The best cameras for beginners are the relatively inexpensive point and shoot models. These are easy to handle and operate, convenient to carry outdoors and most give pretty decent pics. This best cameras for beginners list includes some of the lighter and cheaper options.

The best digital cameras for beginners are relatively easy to handle and operate, are compact enough to carry around in your pocket and produce pretty decent pics. The entry level point and shoot cameras make a great choice since you can literally flip them out and start clicking.

If you are a beginner buying your first digital camera then you need to evaluate what kind of photography you will be getting into. If you plan on taking the camera on vacations and for family outings then a good point and shoot would do. Many models come with advanced features such as in-built image stabilization and face detection, which is a very useful feature when you need to capture pictures with kids or pets etc. If you want to make photography your hobby and plan on taking out your camera every weekend, then a more accomplished mega zoom or high end compact would suit you better. The mega zoom models have excellent optical zoom and in-built image stabilization and are cheaper than the entry-level dSLRs and more lightweight too.

The best digital cameras for beginners are equipped with excellent autofocus and Easy Auto modes, where all you have to do is to frame your shot and the camera does the rest of the work for you.
