PM Wicked Won and ask what kind of camera he uses.

He always has it in his pocket and gets "the shots" some of the pictures he posted or maybe all were taken with this camera and they always look nice and clear.

Check out the Saber thread and I'm sure you will come across a couple Pict's

I have a Cannon One Shot and a Nikon Coolpix. Coolpix wins by a mile. Cannon way too slow.

I almost bought the Kodak yesterday. What scared me away from it was the fact that it did`nt take the AA sized batterys but what looks like a proprietary battery. I would`nt be able to carry extras or be able to charge them off of a 12 volt power source. That, along with the fact that there may be limited availability,if any, down the road....The search continues!

I have a Nikon coolpix 3100. I love it,pictures are
beautiful. So small it fits right in your pocket.
The only complaint I have, (and it might be with all
digital cameras) Is when you take a flash picture,
there is, like a 1-2 second delay after you press the
button,before the camera actually takes the picture.
By then the person has moved and it screws the picture up. Just something you have to get used to.

Default Canon Elph

I have had the Elph 300 for a couple years and like it
a lot. Real small, functional and easy to use. It's
taken a beating and still works fine.

Good luck

Do you have to do anything to post pictures from digital cameras, such as change the size. I ask this because I have tried to scan pictures, but they always turn out to be too large to attach. I know, I am photo illiterate.

Default re-size

I notice the board s/w will perform auto resizing.
I don't know the upperlevel threshold though.

There are several commercial products you can use
to resize an image such as adobe photoshop elements
ot paint shop pro.

Here's a link to a site I run that uses the same
s/w. I would cut and paste the data but there are
imbedded links to the s/w that you may like.
