Fujifilm FinePix S3200
Fujifilm's budget superzooms are always popular with consumers because they carry huge zoom ranges at low prices. The S3200 continues that tradition with a 24x zoom (starting at a wide 24mm, no less) and an asking price of $249. It is, of course, a bit too good to be true, as the S series is also known for iffy image quality and an uninspiring user experience. Still, the fact stands that you're unlikely to find such an enormous zoom for under $250 anywhere else.
