Here's a sleeper unit.

It's all of 69.99, has a View Finder and what I'm using for an industrial application because of the view finder and it's ease of use. Not to mention the price. There are a surprising number of nice touches at this price such as image stabilization and more.

Did I mention it has a view finder?

Yes it's not my only camera but for the price I think it's a sleeper and a bargain. Here's a snap.

There are a lot of choices out there.
