Default digital camera

I'm a rural cabinetmaker in Sewanee, TN between Chattanooga and Nashville who builds high end millwork cabinets. I want a digital camera but am not a "techie" or a camera man so I am confused by all the features available. I intentions are to post pictures/ video? on a website, send via internet or download to floppy to mail and to simply record our work.

I will be shooting mostly interiors. Cabinets are often difficult to shoot so I think I want wide angle capability although this may not be necessary. I need something easy to use -especially download. I like the features of the Sony Mavica with its floppy disk memory but is there something out there that would do the same job with a smaller body and less expensive? This is an occasional use item but when I buy one I want to have one worth buying. I also like the ability to shoot video- about 10 seconds seems typical.

Appreciate all recommendations not just on camera but also on who to buy from. I would like to buy locally if possible but internet OK too. Thanks, John

I would go with Olympus C5050, the moveable lcd should help with making those difficult shots. It also is best for low light condigitons and I suspect the inside of cabinets may present this problem. The Sony with floppy disk technology is out of date. The C5050 connects via usb cable or you can purchase a card reader. Either of these methods make for fast and convinent downloading.
