The best ultra-compact digital cameras for party photos are basically the point and shoot models which should be easy-to-use and support high portability. Available in variety of colors these cameras offer pretty image and video quality and some of them even support waterproof feature too. It would be of great choice to opt a camera with burst mode feature because there is probability of capturing moving subjects during the parties. Most of the cameras listed below can be affordable under $200 price range they are also the lightweight models.
