Digital camera prices have been constantly dropping whilst the quality
and complexity of the digital cameras has been rising rapidly. People who
used to only dream of owning a digital camera because of the excessive
digital camera prices may now be able to afford much better cameras than
they realize. In fact, digital camera prices have changed so dramatically
that a 5- or 6-megapixel point-and-shoot digital camera has dropped below
what a 4-megapixel camera was selling for less than a year ago.

Digital camera prices of $200-$300 are now common for good point-and-
shoot digital cameras that come with an image resolution of up to 5 mega
pixels and a 3X optical zoom lens. It is important to recognize what the
minimum features are to expect for this range of digital camera prices.
Digital camera prices between $200 and $300 should include:

*   1.3 frames per second shooting capability
*   10 to 20 scene modes
*   built-in flash
*   lens openings from f2.8 to f4.8
*   optical viewfinder and an LCD of 1.5 to 2 inches
*   optical zoom lens with a range equivalent to that of a 35-115mm lens
*   rechargeable batteries
*   shutter speeds of 4 seconds to 1/2000 second
*   solid plastic or metal housing
*   video clip capture at 320 by 240 resolution with audio

Digital camera prices can vary and it is essential to know what the most
useful features are. Obviously you want to take good pictures but don’t
want to pay the inflated digital camera prices that the high-end cameras
have. However, your priority should be to assess which features are the
most important to enable you to take the best pictures. The higher the
numbers of megapixels that the cameras have, the higher the digital
camera prices are but this does not necessarily guarantee better
pictures.
One of the most useful features to look for in the $200-$300 range of
digital camera prices for point-and-shoot picture taking is scene modes.
Digital camera prices are not affected very much by having scene modes
but these allow an amateur photographer to take shots such as a fireworks
display and sunsets without knowing how to adjust the camera settings
manually. The majority of the better digital cameras within the $200-$300
range of digital camera prices have scene mode selections available.
Another feature of cameras within the $200-$300 range of digital camera
prices is that they are compact and will fit in a jacket pocket.
