    Hello Jaecat.
    I have recently bought cameras for 3 friends who are just starting up.I got them the PANASONIC TZ4.I am really impressed with the performance of this camera which has a Leica lens with 10x focal zoom.I got it for 132, slightly over your intended budget but well worth the extra.
    If you want I can post a photo I took when testing the camera.I intend using this very cropped shot in my next club competition.

    This picture will not give a true reflection on what the camera is really like as this is clearly photoshoped.

    To see what the Panasonic is like or any other compact camera, try here where you can search by feature and price.

    BTW, another vote for the panasonic, cracking little camera.
