No.






Just about any real camera will (Canon, Sony, Fuji). But a few of the $29 stuff will not (and may not work with Vista either).

Ye most camera's are plug and play with OS X and just run on the drivers included in OS i believe.

I apologise if I seemed rude in the other thread.

No problem
When i found this site i book marked Mac Mini-- and thought that section was for general chat-- so when i posted this question i thought it was a fair question from someone who has had a Mini for 2-3 weeks-- i went to bed , and got up to see if there was any replies- and the post was gone- with no mention of it being moved -- so i went to the index -and right on top was Mac Mini --a place to discuss all things Mini--
well i thought that a digital Camera would be part of --all things Mini--- and being new , and some what stupid - i just thought my first post got erased for some reason -- so i reposted--

I'm the one who is sorry but i guess it's all part of paying your dues-- nothing was ment to get people mad -- for sure not you , you have heled me with a few questions (thank you)

If i could ask -- why not have a section for --Mac Mini's for dummies--
I really mean it , i have seen some new people posting very basic questions - if there was a section for us real dummies -- only people that would not get offended could go there to answer the real basic stuff

Again no offence was taken - it's all part of learning

thanks Rocky

I think the "Mac Mini's for dummies" forum your thinking about is pretty much covered in the New Users and Switchers category so I doubt the site admins will add another forum. Glad no offense was taken Smile

you could also get a card reader to read the memory cards, bypassing the need to actually plug the camera in.

We all are/were dummies at one time or another so the only stupid questions are the ones you don't ask.

Welcome to new world of Macs...

What kind of camera are you asking about - photo or video? What do you want to do with it on your Mini?

You will save money on batteries or save you from recharging.

You won't make any one mad on this forum mate. There all friendly folks around these parts. So just post away with any questions that you can't work out and some one is bound to have the answer. That's what forums are about learning and discussing new stuff.
If your looking for a cheap digital camera the Panasonic Lumix range is really good.

Rockysv...Welcome.
To answer your question about an easy to use digital camera. I suggest the Nikon cool pix line. Very easy point and shoot options with out breaking your pocket book. And they play nice with your Mac.

Rockysyv,

Hello and welcome, as Tony said about, the Nikon Coolpix are reasonably priced, easy to use and work well with iPhoto. I had one, I replaced it with an Olympus, will probably upgrade that in the future. My wife wanted something very small and the Olympus fit the bill. Just look around and see what fits your budget.

Once again, welcome to the Forum.
