This is the camera I've just ordered from Target. It meets my fairly limited requirements - under $50 (before S&H, but still . . .), takes 3.1 megapixel photographs and is small.
In the last couple of weeks I've done a lot of studying about digital cameras and, as I understand it, 3.1 megapixels is sort of a minimum for 8x10 photographs. I can't quite see why I would want to print something that big, but who knows. I plan to primarily use the camera to photograph things in SCW and then put them on computer (perhaps blog), so I really don't need to be able to take photographs at a high resolution.
I also just can't see spending much on a phone in case it breaks, gets stolen, etc., etc. So far on Alta Loma I've broken a dinner plate, a liter size glass bottle of olive oil, a plastic 2 quart container of soup, 1/2 gallon plastic jug of coffee, two water bottles (one frozen, one not). Ummm . . . that is what I can think of off-hand. Oh, and my Chez Nous mug (the mug is okay, but the handle is gone). I complained to Chez Nous management, but didn't get very far. The tile floors here are hard on stuff. Anyway . . . one of the numerous reasons I went for an inexpensive camera is breakage.
In case you are interested, the link is here for the camera on the Target website.
