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 .
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
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Summary: Firstly let me start by saying for the price it's a nice, fun easy to use camera which gives good images for emailing, messing about with and for internet sites.. But i was greatly disapointed with mine because the first time i wanted to use the camera for real was when we went to a party. I took some great snaps.. BUT by the time i got home the images deleted them selfs from the camera apart from 3 which when uploaded to the computer were corrupt.
Summary: The Sipix Blink is a cheap method digital photography. At 40 quid it is decent value for money but the majority of photos you take won?t rival those of a disposable camera . The camera comes with 8MB of onboard memory (you can?t add more) which is enough to store around 100 640x480 images. There is also the option to take lower resolution images . The Blink is powered by a single AAA battery but it eats through these at a phenomenal rate. A word of warning ?
Pros: tiny, cheap, bundled software
Cons: no flash, blurred images, battery consumption
Sipix Stylecam Blink: tiny, good fun but unreliable

Summary: It is small and very convenient - you can keep it with you at all times without it filling a pocket. It stores enough snaps in its memory for it to be useful. Photo quality isn't great but perfectly acceptable for a camera of this price/type. However there are some serious drawbacks: 1. It is unable to take pictures in anything than other than very bright conditions. 2.

Summary: Camera Specs The first thing that struck me about this camera was it's diminutive size. The second thing that struck me were shards of packaging, as I failed to get through the thick protective plastic without injury. The camera slips quite comfortably into the pocket-size category by being almost exactly the same height and width as the narrowest edge of a credit card. And it's slimmer than a deck of cards, so should even fit into 'tight-fit' pockets.
