So Mustek is dropping a new cheaper than dirt compact camera, the 8 megapixel MDC-832Z, which rings in at $250 and is a followup to their 830Z shooter. Unfortunately, while the new camera does add 30 fps VGA recording as opposed to the 20 fps of the 830Z, the 832Z packs a mere 2-inch LCD, shaving off a half inch of screen and with it we're sure a few dollars. Obviously you're better off with a 4-6 megapixel camera that actually has the optics to handle its resolution, but if it's more more more megapixels for you, then the 832Z might be one of your cheapest options yet.
