Best P&S for ~$150?

Well, the title says it all, folks: What's the best P&S for general photography in the $150 US price range?

fuji f700 for sure

You can get it for less than 100 through amazon. Has killer multicoated lens (fuji makes hasselblad lens), and was the showcase and to this day the only compact with their high dynamic range SR sensor. Relatively low megapixels but takes very detailed pictures that enlarge well. If you plug the camera name into flicker,finepix f700 photos blow away any cheap high megapixel compact.

Even though it sold for 500 it is now less than 100 through amazon vendors. It is supposed to break easily so for 150 get two. I think they fixed whatever was causing it to fail in the factory reconditioned models. I use my f700 daily with no problems.

Damn Brit

I just ordered two refurbished ones for $70 a pop through Amazon for the wife and I.

For people who have this camera, what have you found to be the best xd cards for it please?
