Digital Cameras Under £150

In the digital cameras priced between £100 and £150 bracket you start to see a lot of choice in the cameras available. It includes some pocket cameras that offer that bit better all round quality than the cheaper models both in terms of picture and build quality. You can also buy robust models that are waterproof, shockproof and freezeproof. So you have a lot more choice in this bracket than with cheaper models. There are touch screen models and you should be able to find cameras with some extra zoom too.

The biggest difference when you pay a little extra comes when you use a digital camera in tougher conditions such as lowlight. Not every digital camera in this price range will give you great quality, but if you look around you should find a bit of extra class.

In this price bracket you will also find one or two models that are still available, but have been around for a while. This means they may not have all the latest features, but don't have that much missing and are available at a very reasonable price.
