Hi i need to get a camera to shoot a few friends of mine that have decided to start a website. The thing is my budget is low just around 300 dollars. It has to be digital because of time and cost, I cant afford to get lens so it has to have a decent one built on.

I'll be using this camera for at least 6 months till i can get a nice Digital SLR, but for now i just need to capture some ok images of the ladies to get the site rolling.

It would help to know what kind of website. If its going to be glamour, then you not only will need a camera but will need to know how to light the glamour shots and will have to have lighting. So with a budget of $300 you are going to be limited. There are lots of good point and shoot digitals in the $300 range. Go to a large electronic store like a Fry's and you'll be able to test out dozens of cameras.
Cheers,
rfs

You'll need to take a look at different models at a big Fry's like store. Because of your $300 limit you may have to make compromises. I think you need to go at least 5 or 6 megapixel for better results. But if using external strobes, you'll need some method of triggering them and often the under $300 cameras may not have a hot shoe or pc connector so you'll have to fire the built in flash and block it off from the subject in some way and use it to trigger a slave plugged into the strobes. Because there are so many variables its hard to name a specific camera. If you could find one of the Canon G3-6 series used, they all had the ability to sync with external strobes because they had a hot shoe. I used a G2 for a year or so for glamour work (here are 2 G2 examples).
