I doubt you will find a 14-16 meg pocket camera for less than $100. Anywhere.

You need a sharp lens to take really crisp (in focus) pictures. Top pocket cameras will run $300-450. Here is a top model and one for $100.

Canon S100 IS - great lens & pics. 12 meg Abt $400

Canon A800 - good value for $80-90 10 meg

I have had Nikon bodies and lens for years. Service was good when I needed it. Maybe the pocket camera service is a different animal.

Go with Canon for pocket cameras.
