    Looking for a camera...HELP please?

    I sometimes sell on ebay but would like to be able to sell on here too. I know I need a digital camera but what sort of spec would be good? I only sell unwanted items from our household (clothes, dvd's, shoes, toys and other 'clear out' stuff) so it doesn't need to be too complicated for the job!

    If you're just looking for a really cheapo one to put photos on here, etc, then I've got a Hewlett Packard Digital Camera that'll do the job perfectly.

    It is a about 4 years old (quite a small viewing screen on the back and only 2MB pixels, but still works and comes with usb cables, battery charger and two memory cards.

    If you're interested, let me know, would probably want about £15ono for it. I could post some pictures on here if you want.

    I bought a 2MB one off here but it isn't really good enough. I reckon I need more than 2MB. Thanks but I'll decline your offer

    If it's only to show small pictures on screen then just about anything will have enough resolution. To give you an idea, my laptop screen displays at 1280 * 800 which is about 1 million pixels (or 1Mpixels) so even a vga camera would produce a picture of a good enough size for ebay or on here. You could even use a half decent mobile phone camera, or even a webcam. However, if you want fairly good quality then you could do a lot worse than looking at the canon outlet on eBay, or the Fuji refurb website. Any digital camera on either of these sites would be more than adequate, and you could also use them for taking photos to keep aswell. Should get something for £40 or so. An old decent brand camera will be better than a new no-brand one simply because of the optics and lens they use.
