Popular Digital Point & Shoot Cameras Under $150

Taking pictures is one of the best ways to capture all of life’s memories. Digital photos have made it much easier to share your pictures with family and friends, so that they can see your experiences and view your favorite life moments. This has led to a rise in high-quality cameras built into most smartphones, essentially replacing the need for digital point-and-shoot camera. However, not everyone has a smartphone with a built-in-camera, so having a high-quality digital camera is of high importance. Even those with smartphones will still use a standalone digital camera to complement their photographic needs.

The technology in today’s digital cameras have far exceeded the film cameras of old, which is why some shoppers are overwhelmed by all of the specifications for each camera. Here are some things to keep in mind when buying a digital camera:

  • A larger zoom range and higher number of megapixels does not always equate to a better camera
  • Buy something best for you or your gift recipient, and don’t necessarily focus on what is the best in a particular camera class
  • Always try out the camera before you buy it or research it online

With these things in mind, we invite you to check out our list of popular point and shoot digital cameras under $150 that would make great gift ideas this Holiday season:
