Snap happy: top compact cameras under £100

A decent compact camera will ensure you do your family snaps justice. And these ones are proper bargains…

“What do I want with a compact camera?” you might ask yourself. “After all, I’ve got a smartphone and I take all my pictures on that.” Which is all well and good until you finally get around to printing out your precious memories and find that your mobile’s camera pics look great on screen, but fuzzy, pixelated and downright disappointing when printed out. Sure, high-end smartphones do feature genuinely top-notch cameras, but if yours isn’t one of those then you’ll find an entry-level compact will offer better quality than your mobile. Even better, look hard enough and you can find fully featured compacts for under £100. Just like these ones…

Sony W830

If you don’t mind your camera being a bit more chunky, opting for a bridge model such as this from Fujifilm brings several benefits. Not least of these is the fact that it’s much easier and more stable to hold than your average dinky little compact. Plus, inside that chunkier casing, it’s possible to tuck away a big zoom lens – the S8650 includes a 36x optical zoom. Unlike compact cameras as this price point, the S8650 comes with a range of manual and semi-automatic shooting controls – providing plenty of opportunity for more ambitious photographers to get creative.
