$100 is the cheapest you can look for when it comes to buying digital cameras. The best cameras at the sub-$100 budget are mostly the basic point and shoot models. The best sub-$100 cameras are limited to brands like Kodak and Pentax - as Nikon and Canon are generally higher priced. Even then it is possible to get some older but pretty good models of Nikon and Canon under 100 dollar.
