Use any SD card camera with A2 USB host !!
Someone should sticky this (and maybe copy the pics locally), as this can remove most of the worries about camera and A2 compatibility.
If you have a camera that takes SD cards (as most do) invest in a new card instead of gambling on a card reader. the new SanDisk USB SD cards can be inserted directly into a USB slot and also work with the A2!!!
The card works just like any SD card, but can be bent in half to reveal a USB connector
... and it works directly in the A2
They aren't much more than the normal SD cards. I got a 1Gb card and it's also high speed (Ultra II)... also now I don't have to carry around my stupid proprietary camera cable to get my pictures onto my PC.

Another great buy for your A2 is a USB mini male to USB male conector
which allows you to connect your A2 to your PC without the cable (I have a USB extension cord on my PC's and I just carry the connector to use my A2)
I picked up a set of 6 common (all different) connectors and an extension cord from ebay, for about $10
..oh and if you were wondering what the mess on my A2 screen is - It's number 13
