    I am looking for a cheep digital camera to take snap-shots and post them on the net. If I want to take real pics I have a nice SLR. I just want something cheep (as in around $50), durable (as in take it wheel'n), and easy to use (I have a USB port and know how to use it!) with reasonable quality (I don't need pics that fill up the whole page just enough to see some detail). Any sugestions on what modle to buy and where to buy it?

    I've got a Polaroid I-Zone combo digital/instant - picked it up at WalMart for $35. I saw some the other day at Target for 19.96.

    I got one off Ebay for under $50.00. It's a $300.00 camera at the store in the mall.

    I really want a Sony digital camera that uses a computer diskette. A friend of mine has one of those. It's a $500.00 camera, I'm just too cheap to get one.

    We have a Jam Cam that we bought with our computer. It's not bad for a cheap camera. All the pics we have ever posted have been taken with that. They can be bought at Walmart or even K-mart

    Thanks for all the replys. It looks like I'll be looking into a Jam Cam. Dona I looked at all the pics you posted and that is about what I'm looking for quality wise. Were all those taken w/ the quality turned all the way up?...Is the quality even adjustable?
