is there a good value camera under $300 that good for photos at night?
all digital cameras I have had (canon powershot) been bad for night photos, image always blurry
No such a thing for 300 bucks.
^ true story. You'd need a SLR with a larger sensor than a compact point and shoot / able to resolve light well at a higher ISOs . which is nowhere near $300.
Canon S100 is pretty good but is >300.
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V can be seen for around $300
or Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20
or Canon PowerShot SX260 HS
You can get the Canon S100 for slightly over your budget at $339 from DWI, but it seems they've been getting a bad rap lately for some reason (I've used them in the past and they've been great, but it's been a while since I've last used them).
Alternatively, you can look around for the older Canon S95, which is still a great camera.
I got the Sony HX9V from the Harvey Norman BOGOF deal a while back, and found it's low-light performance to be decent. They've now got the HX10V, which you can get from DWI for $291.
