Inexpensive digital camera

by davy08 / July 7, 2010 6:40 PM PDT

I'm looking to purchase an inexpensive digital camera.
Want to use it mostly for taking good close up picture of items to upload to my sellers account on Ebay.
Had one at one time but have seemed to have mislocated it.
Lost it is a better word for it.
Don't want to spend over $100.00 for one.
A good megapixel with at least a 2" screen & opticle zoom lense.
Not a very good camara buff when it comes to taking good close up pictures.
They always come out being blurry taking close up pictures only.
Have photo software to fix blurry pictures, but there again not very good at using the software to correct the pictures.
Any idea's or tips on locating one would be greatful.
A good used or refurbished one would be ok as well.
Looked on Ebay.
Looking for a good deal on one.
Thank's!
David

Found a seller on EBay "Shutterblade" with good ratings 99.1%. Has a long list of used 35mm,lenses,Tripods & digital cameras of all brands.
Just thought i'd post this if anyone is interested in good used cameras.
May be a start for me.

If you are looking for a used camera, look for any of the Canon "A" series of cameras (A400 or higher).

Blurry pictures of small items is almost always caused by camera movement.
A tripod will solve that problem.

Found one of those Kodak pocket digital camera's "new" not refurbished for $11.00 on sale.
Hope it's going to do what I want it to do.
Big sale on all camera's.

Found the one I needed

I purchased a Kodak CX6330 with docking station at a good price used & in really good shape I might add.
The only thing I made a mistake when getting it was it only accepts a SD type 2 gb card & nothing higher.
Tried a PNY Optima High Capacity High Speed 4 gb & that's where I found out it wouldn't accept it.
I use it in my HP Compac desktop to upload pics to it from my HDD to upload to my Gateway laptop & other computer's on my network for safe keeping.
I merely use it for a storage device.
I wouldn't have purchased it I had known that but now i'm stuck with it.
That's fine though. It work's great!!
Just have to carry more 2 gb card's with me when using the camera for movie's I guess.
Have only used it for taking pictures for now & no movie taking as of yet.

Inexpensive digital camera.....

First, I don't think you'll find anything decent for more than a couple hundred bucks, at the least! I have a Fuji FinePix S8100fd megszoom with macro and super-macro capabilities, and even a setting for multi - picture for online auctions, which is perfect for what you're doing. Also, I'd strongly recommend one of the few all in one mini studios with 2 lights and two different backgrounds, perfect for close product shooting and good close-up lighting. Mine cost $49 at my local Wal~Mart. If you're doing this work for a living, you could probably write the cost of equipment off as a business expense. Hope this helps!

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
