Excerpt: The Polaroid Photomax PDC 3350 ($299 list) is the largest and least expensive product in this roundup. But it has the look and feel of a cheap camera, with subpar performance, only a handful of features, and ho-hum image quality. The all-plastic silver body is roughly the size of a conventional 35-mm film camera, but its slim width lets you just barely slip it into a shirt pocket.
Conclusion: Overall I feel the Polaroid PDC3350 is a very good camera and is strictly ideal for the starters. It’s a great shoot and point camera with good image quality and very easy to use. I will be using the Polaroid PDC3350 to take images of future products at Modsynergy.com because of the excellent macro/optical zoom this camera has. The Polaroid PDC3350 has a problem of over exposing the flash and that allows the picture to turn out really bright.
Pros: Excellent construction, Fit and finish, Battery door is not flimsy, Excellent macro mode, Optical zoom, Lens, Good image quality, Uses 2 AA Batteries, TV-Out, Bundle
Cons: Shutter is a bit slow + slow onboard memory, Some color problems in some instances and overexposing of flash, Basic advances features, Some distortions at midday/night; massive graining at high ISO at midday
