If you are looking for a fairly cheap camera then you should consider looking into the entry level digital cameras. These don't have as many high tech features as the more expensive ones but still take pretty good pictures.

The resolution of digital cameras is given in mega pixels. If you get a camera with higher mega pixels then it will take sharper pictures and have better quality. Another factor to think about is that the higher the mega pixels the more storage space you will need on your memory card.

The zoom will be better on the more expensive cameras but the cheaper ones still have enough zoom capabilities to work for most pictures. When you are looking to buy a digital camera you should decide whether or not you would want to have a better zoom or not.
