The best cameras under $350 combine a great image/video performance with a decently sized optical zoom. You can typically get the better performing, though expensive point-and-shoot cameras at this range. For the best camera option at below 350 dollar do not skimp on the optical zoom as it is easily the most useful feature to be spent upon.
