  • Excerpt: "I purchased this neat little camera from Maplin Electronics, for the sole purpose of taking pictures of items to be auctioned on eBay. Having had a bad experience with an ultra-cheap (and very nasty) mini camera, I decided to invest a little more cash in something more worthwhile, and the Vivicam 20 seemed to fit the bill.

  • Pros: Inexpensive, compact, good picture quality
  • Cons: Unpredictable focus

  • Pros: Compact .  Easy to carry .  Serves as a web cam as well as a digital camera .
  • Cons: Blurry pictures and low pixel count .  Poor indoor/action shots .

  • Excerpt: "This camera has very good value for money, is very easy to use and produces quality pictures for the price.The features are easy to use with a small digital screen to tell you what function you are using which could make this camera difficult to use if you are hard of sight. The symbols which are used are easy to understand and the buttons are easily used, the battery life is excellent, and the quality of picture is good too. The software that comes ...
  • Pros: Light, Small, Cheap, Easy to use
  • Cons: Flash seems to be too bright .
