Oregon Scientific DS 6618 0.31 Megapixel Pocket Camera
28 September 2008
Summary: This is my 11th camera of this type. I love these & I get fantastic results from them. Their best features are their size, credit card sized, and the fact that they have a rechargeable battery. I carry one with me all the time so if I see anything I like or anything odd, I shoot it. The down side is that they break very easily, out of 11 cameras this will be the only working one.
Summary: Might be an ok camera EXCEPT for the fact that you CANNOT change the battery once it wears out and won't take a charge. THIS MAKES IT A "THROW-AWAY" CAMERA, a PRETTY EXPENSIVE disposable camera. I wish somebody had told me this before I wasted my time and money. No matter how good the pictures are, if you can't get or keep power to the unit, it's useless! ALL of these WILL end up in the trash at some point. Be sure to check if the battery can be replaced AND by what.
Summary: I had a similar problem as a previous reviewer: my rechargeable battery petered out a few DAYS after the warranty ran out. Luckily, after a ridiculous dance with customer service, they sent me another one. Within a year, the new one would not hold a charge either. The pictures are really not very good - they're actually worse than my camera phone!
Oregon Scientific DS 66180.31 is not worth the money!

Summary: This camera is horrible! Do not waste your money! It takes hours to charge and after 5 pictures the battery is gone again! How frustrating! Plus, taking the picture is akward. You have to aim a little above the object to get it all in the picture! Buy another camera!
Summary: I bought this camera because the price was right. Obviously you're not getting a quality camera, but what you will get is a great camera for kids to begin learning about photography. Some of the pros: *Size *You never have to replace the battery...just plug it into the USB port and it recharges.
Summary: This is a great little camera, and I've attempted to upload 10 colorful photos so you can see the wonderful job it does. The ideal shooting situation for this camera is OUTDOORS, SUNNY DAY. You also must get used to having a steady hand. That means when you depress the shutter, you need to really concentrate on keeping your hand still--it's easy to inadvertantly move the camera at that precise moment, so just try and be aware of that.
