What camera would you recommend at an affordable price?

I have an Olympus camera (digital one). I have always been told that Olympus is one of the better makes, so I opted for that.

It cost 200 and I am very happy with the results. I can even use it as a cam-corder and do little films of my family and friends. They come out great!! Okay, it is not going to be as good as spending 1000+ on a camera. I know you only get as good as you pay for, but it's affordable and does the job.

What camera would you recommend or have?

I hate (Red-eye) on photo's. So many friendsof mine use cheaper cameras or just don't get it set right and suddenly, all their pictures they take of people have red-eyes. Looks like they've all been possessed haha :D

Canon IXUS 860IS
I got it for the wide angle shots;) (28mm equivalent on ordinary cameras).

Some questions:

What's your skill level?
What area of photography are you interested in?
How much control do you want over your camera?
What's your budget?

This is what I would ask anyone going to buy a camera. There is no point wasting money on a P&S if they want to do some creative work.

The only real way to avoid red-eye is to get your flash/lighting off the camera and away from the lens axis.

As to what cameras I use? I don't care as long as it gives me the shot I see and visualise. They are only tools.
