Default off topic, digital camera

I am looking into finally buying a digital camera. My simple question is, do you have to buy anything along with it to load images from the camera to your computer so you can send them through E-mail and so I can post pictures of my engines on this site, or will the camera itself do that? Call me dumd, stupid, or out of date, but I dont know these things. My mind is set back to 1915 all the time.

Talking Re: off topic, digital camera

You need only buy a camera. They come with a cable and CD software for downloading. They usually include a complimentary photo editing CD to enhance your photos. To be honest, I have never used any of the stuff that came with my camera (Fuji Finepix 2600). My camera has a SmartMedia card that the photo file is generated on. I just pull the card out and install into a card reader that you can buy for about $35 or less. This way the card reader can be inserted into ANY computer running Windows CE, 2000, XP, etc and you don't have to monkey with the camera software. It's slick. I travel all over the world taking pictures of equipment for work and usually have to plug my reader into a computer other than mine. The camera generates a file with a .JPEG extension. You need only copy and paste the file folder of your choice. You don't need to invest a lot of money either. After my $400 camera got stolen out of my checked baggage by the airlines, I bought an identical factory refurbished for $90 on Ebay. You don't need 6 mega pixels, either, unless you are a professional doing poster size prints. Small file size is best for emailing and posting on here (like 10kb to 24kb). A guy doesn't need to buy more than 2 megapixels to get really great photos. Hope this helps! Dave

If you need more help, just let me know and I will walk you through it. Easy.

I still have to go East and have you show me the GOOD stuff.
