HI, im looking for a really small camera that can be taken away from the computer and used (like a normal camera) can webcams be used like that? also i have an older computer with win95 and no USB card so it could work out quite expensive, anyone know something else i could use? i only need it to hold like 2-4 pictures at a time.

Dick Smith have some cheap little cameras...
see here..

It doesnt say that it is USB, so I assume that it is simply a Serial connection(most other cameras say USB).

not very good resolution, but yuo didnt mention what the camera was going to be used for.

I've got an Intel Pocket PC Camera which also doubles as a web cam and takes 20 second video clips. It's nice and little, comes in its own carry case and seems to hold plenty of photos - I've currently got two short video clips and 12 photos on it and it's not showing as full yet. The quality is ok as long as you don't want to blow them up too large. Price is around the $400 mark and seems to do the job.

Hi, you'd be suprised to know that you could actually get these Intel camera's for about $250 now. So if you want to know where to get it at this price, etc. post a reply.
