Some cameras have a small amount of internal memory and some do not. If you want more than a few images, you will need to add a memory card.

You have to have one of the cameras that have internal memory. The only ones I can think of are a few of the Fuji's and a few of the Kodaks.

One source:

Go to this link:

Add up to 10 camera models into the right window.
Then click "Compare Side by Side"

That will give you a display like this next link:

Scroll down the specifications until you see one called "Storage Included".
Storage Types will be one line above that.
For any additional information click the yellow question mark (?) beside the specification name.

Remove the memory stick and then you can access internal memory.

What camera are you talking about. Is it one you have now. If you tell us the make and model, we can tell you if it has it or not.
