For a sub-$100 digital camera, the Samsung ES80 should provide a nice set of features for beginning photographers.
The ES80 is offered in three body colors - red, black, or silver - and it measures only 0.82 inches in thickness, making it a nice option for beginners. You'll find 12.2 megapixels of resolution, a 5X optical zoom lens, a 2.4-inch LCD screen, and 720p HD video capabilities with the ES80.
Certainly, none of those specifications are particularly impressive, but they are decent options for a sub-$100 camera. (Compare Prices)
