Just posted! The first of our Holidays '08 compact camera group tests. We're starting with the budget group, which contains nine models in the sub-$150 range. So what can you expect to get if shopping on a tight budget? Are there really any differences between the various models? And are there any bargains to be had or hidden gems in the entry-level ranges? Check out the roundup after the link to get all the answers...

Phil: Note this is the first of five group tests (Budget cameras, Ultra compact style, Advanced point and shoot, High end enthusiast and Ultra zoom), the next four groups will cover another 30 cameras.
