Digital Camera Price Factors

Most point-and-shoot digital cameras like the Nikon Coolpix, Sony Cybershot and Canon PowerShot are worth $1 to $15, though a few models can be worth $20 to $35 to buyback stores.
Digital camera values depend on many factors, including resolution (megapixels), shutter speed, optical zoom and condition. The better these features, the more a given camera is generally worth.
