These top digital cameras for under $100 are not going to be feature-rich models.
And aren't going to
take photos that will generate poster-sized prints.
Inexpensive, budget digital cameras can, however, yield photos of good quality for using on the Internet and for making small
prints. Thanks to technological advancements, today's cheap digital cameras have more power than you might think.
Here are the some of the top digital cameras for less than $100, listed by
Canon PowerShot A470, $99.95 *

budget digital camera. The PowerShot A470 from Canon is one of the best sub-$100 cameras around. The unit's 7.1
megapixels of resolution are plenty for most beginners, and the A470 has a 3.4X optical
zoom lens and a 2.5-inch
LCD. It's an
interesting-looking digital camera, too, available in blue, red, orange, and gray
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S780, $97.95 *

zoom lens, high ISO 1250 sensitivity for low-light shooting and Stamina Battery
Power which provides extended battery life and shooting capacity when using
fresh AA-sized batteries. The bright 2.5" LCD screen makes it easy to frame your
shots and view your images. It has 22MB of internal memory so you can shoot
pictures and video clips with your camera right away, or you can purchase an
optional Memory Stick Duo media card to expand your shooting capability
Samsung S860, $79.95 *
You'll find the S860 point-and-shoot digital camera from Samsung in four different colors: Black, silver, pink, and light
blue. This budget camera has 8.1 megapixels of resolution and a 3X optical zoom lens. It measures only 1.04 inches in
thickness, and it's a sharp-looking digital camera.

C813 from Kodak offers plenty of resolution for most beginning
The unit has a 2.4-inch LCD, limited video capabilities, and a 3X optical zoom
