My digital camera has croaked. A shame, the only thing wrong with it is
the button. No parts are available as the camera is discontinued. My
local camera shop was told by Olympus it would cost ~$150 to fix. :O

Looking at prices, I can find newer cameras in the price range.

So I am now in the market for a camera. I am looking for a point and shoot camera. Preferably with the following criteria:

-I have many xD cards, so Olympus or Fujitsu is preferred

-Runs on AA batteries 

-The last one is a toughy: I prefer an optical viewfinder as it is how I take pictures AND it saves battery life

Any suggestions? Price range no more than $200-$250

Many thanks fellow hikers!

The true harvest of my life is intangible.... a little stardust 
caught, a portion of the rainbow I have clutched
