Sony DSC-W830
If you're going to go with a budget compact, Sony is usually a good choice.
By Hillary Grigonis, Last updated on: 6/19/2014

Sony is usually a pretty safe bet for budget compacts, and with a 20.5 megapixel 1/2.3” sensor and intelligent automatic settings, the image quality on the W830 should be pretty good considering the $130 budget price tag. Equipped with a bunch of easy-to use modes and features, the Sony W830 is a good no-fuss budget shooter. The camera isn't very fast, however, with just a 1 fps burst mode, so if you are looking for something to take action pictures or photos of young kids, save up a little bit longer to get a faster model like the Sony WX-150 or the more budget friendly Sony WX50, both with 10 fps shooting speeds; or the Nikon S6800 with 7 fps.
