Why don't you help her get a new camera? She's broke. Malingering, why don't you give the address of your / set up a Paypal account?

Send her a dollar. You know you've gotten a dollar's worth of laughter (at least) from the speedo guy.

...just sayin.

I'm always broke--but I could always skip my vending machine snacks for a day.

However, $335 will not buy much of a camera. Particularly if you want a spare battery and a bigger storage card.

you can get a spare battery with a grey market charger for $12.00 including shipping on ebay.
you can get a HUGE 1GB card on Amazon for 39 bucks.

A Canon powershot S50, S60 is a hell of a camera for around 200 bucks, almost functioning like a little slr.

....and it's not like she's taking photos like this:

or

...she's taking photos like this:

and this...

so, i'd say not to get discouraged by the $335 limit...although i suspect she'd get more.

I bought a Canon S2 IS -- which MIGHT be large for the stealth photographer that she is :) But it was (a few months ago) on buy.com for only $350.

Vidalia, where are you finding an S50? I wanted another and didn't find it at the time.

You got through med school yet you can't track the directions on PayPal? :-D

You shouldn't feel guilty. Check out these sites.

Both write well-liked, popular blogs and earn a living doing that. While that might be extreme in your case, there is no harm in letting your audience pay for your camera. After all, you are generating content which is of value to them.
