Should Have Thought Twice About Buying A Used Camera
2 February 2011
Summary: I happen to own a Insignia NS-DSC10 10 Megapixel Digital Camera that I bought used off of ebay; I haven't had any trouble with it. So, when I decided to buy my brother a digital camera, I thought 'well, why not buy him a used camera off of ebay; it will save money'. Well, the used camera I bought for him was sold by these ebay vendors in CANADA, and it went beserk after he had taken nine pictures with it.
Summary: I really like this camera. It's easy to use and carry around. I would have given it an excellent all the way around....except last night the shutter wouldn't close and the auto focus won't go back in . I didn't drop it or anything like that. I was actually sitting in a chair and taking pictures. ...then it just stopped taking pictures....oh well, since I really do like it, I'll take it into a camera shop to get it fixed.
Summary: The DSC10 is a great little camera. It's size makes it perfect for daily carry in a shirt pocket or front pant pocket. It's ergonomically user friendly, has a wide range of settings for any shot imaginable and does great when using the flash. The automatic settings offered are great for quick shots. The zoom feature is easy to use and the Macro setting renders beautiful close ups. Also, the ability to choose your MP and quality settings is helpful when memory is limited.
Summary: I bought this camera refurbished so I don't if there would be any difference if it were right out of the box. I am no professional photographer, so it fit the basic need I had for a camera at a price I could justify spending. It is a little slow, and has a blue streak across the picture every once in a while, which is not the result of a dirty lens.
Summary: The camera was only ten dollars. So you get what you pay for. The camera takes great pictures just takes forever to come into focus. You have to hold the button down for about five seconds and keep the camera still in order to get a good picture.
Summary: It is a good camera with many features built in. Price is right. Uses 2 AA batteries (3V). Both SD and SDHC memory cards can be used with the camera. This camera can also be used as a camcorder. Things that I dont like: Battery problem - Rechargeable batteries most of them are 1.2V and with two of them gives only 2.4V. So if we use them with the camera it discharges fast, thereby needing frequent recharge. The quality is not good to use as a camcorder.
Summary: I like my Insigina camera because you cant find Items like that, Remanufactured, that is and maybe off brands at the retail stores in this region at least. It is extremely frustrating to have to be spoon fed what limited inventory and brands the mega stores have. This camera is almost exactly what I was looking for and could'nt find for weeks at a reasonable price. I looked on ebay and in two days I had what I needed.
