Summary: With only two buttons to contend with and a miniature display screen, you better have good eyesight and good with a multifunction button. The unit will fit in any small shirt pocket and yet is rugged. There is no preview display but I still have fun with it!! I Like-Love it! For $20+ (US Dollars) you can't go wrong. I happen to have a spare 128 meg SDRAM card and the unit works great with it!
Summary: This is an interesting toy camera. I got it just to play around. It works and is fun but uses far too much battery power. You have to replace the battery practically every time you shoot a bunch of images. Maybe 50 shots or so and a dead battery. Really a shame as otherwise it would be fun and cute, kind of like a digital Lomo. I never use it now because I'm not going to waste so much on batteries.
cult pictures only found in much more expensive cameras

Summary: This camera takes unique pictures people search far and wide for cameras with this character of pictures and still don't find them. Lomo comes to mind. With the exception of the lousy battery life this is a winner. There are battery off mods found on the internet. I intend to build an external battery box for mine. Use rechargeables and carry extras. Don't put the battery in until you are ready to shoot.
Summary: The people dissing this camera don't get it. It's not supposed to be a "good" camera in the conventional meaning of "good". And anyway, how could it be with this price point? The VQ1005 is the digital equivalent of a Holga: it's primitive, has virtually no exposure controls, a wavy plastic lens and it takes gorgeous photos that have a unique ethereal quality. Fans of lo-fi photography (or Lomo), buy this camera!
Summary: As a Digital Camera, this is a joke, When you look at a digital camera you expect certain features. This camera? has none. The only digital feature is the fact that it doesn't use film I would not use this camera? for love nor money.
