You might want to ask on the photograhy board also.

Borrowed the below answer from this thread.

I love Amazon, love being able to read reviews of owners of any item.

It has a 7x optical zoom and takes pictures that rival the Canon's, but best of all I can just slip it in my purse or pocket and take it everywhere with me! Oh, and if you do a little searching around, you can find batteries for it cheap, cheap. I got batteries for 21 cents and they work perfectly.

I've never been this thrilled with a camera in my life, especially for that price. I haven't used my Canon since I got this camera.

I have a Sony Cybershot that I bought at Wmart for $99. It takes great pictures and it small enough to keep in my pocketbook.

We took it to Disney for the first time in April and it took great pictures.

I love the Casio Exilim- I am on my fourth. (one was stolen, 2 were probably lost) I got my latest one on Staples.com for about $60 (had a $30 coupon and an internet code). But the best thing is- they are always coming out with new models, so just buy the oldest (and least expensive) model- you are still getting a great camera. Google it!!

you might want to get the same brand so that you do not have to buy new memory cards.

Moving this to the Photography Board. The members who post there should be able to direct the OP to an affordable replacement that will perform the functions she needs.
