Exclamation Camera Suggestions

I need a camera to take pictures for cosplay. It doesn't have to be anything fancy, but does anyone know a good camera to use that has good quality?

There's a thread for this : http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=82941

But be more precise when you ask there and try to cover these :
- what's your budget ?
- what are you going to shoot exactly ? ("cosplay" is vague : do you want to take casual shots of costumes you come across, do photoshoots, shoot masquerades... ?)
- how serious are you about photography ? (are you willing to learn technique in order to do something better, or do you prefer something easy to use ?)
- do you want/need video ?
- are weight and bulk an issue ?

Thanks so much for responding. Ummm, for budget $50-$120 is a good range for me.
As for shots for cosplay, I just want to take pictures of me and my friend in our cosplay costume, but I don't want the camera to be crummy and make it seem like we took it on our phones. But we cosplay from the same animes- ALWAYS. So I'm guessing photoshoots. I prefer something easy to use and weight is a little bit of an issue, but bulk isn't. Again, thanks so much for responding.

You just want a point and shoot camera. I'd go with a powershot personally. They have several different kinds a huge price range

Canon Powershot. You can get one at Best Buy, and for P&S cameras that's the way I'd go.

I also hit more conventions than most people do, so if you see me say hi. Chances are I'll be selling DVDs in the dealer room.
