WTB Replacement Digital Camera - New & Cheap

Last night, I dropped my Kodak CX7300 digital camera. Today, it won't power on. (No light.) Kodak online.com gives me $75 as a start for the repair cost. They can't guarantee that my camera can be fixed and there would be repair turnaround time. Groan.

So, I need a new, cheap digital camera that I can use to photograph my dolls and action figures. Can anyone recommend a digital camera that would cost less than $100? I use the zoom feature 3x and want something I can pick up from a brick-and-mortar store.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I'm thinking about this. Meanwhile, have you been to this Philadelphia doll and toy store? It is more aimed at collectible dolls and toys, but I thought it might interest you. http://www.happily.com/

Thanks. I'm checking online reviews at CNET and others, but I thought other collectors would have more insight in the scale we photograph, etc.

I haven't been to Happily Ever After for some time now, but I bought my G-Five, Get Set Isabella there. Possibly my Get Set Vanessa or my Get Set Eva there, too. (I think that I got two dolls from them. Have some gaps in my current DAF database.) They have more 1:6 scale dolls than they used to - they carry Susie and Momoko and Re-ment miniatures as well as some 1:6 scale musical instruments. I have to check out the drum set they have to see if it would fit my figures. Thanks for the tip though.
