Oh, I saw a digital camera I would like to have.



It only costs $20 new, and has a little preview screen. (I've owned a couple of cheap digital cameras without such a screen, and I've never learned to work them.:( I lost track of them before their software was ever installed on the computer).

The one I was examining said Windows 2000 or WinXP were minimum requirements.

I am thinking that, once the image was processed, I should be able to copy individual pictures to other computers with a USB thumb drive. (Or, would I be able to use a floppy for old computers? I don't know how many bytes a picture will take).

Those in the States can see the camera in their local Walgreen's Drug Store.

If I had such a camera, I would be posting in the picture competitions.;) I don't know if I would ever win, but--hey--it'll be more fun for others if they have another person to beat.:D

Someday. . . .

It'll depend on the "megapixel" of the digicam, on what size the image files will be... The greater the MP, the greater the image file size...

You shouldn't have too many issues with the USB stick, depending on it's capacity, and providing it works on the older PC... (Win98?) The same size scenario will apply to the Floppy disks, minus the compatibility issues...

Why are you still messing about with the old PC, I thought you were now using a better spec'd XP PC...?

Daz, my friend Lisa is still using Windows 95, and she has no internet connection (no phone line, even). I could very well want to bring her some pictures to view.

I still see Windows 98 about from time to time, expecially on computers with limited resources. Some of the older, small hard drives seem a better fit for 98 than XP.

I really would do well to sort out my extra computers. Perhaps one of them should become a dedicated music machine to play CDs. Another could be a machine for older games. Etc.
