    Hmmm is blueberry or strawberry jam? Sorry can't honestly help ya...not familiar with that kind of digital camera. But I think you still have to upload your pictures either into a program or a site. If you go with a program and want to post them here then you'll have to upload them into the site. You might want to take the extra time and upload them in both spots. I know it seems like a lot of work but if your computer ever crashes they will be on the site. Or if the site ever has problems then you'll have them on the computer. Make sense? If it doesn't then well, tough! [​IMG]

    Yeah K30 you gotta etract them from the camera into the comp using whatever software and port they need. Some have a port they plug in and some will plug into the floppy. Then you need to put them on the web somewhere... like zing... then you can link to them. Diffently want to see some pics of your rigs! [​IMG]

    How much you pay for it? I want just a no perks cheap digtial camera... anyone know where I can get one cheap so I can get some pics up? I'd love to start doing some write ups on mods, developing film and then scanning at school takes forever.

    I can't vouch for how good they are but I've heard the "Barbie" digital cams are cheap and work...

    I read the instruction book like, 10 times, and still am confused!!! [​IMG]
    We got it today at Wal Mart for $60.00.
    I will be messing with it tomorrow and doing some testing on this site. Are the web sites to download them free? Like Zing, or Photopoint, etc? Just want to find a free site. [​IMG]
    Eventually we will get a digital camera later. I just wanted something cheaper for now. In case anybody didnt know, my first dig. camera got stolen. [​IMG]

    In the digital camera dept. ...... YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR I just went thru this before i bought mine. Wanted something affordable, and good. But those two things dont really go together. I ended up finding the camera i wanted and buying it on E-bay. That made it good and affordable.

    '89 K5..... 4" Tuff Country EZ Ride. 33's and a "Colorado K5.com" sticker. This site rocks!!

    That Barbie one is supposed to be for girls....they do have a boy one that is Hot Wheels. I'd take it anyday. It's blue with flames on it. Much cooler then a pink camera with a flower on it.....

    Barbie is awful! (I do own one though. It's the Nascar one.) I always had those big GI Joes....and we cut Barbies hair off to make her a real female American Hero. She didn't fair too well though in her heels and tight satin skit.... man I miss those cool GI Joe dolls...wonder what I ever did with them?!

    So why use a dig, camra? Are they better than scanning a 35mm photo and posting it? What gives with these things? I gotta a lota of "pics" but have no idea how to post them. I have to figure out how to turn the scanner on first, then what?

    Dig camera allows you too upload pics instantly, instead of paying for processing and all that crap that takes time...and money![​IMG]

    Click...post vs.click...waste last 5 exposures...drop off film...pay too much cuz yer in a rush...scan pics...then post.

    A scanner is great for pics you already have though.

    Rene...no scanner, no digi camera[​IMG]

    I've got to get a scanner for all my pics, till then I not going to bother with my website. How's the quality on those jamcams? Are the pics fuzzy or not bad?
