  • [[Artnid:277413|Canon PowerShot A480|Review: Canon PowerShot A480 compact digital camera]]

    Price: $176 (Save: $3)

    Digital cameras that cost under $200 don't set the world on fire with their image quality, and sometimes they are uncomfortable to use and lack features. Canon's [[artnid:277413|PowerShot A480]], which costs $176 at [[xref:|JB Hi-Fi|JB Hi-Fi: Canon PowerShot A480 compact digital camera]], has an awkward design but it makes up for it with its image quality. It's capable of capturing very clear shots compared to many of its competitors, and we think it's the best budget compact on the market.
