What should I do?

by Mr_Camera / May 24, 2011 11:56 AM PDT

Hello Everyone!This is my first post, and I wanted to know if anyone could recommend a camera to me that would be able to produce photos at a 640x480 scale, that can produce a date stamp, preferably has a rechargeable battery - and most importantly is cost effective, I'm on a budget! Any ideas?

Even if you know of only a camera that has only 2 of these attributes would be a help!If nothing else, maybe there is some software that could easily solve the scaling and date stamping issues post production?

Thank you thank you thank you!

Time/Date Stamp

There are a few cameras that can embed the date/time in the picture.
I don't know of any that can do this at 640x480.

I believe all of the Canon SD series of cameras can embed the date/time.
But only at what they call postcard size (1600x1200).

You could take all of the pictures at 1600x1200 and then do a batch resize to 640x480.
A free program called Irfanview can do a batch resize.

If by scale you mean 3:2, all cameras take photos in that aspect ratio.

oh, you want to buy a camera that can take photos with 640x480 scale, that's essily. You spent only under or over bit five milion. You can buy a good camera. I have a camera but it can take photo with 14.0 megapixel. That model is NIKON COOLPIX S3100. If you enjoy travel, you should choose NIKON camera because it very hard and take landcape verry good. But if you want to take people, you should choose CANON camera. BYE, CHOSE A GOOD CAMERA.
