Inexpensive Digital Cameras
Great Cheap Cameras & Great Features Too!
As time goes by, inexpensive digital cameras are becoming more and more available!
The quality of the pictures taken is improving, and the cameras are getting smaller. There are so many models that you really need a lot of time to decide which one is the best for you. Canon, Casio, Samsung, Nikon, Polaroid, Pentax, Kodak and others are offering cheap digital cameras. Many are appropriate whether you are a new camera user or a photo expert.
Here's an inexpensive digital cameras recommendation from personal experience.
If you are considering an inexpensive camera for yourself or even an upcoming holiday gift ( $159), you might take a look at the Canon A3100 IS. I bought this camera on impulse prior to my trip to Italy. I wanted something small. Perhaps it isn't the most sophisticated camera, but I found some hidden settings that made the photos taken much more interesting.
Set the camera to Program, rather than Automatic. Don't freak out...Program just allows you to make some tweaks. Then leave it on Program. Once you've chosen Program, press the Function button and then the Display button. Here you will find that you can increase Saturation, Contrast and Sharpness.To see photos I took with this camera (I did do some computer photo editing), visit my page Pictures of Tuscany.
For a step above, and if your busget is higher ($399), consider the Canon S95.
Because some of today's digital cameras are really inexpensive, that does not mean that you do not get any quality for your investment. One camera that can prove this is the Kodak EasyShare C913. This camera can be found at a price starting at $80 - $90. It's an inexpensive camera that provides a 9.2 megapixels resolution, a 3x optical zoom, and digital image stabilization. It has the multiple scene and color modes, it can capture HD pictures. It's a great camera at an exceptional price and has so many current features.
But the beauty of shopping is not in choosing the first one found, but looking for the right one...the perfect digital camera for you. Maybe you would like an even more inexpensive digital camera. Samsung S860 prices start at only $60! It has a more attractive design than the Kodak EasyShare C913, and it's resolution, which is 8.1 megapixels, is just a touch under the Kodak C913. As I've mentioned on my page what are megapixels, at these high numbers, differences only come into play if you are cropping pictures a lot.
If you have done some photography, then you know that sometimes spending just a few extra dollars can make a difference. A slightly better camera can offer some more options that might be important to you, and higher megapixels might be just one of them. The Casio Exilim EX-S10, at about $199, is a great digital camera that has a resolution of 10.1 MP, a 3X optical zoom and a 4X digital zoom.
You just cannot talk about inexpensive digital cameras without thinking about Canon. Take your pick! Canon offers many inexpensive cameras, one of the best for amateur photographers is the Canon PowerShot A470
(about $85) with a 7.1 megapixels resolution.
You might also like the Polaroid i1035
. The name comes from the past, but the technology is from the future with 10 megapixels of resolution and anti-shake image stabilization. This helps to reduce blur in your photos from camera shake/hand shake. This camera has a 3" LCD screen, which is VERY nice! It also offers 3X optical zoom and 21 different scene modes.
No matter how expensive or inexpensive the digital camera is you still have to smile for great photos.
