Decent for outdoor simple pictures. Very decent price for a digital/PC camera.

  • Excerpt: Without a doubt the worst camera I have ever used. 30 quid is a small price for a camera, but if you are buying a useless camera, then why bother? Maybe, just maybe, the one I have is a dud. Let me tell you about mine. The picture quality is awful. I mean AWFUL. Every picture is a blurred or distorted mess. Remember the first 1mp mobile phone cameras? Using the flash means that you have a white rectangle for a photo, maybe with a flicker of an outline.

  • Excerpt: i must have a different camera to some of the others on here.my only problem is that the battery life is short.i take the batteries out every time its not in use even on holiday so thats a pain.otherwise the quality of the pictures have been excellent.ive had them printed at boots,jessops,klick,etc and all been excellent quality.as i have tendency to leave cameras on buses and in taxis its priced so that you dont have a heart attack.

  • Excerpt: SImply do not buy this camera. We had it a year and it fails on it's basic premise, that of taking pictures when you press the button. I bought it because my wife wanted a digital camera which when you press the button it simply takes a picture. With many cameras they faff around so much before the shot while they try to get focus and try to get exposure right.
  • Pros: Small & cute and SD card slot
  • Cons: The pictures !  !  !

  • Excerpt: I bought this camera for my young daughter for her birthday and we were VERY disappointed with it. 1) it gets through AAA batteries very quickly AND it won't work properly unless they are almost new. (it never works when you need it). 2) I could not get the software to work with the camera. I gave up and bought a USB card reader instead. 3) I am not at all impressed with the picture quality.

  • Excerpt: I bought this camera because I wanted to take some pictures to put some items up for auction on ebay. Its nice and light, and easy to use but the sad thing is the amount of pictures it takes! On top quality, which is five megapixels, you can only take two pictures. This means that it really isnt worth taking out of the house on days out because of course you need to take many more pictures than that at say, a day out at the seaside, particularly if you have pets or...
  • Pros: Small light and easy to use
  • Cons: Pitiful amount of photos before memory is full

Poor camera, not worth the money

  • Excerpt: I got this camera when my other one was left on a bus. It was cheap at only £32 so i thought i had a bargain. I was soon disapointed. The camera is small and lightweight, thus making it ideal to take on a night out or in a small bag. The battery lasts a long time, but this doesn't compensate for the quality of the pictures which is simply AWFUL.
  • Pros: Small Lightweight with Long battery life
  • Cons: Poor quality pictures, toy - like, small screen

  • Excerpt: This was a birthday present from my husband. Despite my initial doubts about the quality (of the camera and the pictures), I have subsequently been very pleased with some of the results I have achieved using this camera. ~~~~~~ Looks: The camera is a silver finish, and made of a tough plastic. It is very light, and small enough to fit in your jeans pocket, even in the case (which is included). Dimensions are 9 x 5.6 x 2.4, and quoted weight is 392g.
  • Pros: Compact, Robust, Easy to Use
  • Cons: Poor Zoom, Struggles in low light
