GE may not be the first name you think of when considering a quality digital camera, but they do offer some solid models that may fit your budget. One of their most recent, the GE Power Pro X500 offers users a respectable all round shooter and ease of use.
The X500 offers a 16 megapixel sensor for plenty of detail in your shots and 15x optical zoom/6x digital zoom, which is far more than the average budget compact camera. It's a bit bulkier than many compact models but it's also much easier to grip and lends itself to a steadier hold reducing blurry images. Of course the optical image stabilization also assures less blur and the face, smile, and blink detection can also help in getting the best focus and exposure on your subjects.
It has a 2.7" LCD, a high ISO setting (3200) to improve detail when shooting in low light, as well as video recording capabilities; 640x480 resolution at 30 frames per second. It hosts only 14MB of onboard memory but has an SD card slot which allows users to expand memory up to 16GB. It's priced online at $129.99.
