The Canon Power Shot A720is would be an excellent choice in a lower priced camera. The camera has a very large image display, eight megapixels and optical zoom. It is priced at $199 at most stores.

The cameras that I have owned were supplied with a software CD and an instruction manual that covers most of what you need to know. A cable is usually supplied that allows you to connect the camera to the computer USB port for photo download. Most computers have that connection on the front for easy access. I have an inexpensive HP printer that has a slot for the memory card from my camera which is a little easier than using the cable. Inexpensive memory card readers are also available.
If you have any problems, ask about them on this site and you will always find someone available with the proper answer.

Rocco, I have an Inspiron 530s tower. Is that where i'd plug in the cable? Also, I have a Dell 305w printer. Please clarify and help me with this. You must think me an absolute fool. lol Lee p.s. I think the printer is wireless.

I searched the Dell Inspiron 530s and found a photo of the rear of the computer. You have four USB 2.0 ports there. The photo seems to show that they are in the lower right hand corner. This is where you plug in the camera cable. It doesn't matter which one you plug into. The other end of the cable has a smaller plug that fits the camera. Since the ports are at the rear you can leave the cable plugged in and bring the other end to a convenient location in front. A camera memory card reader would be a better setup. You could leave it plugged into the port and then insert the camera memory card into the reader. Plugging the cable directly into the camera will drain the camera batteries faster. I have seen the card readers listed for less than $15.00.
You should also check your printer manual to see if it has slots for reading camera memory cards.

I am getting up in years a little and have inherited my mothers shaky hands.
I have a Nikon F600, with image stabilization. I had to give away my coolpix 5000 because I couldn't hold the camara still.
One thing the F600 does allow me to do is, use flash or ISO settings.
For close-ups of your growies you might keep in mind that you will need a
good MICRO setting.
Most of the small dig. camaras are pretty good.
For fixing the photos for better resolution I use GOOGLE Picassa. It is a
free download from GOOGLE.
I use an Epson printer that has a port that I can plug my memory chip into and download.
Picassa will assist you in downloading.
Hope this helps.
Lonejack.
