  • Excerpt: "...Bayer ripped me off, but Jenoptik certainly have ripped off everybody to ever purchase one. Yes it is a nifty little gadget, it has many functions and even a flash, which not all small digital cams have, BUT and a big BUT, it is extremely difficult to load the software for it on to a lap top. My lap top doesn't have a floppy drive and the only thing i received with the camera was two floppy discs and a minidisk, none of which work on my lap ...
  • Pros: Very Small .  .  .  .  .

  • Excerpt: "I recently bought a printer from The Computer World and bundled up in the package was this free digital camera. I had never used a digital camera before and perhaps I expected too much of this camera as I believed it would take a picture similar in quality to a normal cheap film loading camera. Style The camera is'nt particulary stylish but looks ok, though the coloured perspex on the front does'nt look so great close up. It does feel a little ...
  • Pros: Small, light, easy to use, good software
  • Cons: very poor picture quality

Took it back and had it replaced with another one.....by this time I had upgraded to XP.

Also the ...

Clear Pictures For A Small Thing

12 June 2003
  • Excerpt: "...a great idea and the Jenoptik 350 was the one I chose because it had a great offer on it and also looked good. One thing I liked about this camera was the appearance, for one it was small and it was silver. In the offer I paid about £80, my friend paid £120 but didn't search well enough. By paying £80 I got a case and tripod with the camera so it was good enough. The camera has a handle so you can hold it or put it round your wrist. It is a nice ...
  • Pros: clear photos, good price, nice appearance
  • Cons: flap , batteries used up quick

24 May 2003
  • Excerpt: "This camera was my first ever digital camera. I had high expectations and was looking forward to getting some quality pictures. Initially the camera was easy to work and I found it quite enjoyable to use. As time progressed , I found that the batteries were nearly dead and it kept switching itself off at every opportunity, even though batteries were changed and instructions followed to the "T" problems were sporadic and annoying. The quality of ...
  • Pros: easy to use and doesn't take much time to get the hang of it .  Not too expensive .
  • Cons: Sucks power out of normal AA batteries and can be very unreliable meaning some uncaptured moments .

It's about the size of a credit card. It fits easily in to the palm of your hand. The camera comes with a carry case too. As well as been a digital camera, it is also a web cam too. WE have not tried this out yet though. You get a stand for your camera to go on for when using it as a web cam. YOu ...
