Hi kevdon. If you can use a card reader, then you don't need to worry about whether the camera is compatible. The problem may be that Windows 95 doesn't work very well with any usb device.

From memory I think only the final version of Win95 had USB support, and then it was very limited. As Gongoozler says, you don't need to worry about what camera it is. Just make sure your PC can see a card reader through the USB port. If it can just buy the cheapest camera that suits you.

You may find that you'll haveto buy a copy of Windows 98se. A computer fair is likely to be the cheapest source, or you can get it for about £60 click here

A quick search with Google reveals that there are some digital cameras which will work with Win 95 -- Konica list some drivers for instance, but they may be old models.

As Gongoozler says, your best bet may be to go to Win 98SE, and then you can get the most up-to-date camera that suits your budget.

You will not get USB working on Win95. You need to buy a Win98se CD on ebay

As you're on a small budget, go for a low pixel model. For putting pictures on Ebay, 1Mp is ample, and will also be ok for 6x4 inch prints. If you get one with Compact Flash card, that will be cheap as well (32Mb for £6.99 click here), and a card reader for only £7.04 click here.
