Fuji (Fujifilm) Finepix A205


I'm looking for a pretty cheap digital camera within the two megapixel price range. In Target's ad, they have they Finepix A205 at only $119 plus I get a $20 card (which I'll use to cut down the price of a 128 MB xD card).

I was going to get a Canon A310 till I saw this deal - it seems to be better than anything else I've seen. The A205 is reportedly compatible with OS X and Windows (as I need my camera to be). Has anyone used this or other Fuji digital cameras? Can you tell me about them?

I don't usually shop at a place like Target for this kind of item, but I've checked it out online and, hey, if I'm just picking it up at Target, what's the big deal?

Any advice on other cameras under $200 (Canon makes none in this price range or I'd probably leap on it)? My brother has a A70, which he picked out with my help; I would go for something like it, except this camera isn't as important as that one. 2 Megapixels is enough for me (or at least it should be). Any help appreciated. Thank you, in advance.

Also, does anyone have opinions on the Kodak digital cameras? They seem to be crap quality, but if anyone can testify to the contrary...

I got my wife a Fuji A2600 for Christmas 2003. It's a nice, usable little camera. The standard photo resolution is a little low, but you can always bump that up, and the pictures look very nice. Nice, compact, easy to use camera.

I'm leaning more and more towards this camera. The main question now is "Is it worth the extra $50 to go from 2 to 3.2 megapixels?"
