A fun toy but that's about all.

  • Excerpt: "...a slightly more expensive camera. The Sipix Blink doubles up as a webcam which can be fun, but again this only works in good lighting. After dark it is pointless even trying, even with artificial lighting unless it is really bright. You can also film short movies with this camera, although obviously they are of limited quality and length. Overall, I would say this is a fun toy for messing about with friends but nothing more. Do not buy it ...
  • Pros: Small, light, fun to mess around with .
  • Cons: Eats up batteries fast and takes poor quality photos .

Great first digital camera, a bit limited though

  • Excerpt: "This was my first digital camera and what I'd hoped to get out of it was something that I could just take a few fun snaps with that wouldn't get in the way. Nothing professional, just a toy that you could take everywhere with the option of using it as a webcam. I was initially amazed by the price given its uniqueness, though I did acknowledge that its features were a little limited. What's In The Box? When it arrived the initial challenge was ...
  • Pros: Cheap, compact, and very easy to use
  • Cons: Doesn't work without enough light !  !  Also the battery

Unquestionable value for money

  • Excerpt: "I bought by Blink Digital Camera shortly before my last holiday, and the pictures I came back with were just about as good as with my old traditional film camera that weighed seveal dozen times as much and was huge by comparison! I was absolutely stunned by the quality of the pictures I got. The 2 resolution settings are somewhat academic. The low-resolution pictures are not really very good, but when you can take 100 high-res, good quality pictures ...
  • Pros: pocket size, quality pictures, great value
  • Cons: Battery, battery, battery

  • Excerpt: "imagine the scene. you're out with the lads on a night out and in a club. that girl's in front of you. you give your camera to your mate and get him to take a photo as you snog her mouth off. only when you get back the stupid camera tells you there's no light. stylecam blink does not take pictures after 4pm. there's no sun. it doesn't do video (unless you use it as a webcam) and it really drinks batteries. there are two picture resolutions, hi ...
  • Pros: very candid if you know what i mean .
  • Cons: quality and focal length are a bit poor .

ONE FOR THE COMPUTER ILLITERATE.

3 April 2003
  • Excerpt: "Like many people i am not 'up' on the latest computer gadgets or have any knowledge whatsoever about the fact that certain digital cameras may be better than others due to fancy functions. What i can tell you about however is the practical side of things from a regular computer user who sends pictures to relatives via email. Now i bought this camera because it was cheap. I had no knowledge of functions or even how one worked but i was surprised ...
  • Pros: CHEAP, EASY TO USE & VERY COMPACT .
  • Cons: PICTURE QUALITY NOT OVERLY SHARP .

A definite maybe

  • Excerpt: "This camera is even smaller then you'd expect, fitting easily into a pocket and impressing anyone when it is pulled out. The picture quality is surprisingly good, in well lit situtations (a bit grainy and tends to blur at the edges, but hey this thing is tiny). In poorer light it will just not work. It holds about 40 photos at high quality (640x480), and twice that many at low quality (320x240). It functions as a decent web cam as well, and you ...
  • Pros: Tiny, works as a web cam
  • Cons: Can lose pictures, poor battery life

good things do come in small packages...

  • Excerpt: "...friend showed their tiny camera, Sipix styleCam. My first reaction was I had to get one of them for myself. As it is at such a bargain I snapped it in an instance, it is a cool digital camera which provides hours of fun due to the software provided. It does not look cheap or feel plastic in your hands and you can carry it whereever you go and take a photo spontaneously. The only gripes I have with it is the macro switch which when pressed you see ...
  • Pros: Its tiny, fits into your pocket discreetly, looks expensive and impresses anyone you show it to .  .  .
  • Cons: The macro switch is not very useful, if you remove the batteries you will lose the memory, no flash hence need good lighting

  • Excerpt: "...Ebay could hardly be justified! The Sipix Stylecam Blink resides at the bottom of a range of affordable cameras that Sipix produce, much like the L’espion is part of a range made by Digital Dreams. Ok, so I’d seen many good reviews on the L’espion, but only one on the Sipix. Why did I choose the lesser known model? A few reasons really, all pointed out to my by the GadgetShop man. Most importantly the resolution that the Blink offers is higher ...
  • Pros: Affordable, digital, good memory and resolution for the price .
  • Cons: CD was no good with me .

  • Excerpt: "This dinky device is barely bigger than a matchbox, slips into the pocket of all but the tightest trousers and means you can be ready within seconds to be snap happy. In addition, you can even turn it into a mini video camera or perch it on top of your computer for use as a webcam. The picture quality isn't great at the maximum resolution of 640x480 but the end results aren't that bad. This is especially when you take into account the fact that ...
  • Pros: Versatile, cheap and a handy standby camera
  • Cons: Software is a bit limited

Size doesnt matter

  • Excerpt: "I had been looking at digital cameras for some time now, and then noticed the new small cameras that were appearing. The first being the L'espion, then I saw this one. Comparing the two, both priced at £39.95. The Blink camera was better, despite being slightly bigger, measuring 5.5 x 5.5 x 1.2cm, you got better quality pictures and more of them. High quality: 640 x 480 pixels, 100 pictures stored in VGA. Low Quality: 320 x 240 pixels, 300 pictures ...
  • Pros: its tiny
  • Cons: its packaging
