Not Worth the Price

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.
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.
Summary: I remember when I first saw one of these - this was in the early 2000s, before every cell phone had a camera, and the idea that a camera could be this small was delightful. The smallest cameras available to the consumer were "disk" cameras (not counting the "Petal" cameras of the 1940s, that geishas...
Summary: I bought this camera for my 12 year old sister. I figured it would be a cool camera for her because of its size. When it arrived, I played around with it to make sure it worked and found that it took surprisingly great (for the price and megapixels) outdoor pictures.
Summary: Pros: -Very good outdoor shots (or indoor with natural light) -Incredibly small (I keep it in my wallet like a credit card) Cons: -Indoor shots had some off-color results on occasion -Low capacity, no card slot Overall: I do not regret getting this camera, but I would recommend buying the next model...
Summary: I got this camera from one of my dad's Malboro catalogs, and after about a year of use, it didn't want to work. I sent it back to Oregon Scientific, they told me it was defective, so they sent me another one.
Summary: My mom got this camera... wow a digital camera right? Wrong, not just any digital camera, but one the size of a credit card, and with the thickness of about 5 credit cards. To simply put: that is bloody small. But as in all things, when something is too good to be true, it often is.
