Important Note: the A3100 was replaced by the Canon PowerShot A3300 (compare ).


The A3100 is one of the cheapest cameras you can buy and get away with it. Everything about it is basic. It has no special features, no fancy zoom, no low light capabilities and no high resolution video. It does, however, produce decent photos, especially for its price. You could also consider Panasonic's FH20, which adds a nice zoom lens and high resolution video for about the same price and within a similar size.
