We can still get Promaster cameras - my daughter just got her 2nd one after wearing one out in Italy. They could have fixed it, but it cost almost as much as a new one. They are used by some schools to teach photography as a lot of the works are manual. My daughter just loves hers! I believe the new one (with a lens included) costed about $125.00 or so.

Feel free to look at her work on her flickr account:
