    My current camera is an old hand-me down Sony 4.1 Megapixel Cyber-Shot, and while it gets the job done I'd very much like to upgrade to a better one...I don't need anything too fancy, just something that does a good enough job...preferably in the 100-250 dollar price range. What do you guys suggest?

    PS: Here's a pic of the camera I'm using now.

    Camera I have is okay. It's a Canon PowerShotSX100IS.
    Some of the pics I have taken with it:

    Don't get me wrong, some days, it sucks. But it gets the job done.

    You simply can not go wrong with Nikon or Canon. My preference has been Nikon. A friend has a Canon, and for the money, I have more features on my Nikon than on his Canon, and they're comparable models. You'll only over-pay with a Sony. Save some money and get a camera that is just as good or better for less $$$.

    Nikon CoolPix or Canon Sureshot or Digital Elph models are pretty good. Both brands take SD, and some take HDSD cards as well.

    Memorex are okay. I bought one, and I was not impressed with it. They're not bad, though. I believe they still take SD cards.

    Olympus also makes good digital camera's. They take XD cards though. Which isn't bad, but it is something you might want to know about since you need memory cards for any digital camera.

    One other thing...more megapixels doesn't mean better photos. In fact there's an arguement that anything over 6 MP in a point and shoot is a waste, and some cameras might use software to actually make them that big, when it's not necessary.
