Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX150
Best budget camera
Easier, faster and with more fun extras, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX150 flat-out beats all other under-$250 digital cameras in reviews. Photos and HD videos look great. The Sony can shoot 3D, panoramic, rapid-fire (10 photos per second) and more. It squeezes an impressively long zoom (10x) into its super-slim body. Plus, testers say it's refreshingly easy to use -- literally just point and shoot.
