Digital Camera Help...Please

So I mentioned below that my digital camera (which is not even mine. I don't own one- never have. It's my Dad's very old digital and until a few months ago I used my "real film" camera and waited a week for Snapfish to post the pictures for me!) is dying a slow death. Since y'all seem to take great pictures of your preppy outfits, cute crafts and children, I would love your input. Do you have a camera- that is moderately priced- that you love? Or one that you regret purchasing? I went to Staples and Target yesterday to look at their cameras. At Staples it was as if I had the plague- no one wanted to talk to me. When I finally found someone to answer one question, he quickly walked away to chit chat with his co-workers. Then I went to target to find a very nice girl working the camera counter. She was a doll but had no clue about anything camera related. She at one point said, my friend has that pink one and it's really cute. Which, while exactly the way I would describe a camera, is of no real help to a girl trying to find her first (gasp- it is 2007 already and I am just now making this purchase!) digital camera. I wrote down the names of camera styles (ie: Olympus FE-230 or Canon SD-750) and looked up reviews online. I am not sure why I was surprised when I found both positive and negative reviews of everything. That only confused me more. So give me your opinion of your camera bloggers, please. I need some reviews from people I trust (that's y'all!).

Thank you, thank you... in advance!

I wish I could help! Mine was recommended to me by a friend who is almost a professional photographer. (Mistake #1) So Happy husband spent thousands on this thing (a Canon?) and I never use (don't know how to use) all its capabilities. I can't wait to read what advice the others tell you!

Personally, I like the Canon ones best. The picture quality is good and they are reasonably priced. Not sure which model is best since they are always coming out with new stuff. But the ones similar to the Canon SD-750 are pretty good.

I don't know specifics... but we have a Sony and we love it. I like the ones w/ rechargeable batteries rather than the ones that take AA's that you have to replace all the time.
