Ten Essential... Budget Compact Cameras
Summer snappers for less than 150 quid
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W320
The DSC-W320 looks and feels more expensive than it is. This light, compact camera slips easily into a pocket, but can be a little awkward to use if you have large fingers. There’s also a bit of a delay between pressing the shutter and the image being captured. On the plus side, it takes both SD and Memory Stick Duo cards, includes a 14Mp CCD, shake compensation and offers a decent 26-105mm zoom. Picture quality is impressive too, with fine detail and vivid colours, although macro shots were a little disappointing. Battery life is good for around 240 shots.
