    My experience of selling on ebay is that having any kind of digital photo of
    your product available is a massive bonus but the quality of the photo does
    not matter as much as the fact that you have it there.

    If that is all she want's it for I'd go for something pretty damn cheap. If
    she is interested in the photography and would like to use the camera for
    more general use as well and to learn more about photography then it is
    definitely worth spending a bit more.

    I look for an older model or factory refurb deal. Ebay might be a good place
    to start ;)

    My first digicam was the Fuji FinePix 1300, I think it's a great camera for
    what you want. eBay sounds like a good place to find it cheap.

    You may want to get one that has the macro function for taking close ups of
    some of the objects. Forget the digital zoom but if it has optical zoom it
    may be of some use.

    Don't forget Step #2. Troll through eBay and you will see a photo
    with about every listing, but 9 out of 10 of them will be dark, muddy,
    uncropped and unappealing. Whether it's Irfanview (free download) or
    some other photo program, teach the girl the basics of cropping and
    brightening up the photos.
