I need one for on the road use.
My high end cameras I want to leave home and the phone is too clumsy and slow as I don't use it often.

Looking for a max of $100- good performer with a moderate zoom
I have many and some are starting to get funky. So I need a new one.
any ideas?
Thanks!

For travel and wanting to avoid a DSLR or your phone? Get something that uses AA batteries which you can grab in a pinch.
This Nikon should do the trick: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1316670-REG/nikon_coolpix_a10_digital_camera.html

Have a Samsung small camera with zoom, I slip it in my pocket and carry it for car show pictures. It's small handy and quick and does video very well.

Double that business on the AA batteries those proprietary batteries such and have way less power reserve.

I agree.
I'm in the market for a simple camera.

The problem: The cover that holds the batteries in place have a tendency of
breaking the tabs that hold it closed.
The reason: The contact points are in the cover and it has to be under some tension.
The solution: ? ? ?

I'd like to get a replacement camera before my current camera looses its batteries.
One tab is already broken.

My nikon DSLR has a "backup tab" that holds its lithium ion battery in, if the battery door gets lost. The lithium battery's contacts are all internal to the camera as well, so the battery door is electrically unimportant.

Might be worth checking if they have a similar feature on P&S models.

Would depend on the specific shape of the camera, but "universal" solutions to this kind of thing are, of course, duct tape, rubber bands (perhaps "industrial strength" ones cut from bike/car/truck inner tube) and cable ties. Perhaps carve a spacer block from foam or rubber to put direct pressure on the cover.

If you can get a case that allows camera operation it could perhaps substitute for the lashings.

I bought my wife a Canon Powershot ELPH 180 a while back when she went to New Zealand to visit our daughter. It was just over $100 and it took decent photos. Nice and small, 8x zoom, and replacement batteries from Amazon were cheap.

I use Olympus cameras and they serve me well. When my mom wanted one, I went to Target and they sold me a discontinued model at an amazing price, then they added an SD card for free.
