Size doesn't matter
Strengths: Compact, Green Mode, Exposure & shutter control
Weakness: Software, USB connection
This compact 7mp 3x camera gets the best bang for your buck, I got it for around $80 AR from Amazon. I took it to Six Flags on 4th July and it gave me good results indoor and outdoor. I thought I shoot use its Fireworks mode, and then I got the disappointment. Probably it needs a tripod at least for night mode. It does need a special USB cable, comes with camera, but then I like standards...

This compact 7mp 3x camera gets the best bang for your buck, I got it for around $80 AR from Amazon.
I took it to Six Flags on 4th July and it gave me good results indoor and outdoor. I thought I shoot use its Fireworks mode, and then I got the disappointment. Probably it needs a tripod at least for night mode.
It does need a special USB cable, comes with camera, but then I like standards better..!
Battery drain is still a bit high, and you need to pack one extra pair for a day's work.
I liked the pictures, very clear and bright. Even my 12 year old tried her hands and she got good pictures. She took a picture of our parakeets. Now you know that most AF cameras will get get confused in case of caged objects. I did decently.

No probs here!
Strengths: PRICE, ease of use, PRICE, quality of video, PRICE!
Weakness: NONE at this price!
I bought this as a replacement for my lost PowerShot. After shopping around and finding a great deal with a rebate (not that hard, actually), this cost $92. $92?! The camera is incredible for the price! Get yours before I buy the rest for my family.

Easy to use and nice for the price
Strengths: Simple, convenient, compact, decent features and performance for a point and shoot. Great choice of languages for camera menus and bundled software.
Weakness: A power glutton. Regular AA batteries will probably last less than 10 shots with flashlight. Manuals available only in a small subset of supported languages.
Nice camera overall, but you will need rechargeable AA batteries (and a charger) for it. Regular batteries can only be used in emergencies as the camera consumes a lot of power. International users may have to read the manual in English, German etc. if there's no manual in their language, even though that language may be supported by the camera.

Well Priced Entry Level Digicam
Strengths: Compact size, Easy to operate with user friendly on-screen display, Takes good pictures under ample lighting condition.
Weakness: No Viewfinder, Takes only AA batteries, Power consumption.
For the price of the camera, there should really be no complaints. This is a good entry level camera for consumer who is on a limited budget. The picture quality is pretty good at both indoor and outdoor under well-lighted condition. The night shot is a bit weak though. Overall, I am satisfied with the performance of this camera.

Pentax E30 Camera
Strengths: Small, Pentax brand
Weakness: low-light pics not so good
This is a nice inexpensive 7.1 Megapixel camera from famous camera makers Pentax. its very portable (shirt-pocket) and takes nice outdoor pictures where there i senough light. indoor pics are not so good as the flash is small too. kind of expected from small cameras.
