|What digital cameras connect to a Windows XP|
The majority of them will - check the requirements on the box.
Is it via a USB cord? Usually, yes.
Do such cameras usually come w/ a USB cord? Yes.
Please list a few that connect and transfer photos
w/out(!), and w/, additional software. If you don't want to use any bundled software then the easiest way to transfer the photos is to use a memory card eader rather than the USB connection.
I want to show, instead of describe, what shape the sofa
is in. Therefore, I --assume-- I will not need to
edit photos. You may want to crop the photo, but otherwise no, you are best to leave it as it is.
Is editing photos the purpose of additional software? Generally speaking, yes.
A tiny internet photo is little better than no photo. Do the cheap
cameras allow 3/4/5 sizes of photos? No, but photo editing software can be used to resize photos.
Is it easier to post a photo on an internet page, include it in the body of an email, or
attach it as a file to email? Attaching or inserting into an email is easiest, posting on a webpage depends on what the webpage is, who controls it etc.
About how many gb or mb will these cameras hold? Depends on the size of the memory card supplied or that you buy.
Easily removeable camera memory devices. Most cameras have removeable memory.
Are they --all-- flash? Are they --all-- cards? SD cards are probably the most popular & easiest to obtain.
What are the physical sizes / capacity ranges of compact, sticks, sd, sdhc, & micro? You'll have to Google the physical sizes of each card-type, but it makes no difference to you, the end user. Easily available & economic capacities range from 1Gb up to 32Gb as a general guide though capacities are increasing all of the time
What is meant by class? The transfer speed of the card, the higher the class, the better the possible speed, though you would need a compatible camera to take advantage of it.
Are these cards anything like PCMCIA type 1, 2, or 3? No.
What do I need to know about converters/adapters/card readers? What do you want to know? (I can't believe I just asked that.....)
Thanks for --hopefully-- getting me off to a good start. Thank you for --any-- help,
or leads to help.
