View Full Version : Best Sub-$300 Digital Camera?
Hey folks, what do you think the best sub-$300 digital camera is? I was thinking we could finally pick something decent out that will include all the accesories like battery-packs, memory-cards, chargers, etc. I'm registered on pointclick.com so I can get an extra 10% back from mobshop in addition to the $25 Visa rebate and I still have all my Mercata Dollars (thanks to my ex-gf). Is the Fuji MX-1200 the way to go ? After using Wal-Mart and actually buying a decent memory card that puppy will set me back around $275. I'm tempted to run out and buy that today because I don't want Wal-Mart to sell out http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/wink.gif Thanks for your time guys.

Check some of the other posts, especially the last two days. There has been a lot of information passed around. Most will have links to some sort of consumer reports pages.

You can get the Olympus D-360l at Mobshop for $245 (after Pointclick and Visa rebate). A good set of NiMHs and a charger can be purchased from thomas-distributing.com/index.htm (http://thomas-distributing.com/index.htm) for ~$35. For $20, you can get an AC adapter from Outpost.com shipped overnight. Mobshop also has an 8M smartmedia card currently for $21.95.
**I just checked Mobshop and the cycle ends today @ 1:36PM EDT, though you may want to wait til the next cyle so you can read up on some reviews first to make an informed decision. IMHO, this Olympus is an excellent entry level digicam **

I'll second the Olympus D-360L. A GREAT camera for the price.
I third that Olympus. I have the D-450Z that was just recently replaced by the D-460Z that's even better. Either way, I recommend you go the Olympus way.
