking about the Lumix. 6x optical and IS would be great for $65!

Beauty price for the Panny! I'd prolly go for it myself, though I must say I have been quite impressed with the Nikon L10. Check out reviews on dpreview. Good luck.
