    Default Help me pick a camera for ebay.

    First I would like to say, I am new to the forums and am happy to be a part of it.

    I am looking for a fairly cheap camera to use for taking pictures of products to sell on forums. ebay, etc. I'm hoping to get some experience with backgrounds and things of that nature and want to have some decent looking photographs of my merchandise. I'm hoping to spend around 100 dollars.

    I just simply want a cheap camera that takes decent pictures. I don't need anything too special. Hopefully its a model with some reviews that I can check out and samples of photographs would be almost a necessity for me.

    Thanks everyone.

    $100 is a very low price for a decent camera. Fortunately there are a few good ones on the market at around that price. You'll want a camera with a CMOS sensor, which generally takes better pictures in low light, without a flash, than the older CCD sensors. Some good cameras with CMOS sensors that are around your price point are the Samsung WB250F (also has a long 18x optical zoom - a very good buy for about $120 online), the Sony WX80 (8x optical zoom, about $120), the Canon Elph 100 (4x zoom, about $100), the Nikon S6500 (12x zoom, about $130) and the Nikon S5200 (6x zoom, about $100). My recommendations would be in the above order, starting with the Samsung and ending with the Nikon S5200).
    Here are some sample images:
