Want to buy a decent camera, but do not want to spend much money? We have to you have great news – now on the market, you can find some inexpensive cameras, including the entry-level DSLRs, stylish looking mirrorless cameras, advanced high-end compacts and psevdozerkalnyh cameras with large zoom lenses.

Last cell in the line RX100, RX100 IV model is one of my favorite compact camera , but it is worth noting that it is not so cheap. The good news is that the original RX100 camera can still be found in stores, but due to the fact that it is not equipped with some of the latest features, it is even more compact. Large 1-inch sensor provides an excellent level of detail, and excellent zoom lens makes this camera a versatile companion for any adventure.
Yes, there is no built-in viewfinder and rotating the screen, as in the Mk IV, but it offers a monitor that provides excellent clarity and a lot of options like setting for those who want to have at hand a practical camera. Considering all of the above, this compact camera can be called the best value.
