Digital Cameras Under £200

Once you are prepared to between £150 and £200 for a digital camera you have almost full choice when it comes to buying compact models. You can choose between some of the best pocket cameras and some cameras with a tremendous amount of zoom if you need that sort of power to get in close to distant subjects.

At this price point build quality is usually very good. You should also be able to find cameras offering eye catching picture quality. Unless you are in the market for an older model all cameras are likely to be able to record High Definition movies.

At this level cameras with manual exposure control start to be more widely available. This type of digital camera is more likely to appeal to the more serious photographer who sees photography as a hobby.
