For a budget under $200, you will get the right value for money from some of the best Point and Shoot digital cameras. Look for reasonable zoom (even up to 10x or 12x), good resolution (14+ megapixel) and ease of use. Competition is thriving, and cheaper need not mean that you forgo essential features like good low-light performance and quick response time. With the intelligent use of certain optical elements like CMOS sensor, your Point and Shoot can get you excellent image quality in a range of conditions and offer even full 1080p HD video if you need, besides giving you quick shot-to-shot times and rapid autofocus.
