    I need a good digital camera, must be as cheap as possible.

    I'm going to be taking graphic card pictures for my upcoming reviews. So it needs to have a good focus at close range. I dont know what i'm talking about, i dont know anything about cameras.

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks !

    My pick would be the Samsung s730. Very nice camera, and you can find it NEW on ebay for $75.

    what do you consider cheap for a good camera - my family has a camera store and we have NOS at a bit of savings

    Look up the fuji s6500, at £130 i consider it cheap considering it has a 10.7x optical zoom which is ace. It is a 6.3mp camera and tbh it is one of the best i own, its easy for a beginner and takes beautiful crystal clear pics, its got multiple settings for shadows and dark etc so using it inside a case is great. Ive taken totally clear pics of my ram upclose en stuff. If your looking for a dirt cheap camera, try and find a small cam with about 3-5mp and a decent flash.

    I would suggest a Canon or Nikon point and shoot( maybe a Canon SD1000) - you can get great pics if you use the setting right... or you could go for an entry level DSLR as a lo of reviewers that take photos use them... PM me and I can get you the number if interested...
