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

  • 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 .

  • 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

  • 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 .

Strike a Light

  • 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

BLINK and you'll miss it

  • Excerpt: "...The small orange and blue SiPix logo is located in the bottom right corner. The shutter button is positioned in the middle on top of the camera, which is designed very ergonomically. It feels as though it is in the right place and it is not awkward to press. The viewfinder gives a brilliant idea of what your picture will look like and what you are aiming at. The L’espion view finder was only a rough give and gave no indication of how much fitted ...
  • Pros: Small, light weight, cheap, fun to use .
  • Cons: Not brilliant quality pictures compared to proper digital cameras .  Time delay due to focus .

Digi- & WebCam für 20 €

  • Summary: SiPix StyleCam CAMeleon Als ich letztens so durch Saturn schlenderte viel mir die SiPix StyleCam CAMeleon auf, es handelt sich um eine sehr kleine Kamera, die mit 3 verschiedenen Frontfarben ausgeliefert wird. Blau, Grau und Bronce sind die steckbaren Platikteile die sich problemlos auswechseln lassen. Der Preis von 20 Euro hatte mich dazu verleitet mir diese Kamera genauer anzusehen.
  • Pros: sehr klein, als WebCam nutzbar
  • Cons: man sollte keine Spitzenbilder erwarten

Klein, günstig & befriedigend

  • Summary: Ich habe mir die kleine Camera hauptsächlich angeschafft um damit Waren zu fotografieren, die ich im Internet versteigern möchte und dazu ist sie gut geeignet. Das kleine Objektiv lässt allerdings nur wenig Licht rein, so das die Räume wirklich hell erleuchtet sein müssen um ein aktzeptables Ergebnis zu bekommen. Im freien, bei Sonnenlicht, sind die Fotos ebenfalls von befriedigender Qualität.
  • Pros: Sparknüller für kleine Dienste z . B .  Fotos für Internetauktionen
  • Cons: Für Fotos zum Druck etc .  eher nicht geeignet
