Thin camera

I am looking for a thin 3MP+ camera under $200. It should have good image quality, and the ability to shoot video clips. VGA quality @ 30fps is not necessary.

So far I have found the Kodak Easyshare V530.
I would like to know if there's anything at a lower price.

Thin Cameras

The rule of thumb is: The thinner the camera, the more the cost.

Here is what I could find for under $200:

The two Canon cameras may be hard to find, as they are out of production now.

The Casio is out of production too, but there are some available.

The Nikon is a new camera, but it got a poor review due to it slow performance. (shutter lag is over 1 second).

Thanks + low-resolution cameras
In reply to: Thin Cameras

Thanks for your help.

The Canons look good, but I think I'll stick with the V530.

I've also seen the Philips PT44434 on Walmart for $90, but there's no info on if it's able to capture short video clips although it provides the 3MP I was looking for. No optical zoom, either, although I can live with that.

If the whole thin camera thing doesn't work, I'll just get a budget camera like the Kodak C300 or the aforementioned PT44434, as I won't be zooming very often and just taking snapshots.

Oops...

I meant low-priced camera, not low-resolution.

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
