I disagree with this. In the first place, the Kodak cameras, which use the CompactFlash memory card, can hold a great many more photos without having to juggle disks which, in the field, is a great thing. Second, the newer cameras have a USB port, which makes hookup and download easier and faster. Better still, though, I bought a SanDisk CompactFlash card reader (USB version) for about $55 at Office Depot. I just keep this small device hooked up to the computer at all times, then simply insert the card I want to read when necessary. The computer "sees" the reader as simply another disk drive, so to download, I just drag and drop the photo image icons wherever. I think the Kodak cameras are the most reliable and affordable of the bunch. I recommend them highly, along with the SanDisk card reader. -----Original Message----- From: Rick Burch [mailto:rburch(--nospam--at)conterra.com] Sent: Monday, December 13, 1999 7:29 PM To: seaint(--nospam--at)seaint.org Subject: Re: Digital Camera James Lin wrote: > > Can anyone recommend the digital camera (name & model) > to be used in the construction field. > > Thanks in advance, > > James Lin > IDS, Inc. > My only comment is to recommend that you get a model that stores the pictures on a standard floppy disk. We have a Kodak model in our office that uses some other type card for memory. It is a real pain to have to get to the back of the computer to hook up the cable every time you want to download pictures. I guess we could buy extra cables so everyone could leave them hooked up, but we haven't yet.
