Basically I'm from india. As a trip I'm going to US. I plan to take up a new digital camera. I plan to purchase the camera for under $150.

Could you kindly suggest me which one i can go for? (I'm not professional photographer, the camera for just for my personal use)

1 Answer 1

as I see the price limit, I would recommend some compact camera (not possible to have new DSLR for such price) - personally would suggest some Panasonic Lumix - they have very good price/performance ration. Just try to choose some with optical stabilizer (I think the cheapest do not have it, so have a look). They have good lenses in this price level and are very user friendly. The resulting images are ok.

Other possibility is too have a look on used cameras or some clearance sales.
