Let's Make Robots!

Do you have access o a cheap digital camera that I can get?

Hi all,

I had one of them extremely poor digital cameras, the kind that is almost given away for free.

I zapped it (with it's owm flash) - and I need a new one like NOW for a new robot I am planning.

I thought I could get one at any shop that sells cheap junk.. but aparently those days are over?!

My question is:

Would you have an old digital camera laying around that you are no longer using, or can you in your country still get them cheap cameras and would you help me by buying one and send it?

I'd really appreciate it, perhaps you would be interested in my measure-thingey (My wife gave me a new one)

Specs are irelevant, it does not need to have a flash, as long as it can take pictures "on it's own", that is not as a webcam only, but as a stand alone picture-taking device.

The only camera I have managed to find is this:


- But that is just too ugly to be a prominent part of my robot :D I need it to be black, silver, grey, you know, look like a "camera", or at least a web-cam.. and not like well. a piece of cyan plastic-thingey :) (I ust know that if I put that on my robot, it will irritate me all the time how non-camera that looks)

Hexapod robot IC : tracks faces, takes pictures, and posts them to website.
Just wow.
What the hell is going on, stuff is dissapearing and multipliying. Did I program this page?
I think we are seeing the side effect of everyones ability to edit own stuff :)
Try editing one of your own responses after someone responded to that. It's locked.

Just to clear up any misunderstandings. I will, of course, pay for the camera & any posting etc!




Yes & no, to your question.. I am not 100% sure what I'll go for in the end, depends on the time I get etc. But Yes, for sure a part of what I have in mind is a robot taking pictures :)

Huh? When I wrote the above there was another poost than "oops"? :)

I decided that this was not the correct place to post that. I'll do a new robot post of that later. I was curious tho because you said that God had taken all your spare time and given it to me. I thought it was a bit of a coincidence then that your looking for a camera for a bot when I'd only just finished making one.

As for the digital camera's, just a quick look on the net found this place. I suspect though that shipping and handling could out weigh the benifit.
