New York Times' David Pogue recently pondered what he calls an annual question: How much digital camera can you get for $300? Pogue notes:
This year, 11 companies submitted their best cameras with a street price under $300. The contenders are the Canon A630, the Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z700, the Fuji FinePix F30, the Hewlett-Packard Photosmart R827, the Kodak EasyShare C875, the Nikon Coolpix S7c, the Olympus Stylus 740, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX3, the Pentax Optio A20, the Samsung Digimax NV3 and the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W100.
His More Camera, More Style, Modest Price criteria was based on style, speed, low-light and shutter power, megapixels and battery. Check back Monday for my holiday digital camera gift guide.
