Class: Entry level compact

Entry level is term that indicates lowest and cheapest class in some product category. Concret, when it's about compact digital cameras, it indicates class intended to wide population where before everything low price comes to expression and characteristics of device itself are mostly in third plan. Those are cameras usually without optical zoom, low pixel number or too small sensor, made from bad plastic and very slow electronics. However when it's about entry level DSLR cameras, of course, description from above doesn't apply because they are mostly better from high end compact cameras. I say this to mention that entry level by itself doesn't mean something bad, but instead it should be closely related with certain category.
