Digital Camera Buying Guide

Digital Cameras Under $100

In this price range, cameras are often very basic, leaving out many of the features their bigger brothers will have. What they lack in features, though, they tend to make up for with a lower price.

The first one we mention, the Vivitar Vivicam 7022, is exceptionally cheap. For its low price, it isn't a bad camera to grab if you want something basic to take on a trip with you so you can leave your expensive camera at home. However, know that there is no optical zoom here, and picture quality will definitely suffer as a result of the cost.

Stepping up to the other end of this price range, we have two decent cameras to recommend. The first, the Samsung TL105, offers a 4x optical zoom. While this doesn't compare to most of the later cameras we will recommend, it is still pretty decent at this range. The picture quality from this camera, at 12.2 megapixels, is definitely decent. The camera doesn't offer a ton of features of a pricier option, but if all you want is something to take pictures with, this isn’t a bad pickup. Also of note is that it does come with a 4 GB SD card and a camera bag, a nice amount of added value.

The Nikon Coolpix L22 is a close second to the Samsung offering. It has many specs comparable to the Samsung , aside from the 3.6x zoom . The only thing keeping it from being our top recommendation is that it does not come with a bundle like the Samsung does.
