Default Need inexpensive cam for web photos

Hi-
This is a very nice site!
I had a coolpix 3200 a few years ago and it was pretty nice but I lost the darn thing while skiing

I would like to get a replacement but I am not into a lot of gadgets. I'm hoping for clear shots, good zoom and movies. I take a lot of pictures of wooden toys for my website. I am fine with 3.0MP because I view the shots on my PC.

Should I pick up a (used $50range) ebay coolpix or is there an inexpensive low mpix camera that would be better.

PS most of the new cameras I see on the web have tons of nice features that I don't need.

Thanks!

All digital cameras these days have more than 3mp (other than kids cameras, webcams and phone cameras).

If money is very tight for you go for a camera refurbished by the manufacturer. Buying a used digital camera on Ebay is a risky proposition.

The Canon a480 sells for around $100 and is supposed to be a good entry-level camera. I'm only familiar with Canons.

Want a cheap camera?

Check the closeout bins at the various office supply chains (Staples, Office Depot, Office Max etc).

They are selling LAST years models. Like there is much of a difference between LAST year's and THIS year's camera models for your needs.
