Anyone has ideas on a good digital camera?

by BocaBrat / February 10, 2007 5:14 AM PST

I need a new camera under $100. Anyone has an idea?
Keep in mind it needs to take the wear-n-tear of everyday life. The more megapixels the better. No old and used. I want a new camera from a brand/store that can be trusted. Links perferred. Thank you so much. Sincerely, THE one and only BocaBrat

For under $100 your not going to get much , personally I think you will just be throwing away your money. I would look on Ebay for a nice Canon S30 or S40 powershot. They can be had for the money your looking to spend.

I have a S30 which has been in use almost dailey for the last 7 years. You can check out the Canon site for the specs or get a review from Steves Digicams

My likes are fits in the pocket, pretty good battery life (I use aftermarket batteries) makes movies and its great in auto. Its a great camera for the newbie but has a lot of extras if you wish to get serious.

My 2 cents,

Hi, George Bitar here,
I recently bought a Kodak Easyshare for my mom and she loves it. Easy to use, easy to print pictures. We bought the printer that went with it and paid $200 total for both.
