Budget compact cameras:
Canon PowerShot A2100 IS
At under £100, the PowerShot A2100 IS has the kind of specs that would easily put a mid-range compact to shame. The 12MP sensor, 6x optical zoom and image stabilisation, alongside a 3inch LCD make it just about perfect for those on a tight budget.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS37
An 8x optical zoom, with stabilization, offers one of the impressive marquee features for this sub-£100 compact. A 16MP sensor allows the images to be both resolute and sharp, with a 3inch screen making framing and reviewing simple.
Fuji has performed the unlikely with the JZ500; putting a 10x optical zoom inside a budget body. This 14MP sensor-sporting camera may not look overtly spectacular on the surface, but underneath are some highly impressive electronics for the price range.
