Sub-$100 digital cameras can’t compete with more expensive options in terms of features and size of prints, but you’ll be surprised at what they can deliver. When examining a camera in this category, first find out how large its pictures are, and the resolution of video if it offers. Look into whether the batteries are rechargeable, and if so, how long does a charge last? Examine ease of use, how compact the camera is, and what kind of software ships with it to manage and edit photos. Does it offer features like face detection, anti-shake, or waterproofing? What shooting modes does it offer, and can you expand the storage with an SD card?
