Which (and where are) cameras available for under $35?November 14, 2021 3:14 pm at 3:14 pm #2028153MosheFromMidwoodParticipant
You can easily search online for that but don’t expect great quality. You may be lucky but I have had cheap cameras and they don’t always produce great picturesNovember 14, 2021 3:40 pm at 3:40 pm #2028169
I’ve searched online and come up, pretty much, empty handed. Perhaps you can share what you’ve found for this.November 14, 2021 4:04 pm at 4:04 pm #2028177N8LAParticipant
In year’s past, you were able to get directly from Canon refurbished camera’s of very decent quality close to that price range, especially around the black friday season. YWN probably won’t allow for a link, but look it up.
Sometimes you can find on ebay, but in that price range, its not going to be new or factory refurbished.

Cameras that you will find under $35 will be low quality (meaning the video quality, not necessarily the actual camera quality). Even $60 dollar cameras are not as good quality as an old smartphone.November 14, 2021 5:09 pm at 5:09 pm #2028234hujuParticipant
A camera priced under $35 will not be half as good as the mediocre one that usually is part of a cell phone.November 14, 2021 5:29 pm at 5:29 pm #2028245☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
Amazon has some Vivitar cameras for under $30.
Obviously, they won’t be as good as most smartphone camera, but not everyone has a smartphone.November 14, 2021 5:29 pm at 5:29 pm #2028240
It’s for children. They aren’t getting a smartphone.
Thank you N8LA. Will look into that.
And still open to suggestions.November 14, 2021 6:56 pm at 6:56 pm #2028251TS BaumParticipant
I figured, but my point was that I have unsuccessfully searched for a camera in that price range of at least normal quality, and turned up empty-handed. I don’t know why they need to be $100 at least to be good quality. That’s just the way the economy (or whatever business-thing it is) works.November 14, 2021 7:15 pm at 7:15 pm #2028282
A generation ago there used to be disposable cameras; one-time use, develop the film and zeh hu. They weren’t really a wise economical choice despite their relative low cost. But there were always decent low-cost 35mm and 110 cameras. Once digital got rid of film cameras, this seems to have evaporated.
N8LA, I don’t see anything less than $100 of Canon’s refurb site. DY, thanks. I’m wary of Vivitar as the company went out of business and the name was bought by a low cost outfit.November 14, 2021 10:16 pm at 10:16 pm #2028318rightwriterParticipant
True few years back got Canon 16 megapixel Refurb for $15 directly from canon. It was pretty much brand new and in the box. Great deal.
Also, ya smartphone cameras have come a long way since and even at that time the smartphone cameras were probably better. But the pics on this Canon are definitely sufficient. The point and shoot cameras are pretty much obsolete nowadays unfortunately, I like using things that are dedicated to one specific function but its difficult to justify buying one when you have a better camera included in your phone.
You can try ebay though many Canon Elph models for around your price rangeNovember 14, 2021 10:42 pm at 10:42 pm #2028327ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤParticipant
Maybe try finding fake gopros they should have 12 mp and 1080 but wont have flexibility for settings like iso and aperture Ext.
