Cheap shots: Compact cameras under $150

All the major digital camera manufacturers are launching their spring lines in the next couple months. Now's the time to start looking for good deals on last year's point-and-shoots.

With PMA 2009 nearing, camera manufacturers are rolling out their spring compact point-and-shoot lineups, making it a good time to hunt down deals on last year's models.

Here's a collection of cameras that are already fairly inexpensive for what they offer. Keep in mind, being as low priced as they are, that you should not expect perfect photo quality or blazing-fast performance.

What you will get is a decent pocket camera for very little investment with generally simple operation and the occasional extra feature like a 5X optical zoom or advanced face detection.
