View Full Version : Budget Cameras

I'm looking for advice here on a digital camera.
I'm a poor college student looking to pick up my first camera (digital or otherwise)
Looking for a BUDGET digital camera.
Built in flash a must.
As well as auto focus.

There's a sale coming up on HP Photosmart 635. $90 Canadian (so what about $5 American?)

I'm kinda lost as to what I need to look for in specs, brands and such.
Anyone have some links to compare what a picture from a 2.1 MP camera looks like as compared to a 3/5/8/eleventy billion MP.

Any help would be much appreciated.

My college nephew uses info at www.cnet.com - follow links to digial.
Also - there's great info right here at Reviews & Info.

What is your budget?

At the bottom of this first page you will find a thread begun by electric ecipse entitled, "Budget Digital Cameras Under $150." There is an entire thread with lots of info for you.

alright, thanks for the link.

Yes, I did forget to post my budget.
I'm hoping to stay under $150 (Cdn) and really trying my best to keep it under $250 (Cdn).
That HP 635 looks like a good deal to me. I'm just kind of curious if its going to be a $100 paperweight or its goign to take good enough pictures for me.
