Default What exactly does high resolution do?

Besides give big pics does it have clarity in pics too? My camera doesn't have a focus on it.

Your camera doesn't have a focus? How many megapixels does it have? How much zoom? Optical zoom is better than digital zoom. You should be able to focus with any camera. You probably have an auto focus feature or something.

High resolution makes bigger pics, but they are better quality. There are more pixels in them and provide better clarity.

This camera is so small that it doesn't say how many pixels it has.

Camera features:

Capable of recording images at VGA resolution
Auto exposure
Focus free
8MB internal memory

I think I know what you have. I used to a small camera called "ixla photo-easy DualCam 640." It said it was a 'digital camera,' but it took the worst pictures I've ever seen. Nothing was clear, everything was blurry, some pictures more than others. They double as a web-cam too. It was supposed to be focused on anything more than 3 feet away, but it didn't. I'm now saving up for a good $300 camera.

How do your pictures look with your camera?

Ok, that'* a bit blurry. You must have a similar kind of camera. And you don't have an LCD screen on the back, right (a true LCD that shows the picture you're taking)? Mine said it had an 'LCD exposure counter' but it was like 1/2" long.

no LCD at all. I have to be on the computer to see what pics I have taken. This sucks. I see why ppl get the expensive cameras now.

I doubt you can. If it'* a camera like mine was, it'* just a 'starter' camera. Not like a true digital where you can buy 16-256MB memory cards for.
