Elaine P. from London, UK DM'd TP this query last night:
"TechPinas, what's the cheapest pink Sony point and shoot digicam with most megapixels out in the market right now?"

Hi Elaine! Thanks for the inquiry!

Right now, I believe the cheapest Sony point-and-shoot digital camera with most megapixels that's available in pink is Sony DSC-W350:

Take advantage of the DSC-W350's high-grade Carl Zeiss 26mm equivalent wide angle lens and 4x zoom for beautiful picture quality. Take breathtaking panoramas in Sweep Panorama mode and review them on a 2.7-inch (diag.) screen, plus record 720p high definition movies. Enjoy reduced blur thanks to Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization. With so many features at your fingertips, the possibilities are endless.
