    I have a Canon Powershot SD700... over the weekend the lense froze. It's stuck in a middle position where it won't zoom in or out (can't close when it powers down either).

    I called around a few local repair shops and the ballpark estimate they gave me to repair it was $100-$150.

    I like the camera but I can probably buy it brand new for $150-175 so I'm thinking I'd rather just get something new.



    All I need is something to do some point and shoot while I party / hang out with my friends, take some photos on vacation, etc.

    I'm still incredibly new to the world of photography so I don't need anything but it's been a while since I researched cameras.


    Any P&S cameras recommended for <$250?


    Edit: I'd also like to have something with 5.0x or greater optical zoom.

    Canon SD870 IS.
    It has wide angle for the win, which you'll love for indoor shots of your friends, as well as wide outdoor landscape shots for when you're on vacation.
