Cheap

  • Excerpt: I picked this camera up for my son for Christmas and thought that I was getting a good deal on it because of the 5.1 mp the 4x digital zoom the video feature and so on. Boy was I wrong. The display screen does not even show what you are aiming at in the house. I guess you have to be in really good light in order for that display screen to pick up. I pointed it at the Christmas tree and the only thing that I was able to see on the display screen were the lights.

Not worth buying. Hard to use, bad quality photos

  • Excerpt: I bought this camera for my seven year old for Christmas, and I'm wishing that I had made another choice.  My primary reason for buying this camera was that it was inexpensive (about $50).  I didn't want to spend a lot because I was afraid that my daughter might not be ready for a camera and might damage it.  Unfortunately, this is a case of getting what you pay for.

  • Excerpt: I was bought this camera as a cheap little accesory to take along to the stables. I asked people to take photos of me riding my horse and everyone said they had problems working it, and all but one of the photos turned out blurry and unprofessional. I might as well have taken photos using a pebble. After it's long day of work , the camera need charging up, and I did so. After a day of charging (It was definitely on charge) the camera would no longer turn on.

cheap camera

  • Excerpt: This camera is cheap with below average performance. Its battery life sucks. The battery drain out after every few pics. the imgae qualityis also not that good. This camera can only be used as a child's toy, where children can experience photography and its cheap so even if it breaks, parents don't need to worry. The comapny can atleast improve upon its qualitya little bit.

Many other better cameras are out there.

  • Summary: This camera is pretty much useless to me. Cannot be used for video as there is no sound. It might zoom 8x, a great feature, but you have to hold your hands REEEEEEEALLY steady or it will be blurry. I have been wanting to throw this camera out, and now that I've been asked to write a review, I am doing that. I bought it used, didn't spend a ton of money, and feel like a lesson is learned here.

  • Summary: I bought this camera to have so I can back up my "fishermans" tales!! lol.. And just right for all that. Just a simple easy camera. U will need a mem card. no storage at all on camera itself. It would be nice if they simply made a point and shoot camera that was like and worked like a regular 35mm film camera Takes pics holds 24 photos and has flash who needs more it's a camera not a camcorder or cell phone!!

  • Excerpt: Despite the rise in popularity in recent years of the camera phone, and its consequent shouldering out of much of the lower end of the digital camera market place, there is still enough of a demand for simple, cheap digital cameras for the Argos catalogue shop in the United …

  • Summary: I bought this for a 10 year old who wanted his own camera. Easy to use and learn. Just the basic options for shooting modes makes it a great starter camera.

ViviCam 5018

hintergarten, Ebay
5 January 2010
  • Summary: It's a very neat, handy camera, easy to use, easy to take anywhere. It has an 8x electronic zoom (and none of those battery-draining mech. zooms). It includes a 2GB memory card (it doesn't take pictures without). A 10 or 12 MP camera would probably be more up-to-date, but 5.1 MP is excellent for what I need the camera and for the price I paid. It takes very clear pictures outside, portraits and indoor, day and night.
