Phone cameras have gotten quite good recently. If you are looking for an excuse for the latest and greatest phone, this might be a way to go.
I don't have a camera. That is what I'm looking for. I have no intention of carrying my laptop into Walmart. We have a van that takes up to 7 of us to shop there weekly for 2 hours. I'd be a nervous wreck if I had to watch my cart that closely for that long!
Besides the fact that this IS low income housing, and I just don't want everyone knowing I have a computer at all.
I have a Safelink free cell phone, so I'm not going to buy a phone just for the camera.
I hope this clarifies things. I will have a discussion about this with a rep at the electronics counter and will also check to make sure the 1" port is actually for a digital card and what kind of card.
I'd like my DC to be reusable so that I don't have to keep buying them. Once I've uploaded my pictures, I can erase the card to use for more images. I can save (backup) my uploaded pix to a CD.
I'd really rather that I be able to plug the camera directly into the computer and not have to deal with memory cards at all. Is that possible?
