One of the most important factors in determining the outcome of your eBay auction is how your photos look to potential bidders. I think it is best to have a separate camera just for eBay, it just makes life much easier. If you want to spend a lot of money on a digital camera use that camera as your personal camera. You do not need to spend a lot on a digital camera for eBay use. My recommendation is the Nikon Coolpix 4500. I love this camera. The key feature is the swiveling frame, which makes taking a shot at any angle very easy. The close up photos which are very important come out excellent. The Nikon Coolpix 4500 used on eBay can be purchased for around $150.00 with extras included. If you have any other eBay camera suggestions feel free to post and let us know what you like about it.
