Hello. I need to choose cheap camera. It should be valued at 100 eur. I know that it very low value and serious products costs much more. Until now I used Sony Ericsson C510 Cybershot (great phone for photography better than new one and older digital camera) for photography so my expectations isn't very big :laugh:

I am going to film a lot so 720p video recording is necessary. Also I will do a lot of photos from low distances. Good quality in low lighting would be great feature. Also general quality is also important thing.

At this moment I am looking for Sony W630. Exmor R technology looks great feature. If Sony says true it is thing that I can't live without. Does Carl Zeiss lens gives any advantages? Maybe this Sony features quality which couldn't be written in specs such as realistic colors better quality, lower lighting failure possibility or ect.

Also I found several cheaper options from Nikon, Fuji (Nikon N2600 for example) with similar specs and lower price. Does them features same photo quality? Are they are good at low lighting? And one more question. SAMSUNG EC-ST 66 costs twice less than Sony but have similar specs :twitch: . One thing against - small display. Does it haves same quality of photographies? There are something disadvantages for Samsung cameras? They looks extremely cheap.

Of course you can also suggest other cameras. Please make sure that it is available at www.avitela.lt and valued at ~400Lt (you don't need to know language - just type name in search box). Thanks for help :toast:
