Need advice on digital camera $320 or less?
Could some one please give me some advice on buying compact or sub-compact camera? My uses are as follows:.

1. My daughter needs one for her high school imaging class..

2. I would also take it with my wife and I when we are on a motorcycle run, because it would be able to fit in pocket, where more protected..

3. General photography snapshots in all types of conditions( perfect to low light)4. Something that would easily learned and very good all round camera..

Thanks very much for any advice you pros can give me..

If you don't need manual control, the older Fuji F20 would probably fit the bill. Like it's acclaimed sibling, the F30, it has some of the best low-light capabilities of any compact digital..

If you do need some manual control, there's the F30/F31fd. Unfortunately it's going to difficult to get your hands on one of these...especially at that price point... as they're no longer in production (and there's a bit of demand for what's available)...

I have a Canon a570 ($168) and would recommend that or the Canon a720 ($225). The difference between the two is a longer zoom on the a720. Both would be great for a photography student. The cameras have manual controls which I think a student would need. The cameras also have image stabilization which helps in low light. The camera is not ultra compact but is pretty small - fits in a purse.

The down side of these cameras is the lcd can be hard to see in bright sunlight and the flash recycle time is a little slow but other than that the camera takes really great pictures..

If you don't need manual controls consider the sd870 - ultra compact, image stabilization. You should be able to find it for around your price range on the internet..

There are a lot of cameras out there within your budget but I recomment something with image stabilization...

DP just posted their review of the a570 - this camera just received their highest rating...

I looked at the newer Fuji F series, the best of the canon A series and ended up with a Samsung NV 15. It is the same size as the NV 10 but better photo quality...
