Summary: I am a school teacher. This is my 3rd toshiba camera. It is a great value for the price. It is old and heavy. It takes great pictures w/o a flash. It is remote capable. It is a tank of a camera. I and my students have abused it and it continues to work when others fail. I am on my 3rd because I lost one and one was stolen. I wish toshiba still made digital cameras.
Summary: I actually purchased the PDR-3330 (3.1 MP) back in January 2004. It lasted through college and I continue to use it to this day! I don't know how many times I've dropped it, yet it's continued to work just fine - even after quite a few hits to the lens housing! Just got some crystal clear pictures of the aftereffects of the ice storm yesterday. I continue to be amazed at the quality of some of the pictures I get.
Summary: this is good camera for the most part. just that at times there's a slight lag in pressing the button and the picture being taken...also the picture comes out as if you were shaking sometimes...but the 3 sec timer and other features are excellent..
Summary: I bought this camera I believe 3 years ago and have been satisified with it. I bought it to take on trips not wanting to hassle with 35mm cameras and film. It takes great pictures in the daylight, nightime not so much but that is common with most digital photography. The camera does drain the batteries quickly but using rechargable batteries is a must with most digital cameras...turning off the digital display during photography does help this.
Summary: I had always used a manual 35mm camera, and wanted to get into digital but did not want my first digital camera to be a really expensive one (since I am learning the digital side and have not yet built enough knowledge to know exactly what I will need in my final, expensive camera yet). I chose this camera based on its price, megapixel count, and ability to switch to a full manual mode. After getting three sets of NiMH batteries and a charger, I have been well satisfied.
Summary: I desperately needed a new digital camera and for the price I jumped on this one. WIth a canon glass lens and decent firmware this camera does take great shots when the lighting and settings are synched. PROS: nice image quality, SSD cards are great, video is a nice bonus, menus are easy to use, has manual settings for experimenting, great power conservation.
