Summary: Bought camera in 2001 for $200.00.I'm a beginer with digital cameras at the time.Works great and easy to use takes great pics!!Moved up to XP barely worked.Vista and windows 7 NOT A CHANCE!!!.Don't let anybody tell you differant.Great camera for windows 98 but with no upgrades to advanceA really bummer!!!!REALLY LIKED THAT OLD CAMERA !!!!Now just a useless piece of plastic.SAD!!!
Summary: The .8 megapixel is the loweat MP I have ever owned. To my surprise it takes good pictures no where as good as a 35mm or any of my 3 digital i currently own they are  a Kodak M883 [8.o mp]  a Kodak C753 [7.1 mp]  a Kodak M853 [8.1 mp] And I frogot a Sony Macivca FD- 200 [2.0 mp] The Polaroid does have a better picture than a Olympus D-555 6.0mp I use to have. Its picture is sharper than the oly. 6.0mp and the software is better than Olympus software also.
Summary: The software that came with it crashed my new computer with XP and so I had to partition 7GB of a 40GB hard drive. I was told by the seller that the software was compatible with XP and also by polaroid. It was not true !!! This was about 2 yrs ago. At the time I was lucky enough to have a MFC copier with a card reader so that is what I use to transfer my pictures to my computer. The camera goes thru batteries fast.
Summary: I have had this camera for 5 years ,am or was a novice , just thought it looked good . I can`t see the image in the lcd finder when out doors , . I find this camera is not user friendly , has several flaws is not for a novice .
Summary: Had the camera for a few years, and bought a new computer with and XP Windows system. Polaroid said couldn't use the USB cable and would need to purchase a compact flash card of 32 mb size. After several phone calls to tech support and many hours, I still have no resolution to how I can use this camera with the new computer. Unable to read the flash card from the camera.
Summary: This is a nice entry level point and shoot camera. I recommend this for someone who wants to start out in digital photography. I do recommend the 48MB CF card, and a professional battery pack. It will go through it's 4 AA's in about 30 minutes, high current draw. But it takes nice photos, and it's nearly indestructible too. In order to use the connection software(serial RS-232) you will need Windows 95+, and use EPP mode.
Summary: I bought this camera because at the time it was a decent price and it looked good. Here is what I ended up finding out: Pros: Decent pictures and a good size LCD screen. Cons: Can't use it for long periods without replacing the 4 AA's. There is no zoom. Uploads are slow to your computer since there's no USB. Only holds 24 photos without an extra memory card. Changing the flash for indoor/outdoor is hard to figure out.
Summary: Have had this camera since last xmas. Camera for the price paid and what it is at today is totally unacceptable. NO ZOOM, 0.8 megapixels, grainy photos even at high settings, low grade CCD that displays very slow, battery life subpar, 20 second delay between shots, no USB, low-tech power switch, no lens cover, inferior viewfinder that takes in no light very hard to see thru....
Summary: i recieved the pdc 700 for xmas a year or so ago and i'm very happy with it. the camera is simple to use, the led is nice (although don't use it for viewfinding unless you want to 'run dry' batteries and have a delay for your pictures), and the images that it produces are reasonably good quality. perfect for web use, and produces nice small prints on my epson stylus c40s inkjet on photo paper.
Summary: (...) It is an ideal camera for starting into digital photography. It has all the features that you might want except, perhaps, for a Red Eye Reduction. In fact, on digital photography it is not Red but White, so it is very hard to correct with any available software. Ask the user not to look at the camera. It helps.
