  • Summary: Seems a good product, does not have folding down eye pieces as described but this no problem for me , case is a bit of a tight fit for folded binoculars but not a big problem. Lens and focus system both seem good. Overall good product bearing in mind the cost .

  • Excerpt: I worked in a well known camera shop for over six months, and these used to be our best selling camera's and I'll tell you what I have got no idea why. I bought myself one and as soon as I started using it on a regular basis, and not just demonstrating to customers. I was utterly disapointed, the camera is very slow and the batteries always run out very quickly, turning on the flash makes the camera more a less die on you.
  • Pros: easy to use
  • Cons: very slow

Value for money!!!

  • Summary: I brought this 5 megapixel camera at a rather low price, and was suprised at how much it could actually do. Its perfect for an student or nature lover due to its small size, as it can easily slip in your pocket while your out and about. Its an attractive product and very simple to use. The L.C.D screen is very large considering that it is a rather small camera.

  • Summary: A stylish, cute camera -in fact probably the best eye candy camera you can get! Easy to use, simple camera. Lighting should not be a problem -may need more 'EV' in the dark.

  • Excerpt: as someone who isnt really into cameras i just wanted a fairly cheap & basic machine. the praktica dc5 slim certainly fits the bill on both counts but i still cant help but feel a little disappointed with its overall performance. true the size of it is brilliant, it really is a pocket sized camera and the size of the monitor is fantastic. on the downside is the amount of batteries it goes through.
  • Pros: pocket sized .  large monitor
  • Cons: picture quality .  uses aaa batteries

  • Summary: for the price of this camera you cant really go wrong. although the time to look at your pictures can take a while and is sometimes a little annoying the pictures are good when printed out.

Slightly disappointed

  • Excerpt: I bought this camera thinking that all digital cameras with a 5 mega pixel image sensor would produce pretty much the same quality pictures. Turns out I was wrong. I was really disapointed when I first started to use the camera and could only find instructions for a limited number of operations within the booklet, it seemed to be missing some major directions on usage.
  • Pros: slim, lightweight and stylish design
  • Cons: Poor picture quality, clarity of instructions

  • Excerpt: The Praktica DC Slim 5 has a lot of features for the price. I got one for Christmas and I only asked for a cheap basic digital camera so when I opened the DC Slim I was pleasantly surprised! The 5.1 megapixels are great for good quality photos, and the movie mode is handy too. I've had a lot of fun with that although the sound quality is very poor and you have to be shouting to be heard if you are more that a couple of metres from the camera!
  • Pros: Slim, light and stylish .  Also a lot of megapixels for the price .
  • Cons: Frequently blurred images and flash is sometimes too bright or too dim
