I have 2 Fujifilm cameras , and I have found them to be totally reliable over many years. In fact my oldest one was my first ever digital camera, still works great too. So for me this brand is ok. Looking at the modern cameras, if I was buying one at your budget range, I would go for the Fujifilm S2800HD. Google it and look at the spec for yourself and see if it has what you need. All the best.
