    Hi everyone.

    I want to buy a cheap digital camera (under $200) but I don't know what to look for when buying one. Could someone tell me how to choose an acceptable, cheap digital camera? What brands/models are good? What do I need to know before buying one?

    Thanks in advance.

    your acceptable... and mine or someone elses may be miles apart...

    Just my opinion...don't buy a cheap one unless you want cheap/low quality photos...if that's ok... then anything under your price will probably do you fine

    I knew someone would tell me not to buy a cheap camera. But I'm only 15 and I don't need a really good camera. Just something that is acceptable for taking a few pictures every now and then.

    Also, thanks for the sites! They helped a lot. I'm going to compare some models now.

    Thanks again!

    I'm thinking of waiting until Christmas and getting a $400 camera instead. Maybe I can get an even better one the day after Thanksgiving...

    Wait-if you only want to take occasional snapshots any expennsive camera will become obsolete before you gget your use from it.
    If I waas 15 and looking for something I didnt need to treat with kid gloves I wouuld gget a $20 from Wallmart and play with it for a year oor two. They are sized to take good email photo's and snapshots-and good to take along on caming trips-no loss if you lose it.
