Best digital camera for under $100

In my last blog post of this sequence I’m going to highlight what I think the best digital camera is for under $100 (See also: under $200 and under $300). While most consumer cameras range in the $200 - $500 range there are nevertheless good options available for digital cameras that are less than $100 for those of you on a tight budget.

The downside to buying cameras in this price range is that they are really point and click cameras with very little manual control. You will be able to change your cameras settings from landscape to night shot and other pre programs settings but manual shutter speed and aperture control are going to be hard to find in this price range.

This means that cameras in this price range are really glorified point and click cameras. That being said, they can be a great choice for people new to photography or just getting into digital picture taking. For less than $100 you can get the Nikon Coolpix L11 Digital Camera which boasts a price tag of $99.99 and offers many great features which I’ll outline below.

Features of the Nikon Coolpix L11 Digital Camera (approximately $99.99)
6 megapixels
Lets you shoot movies with sound
ISO sensitivity: Auto (auto gain ISO 64-800)
Built in flash
Lens: 3x Zoom-Nikkor; 6.2-18.6mm (35mm [135] format picture angle: 37.5-112.5mm); f/2.8-5.2; 6 elements in 5 groups; digital zoom: up to 4x (35mm [135] format picture angle: approx. 450mm)

However, there are many cameras that can achieve these goals. What I like most about his camera is the color it produces, the relatively high megapixel count and the great reviews it’s received online and offline. It has a perfect 5 star rating on Wolf Camera with 9 reviews (to date). People’s expectations seem to be surpassed when they purchase this digital camera which costs them less than $100. Not a bad deal!
