Summary: Do not expect to take photos to enter in shows with this tiny plastic camera. You will not be threatening Annie Leibovitz's livelihood, not with this camera anyway. That's not what it's for. I paid under ten dollars and knew to keep my expectations in check. I wanted something to put pictures on-line, such as to post with my reviews on Amazon or on Freecycle. Nothing fancy. I had another brand's low-end digital camera before this one and that one was garbage.
Summary: Sub-par, even taking in the fact that it's a fifteen-dollar VGA camera. The only feature that worked with any regularity was the webcam, as the custom (and difficult to install) software for the camera installs it as a regular Windows capture device, and uses a proprietary program to extract pictures taken. The modes were confusing, the pictures were always dark, and you never truly know if you've taken a picture (it beeps either way).
Summary: I was naive to assume this camera would be recognized as a plug & play storage device. Oddly enough, it is recognized as a webcam. It turns out the only way to upload pictures taken is through the included software, and as far as I can tell there's no way to just get the image w/o using one of their silly templates (where you can put the subject's face in a frame or a cut-out).
Summary: This camera is small, but fun. The only complaint is the one button that controls the functions is in a spot that is easy to accidentally depress. Most of the functions have a code that has to be deciphered with a supplied pamphlet, which means you need to keep up with that to continue to use the camera. The supplied tether is a nice length and convenient.
Summary: This was suppose to be a gift for my daughters birthday. It was very misleading in the description. It never stated it was a mini camera small enough to fit in the palm of my hand. I returned the product and it cost me more in the long run.
Summary: This camera is marketed & sold under a number of different brands & labels. I saw them at Walgreens just yesterday with a different brand. It's junk. Pure junk. I picked one up at Hastings a few months ago. The software didn't work and the manufacturer does not have a website at all. I found an older version of the software on driverguide.com and was able to get that to work. However, within a few days, the camera ceased to operate.
Summary: I got this as a first digital camera for my 11 yr old daughter,I figured for the price no matter how bad it was, it would get her used to using one. Well, I must say that the pictures are not great by any standards. You have to be in very good light and be very close to your subject to get a picture,BUT the software was worth every penny I spent!!!! We have had so much fun with it.
