Finding a digital camera on the cheap
I work for an agriculture publication. Our sales reps travel to take pictures for advertising. This costs lots of time and money. So, we're thinking of buying cameras for 50 of our biggest customers. The camera needs to be less than $100. Simple software and ease of use are paramount. It needs to work on XP and Vista. Megapixels are not terribly important. Our printed photos are less than five inches wide. Any suggestions?
There are easier ways to download the photos. First, cameras usually appear as a removable storage device in Windows.
You simply connect the camera via USB port. The camera appears in (My) Computer. Double-click the camera and navigate to the photos. Then, drag and drop them onto your hard drive.
You can also buy card readers for memory cards. You remove the card from your camera and pop it into the reader. Connect the reader to a USB port. Then, find the photos and drag them to the hard drive. You can find readers for about $5.
Either of these methods would be easier than messing with software. And, you won't need to worry about the operating system. At this point, any camera you buy should work in XP and Vista.
So, how much camera can you get for less than $100? Click here!
