How Much Are Photography Cameras
Before you automatically discount a sub-$100 digital camera due to its lack of power and features, bear in mind that cameras using quite similar specification lists into those cameras were likely $300, $400, as well as $500 cameras half a year back.
That is the fantastic thing about the $100 price point: The variety of features and technology that fall down to this budget amount happen always, therefore a camera which has been considered fairly powerful only a couple of decades ago might finally have dropped into the $100 price point.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W800 is an entry point-and-shoot compact camera with no bells and whistles. It does not possess the Exmor R detector which more costly Sony compacts do, nor wi-fi, and it is stuck using an unremarkable 5x zoom lens. But, that may not matter given its simple to use and produces great images.
