suggestions for a small, affordable camera ...

I'm hoping to buy a cheap, small and reliable little camera for our oldest offspring to take on a walking trip abroad. It's very much a one-of trip that they're unlikely to repeat, so a camera is a must-have - but not mine!

It needs to be small enough to tuck into a pocket, easy to get batteries anywhere in the world, able to tolerate heat and humidity and, I think, probably also cheap enough to lose and not worry too much. So if possible less than Ł100.

I've had a look online and in a couple of shops, but I'm bemused by the choices and I'm wondering if I'm hoping for too much.

Has anybody got any ideas please? Olympus would be nice, because I like the brand, but I suppose it isn't essential and I hope Ian won't mind me asking outside the general remit of the forum.
