    man there are alot of good options out there. you did not give us much to work with. What kind of budget are you looking at having i guess would be my #1 question. then we go from there. How tech savvy are you? what will you be using the pics for? etc....

    They sell small "one time use" cameras for a few dollars at any corner store, preset with focus at infinity, built in flash, high quality prints available for an additional fee

    That's an excellent point. I've never used or tried one. Anybody ever tried one? I'm curious as to, "how good of a picture", you can get.

    That would be something interesting to find out. It doesn't seem to be economically viable where I'm from. I think the first of such cameras were introduced at least 4 years ago, but there are still no shops selling or supporting services available locally, unless I spend a tiny 'bomb' to try it...

    can you suggest certain preferred producers?

    Well pal, assuming you come from US, I find you've got a hefty sum for a point and shoot digital camera!

    You might want to consider Canon digital cameras (no disposables). The cheaper Canon PowerShot A460, 5.0 mega-pixels (costs about USD130 as suggested retail price, which means you'll almost certainly get it cheaper in the stores near you). Add an extra battery and one/two 2G (4G cards are still a little dear) memory card/s, and you might even have enough to print your pictures.

    That's a quick suggestion. Let the good people know if there's anything you might want to ask.

    wait....are you in the US? and you have 500? that is a good chunk of change for a simple point and shoot. you can get a good canon or sony for like 200.
