Thanks in advance to anyone who replies! I need to buy a digital camera for the main purpose of posting pics on ebay and craigs list. I'm not even sure if I'm asking the right questions, but I'm wondering about storage options, uploading options, and future operating system compatability (I.E. I currently have XP but might end up with Vista)

Again,thanks

That counts me out; I work in pounds sterling! I recommend that you pick up some good magazines and read their recommendations and use shopping comparison websites to find a good price and a trustworthy retailer. For reviews, click here is very good.

For the purpose you state, you certainly don`t need anything expensive. However, you might like to consider that a slightly better camera would be useful for normal everyday snapshots.

As a start I would suggest the Canon PowerShot A460. This is priced at £68.40 from Amazon. I uses a SD Memory card, and the images can easily be uploaded to the PC, (best to use a memory card reader, which is cheap). Whilst I don`t use Vista, I cannot imagine there would be any difference to XP, in uploading the pics this way.

Watch a video demo of it here:

If you wish, the pictures could be edited in something like the free Irfanview, before sending to eBay.

Are you based in the USA, or the UK?.
