Need Camera Suggestions $250 price range

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm not that big into photography, but I'm going to Japan for 5 months, and I want to be able to take great photos to save those memories. My old sony camera just doesnt take that great of photos. So I'm looking for suggestions from you all. My budget is as cheap as possible, but around $250 (feel free to go a little over if you have a good suggestion).

Originally I wanted just a point and shoot so I could fit it in my pocket, but now I'm not sure anymore. I could go for something a little bigger. I'll probably want a wide angle lens to get all those pictures of scenery. I hope you can help. Thanks.

Canon S95. The absolute best you will find at that price point, unless you're willing to consider a used, entry-level DSLR.

What about the Nikon 8200 or 9100? They are on sale on Amazon.
