Hmmm...I don't have a camera at the moment and all my old digi-pics got eaten when my hard drive blew up in October. (yes it really did fry. I need to pay like $1000 to get the data recovered but haven't yet because I have other priorities for that type of money.) That being the case, I haven't got any cage pictures right now, but I'll try to take one as soon as I can for you. In the meantime I can describe it...
Squeak (my female, syrian, short-haired hamster) lives in a 20gal aquarium with mesh top weighted down at the corners and in the center by laying paint sticks out over the top in strategic locations (there are 3...unused of course) and then putting old insulators on top of them, 6 all together. When I was younger we used a patio block, but those are rather heavy.
Inside is carefresh bedding, a puzzle playground, a nice wooden block house (largely unused except as a chew-toy), a plastic wheel which is solid on the running part and on the inside side, and a hanging waterbottle. She also has a small blue food dish which she has fun tipping over when she doesn't get her favorite treats.
She likes to build large nests that take up about 1/3 of the tank, which is why I switched from a 10gal to a 20gal. My previous female, Lightfoot (may she rest in peace) did that too and I felt like she had no space. At the moment I'm wondering if it's just a girl thing since none of my male hamsters ever did that. But I digress.
I usually shred up some tissue to help her with nesting material and also those carnival of crinkles she gets sometimes. She likes those. I line the botton of the cage with papertowels to help make it a little easier to clean, and it's not so bad for her to chew if that's what she decides to do either. ^^
I'll work on pictures. I know it's hard to imagine from description.
