After you good people recommended me a camera for myself, I'm asking your advice once more on behalf of my sister. She wants a cheap digital camera with basic functions (some zoom, flash). The important thing that it needs, and why I'm asking you instead of a feature-search webpage, is that this one really needs to have usb mass storage. The Cannon I bought has a proprietary protocol over USB, so in Linux it is unusable and I have to rely on my card reader. My sister has no card reader though, so the USB interface is crucial. Do you know of a cheap digital camera that has the standard USB mass storage interface?
