What is the best camera for the price?

by joker5667 / September 10, 2005 8:23 AM PDT

I am looking for a digital camera that is compact and good for a beginner. I want to spend around two hundred dollars and not get a piece of junk that will break or crack. Im going to college so I want to keep it for a while.

Kodak, one of the best selling cameras on the market. Konica Minolta. Fuji, very good in low light. Panasonic with a price with options that is hard to beat. Nikon, still king of the hill with the new models. Best tip is to just avoid Canon. They are cheap and break easily.
