    Yep, match stick ones have to have CMOS CCDs becuase they are just a simple chip where as proper CCDs involve quite complex electronics. I proper CCD won't fit in a match stick size camera hence they are all quite grainy.

    You should be able to get match stick ones that are the same quality as phone cameras though.
    So I'll find one that has...CMOS CCD. I don't really know what it is..but I shall find that!

    Thanks for your help.

    It's all so complicated, is there a more simple way? lol.

    CMOS CCDs? Are they only used on the REALLY **** ones?

    I guess quality is a lot more than resolution... my Kodak camera makes colours look really good which is great.

    Poor Gemsy's getting all upset because this whole camera thing is so complicated for her.

    Well CMOS ones are not the best quality and but all small ones have one. Only proper camera shops will tell what type of CCD it has.

    You might be better of going to Jessops and asking to see sample pictures on the smaller camera's they have. I'm sure they will have some half decent small ones for less than £60.

    Shush lol. I don't like all technology things - I'm good at IT, but I don't like all this CMOS stuff, and chips etc. It's not my thing.

    The trouble with going in shops is they try and persuade you to buy thie product, and it's pressurising. I like the internet but there's a lack of information.

    Sorry I for giving you all this electronic computer science geek speech. You don't really need to know any of that. I am not one known for explaining things in the simplest terms.

    But I think you get the idea now.

    Mine came with an 8MB memory card but I have upgraded it to a 32mb one. You can buy 32mb ones for around £10 now.

    With the standard 8MB card you can really only store 16 good quality pictures or 32 VGA standard ones.

    You can get 64 good quality images with the 32MB card.

    Those *questionable software* *(same sort as yours) that I have are all in zip disks, a bit expensive I know, but you get loads of cheap ones in ebay. Maybe you should consider the same thing.
