    One of the main differences in the digital cameras of today and those of a year ago are the megapixel count- a great marketing gimmick for 90% of people who only take snaps and only need a 2.5 megapixel count for a photo print.
    For that reason you can often pick up a perfectly good 1-2 year old digital camera for as little as 500 dollars. I'd go that route (as have many friends in a similar predicament) if I had to kake the choice.

    Yes- for the simple reason that kids don't need many of the advanced features and if it gets droppped or broken it's less of a drama.

    Well I'm looking for christmas presents for my kids, so I'm looking for something new! Went to Times Square and Windsor Center today in Causeway bay and couldn't find a cheap camera. My budget is under 500 HKD and the cheapest camera I saw was around 1000! So if anybody has a better address...

    Thx!!!

    I don't mind buy second hand but yes, for Christmas presents, not so good.

    I may be way off but I think Kodak sell inexpensive digital cameras in the bigger Watsons. Am I right?

    Try some of the computer centres if you're after cheap digital camera's, you can get one easily for under $1000 HK brand new.
