  • Excerpt: this is a great little camera and it has 5 megapixels, it has a great 4x digital zoom and a perfect 2.5" LCD monitor for taking pictures of whatever you want. it has an easy to read instruction manual so using the camera is a piece of cake and although it dosen't have many options to chose from the picture quality is outstanding and the battery life lasts forever so you wont be spending a fortune on buying batterys just for a weekend or holiday.
  • Pros: battery life, 2 . 5"LCD
  • Cons: not many options in menu

This is how budget cameras should be

  • Excerpt: Now as far as cheap digital cameras go this is a good one. Its 5 megapixel resolution may seem small these days but for a basic point and shoot camera its ideal. The picture quality is very good for a camera of this price. There is no optical viewfinder so using the TFT screen all the time can be draining to the batteries but thats the only real negative with this camera. Another handy feature not seen with many cameras is the inclusion of a voice recorder.
  • Pros: Cheap, easy to use, great picture quality
  • Cons: Battery life could be better

  • Excerpt: + Small + Good size screen + Takes SD memory card - Feels cheap when held/buttons are pressed - Doesn't use a rechargable battery - Only 5mp - that quality is available on phones now - Always says 'busy' & screen goes black when simplest functions are tried to be carried out

  • Excerpt: Short Review: When I brought it I was looking for at least a decent digital camera and that's what this is, decent. I brought it for about £30 (round about) inc. delivery off the internet. The picture quality itself quite good during the day time but on during the night and you can barely see anything at all.
  • Pros: High megapixel camera, large screen, seems pretty robust .
  • Cons: Not very well in the dark & the flash can be too powerful .

  • Excerpt: Rubbish, the booklet is poor. The instructions are not written well. The quality is terrible AND the flashlight has just stopped working for no reason. It doesnt help that the batteries lose all their power as soon as it's inserted. Just stick to Kodak, Samsung etc and leave this poor companies to make rubbish camera's that don't sell well.

A replacement for the disposable camera?

17 September 2007
  • Excerpt: I bought this for a reasonable £40 off eBay for the simple reason I decided it would soon pay for itself, and it has. I don't take many photos and was a firm believer in the disposable camera several times a year for music festivals and the occasional party or "big" event. After the costs of buying 3 or 4 disposable cameras and then developing then I decided it would be worth investing in a decent but cheap camera that I wouldn't be gutted about if it did die or get lost...
  • Pros: Price / simple to use / decent photos
  • Cons: Flash / zoom

Camera Good, Customer Service Well...

  • Excerpt: I wanted a camera that was cheap so I did not have to walk around with it and constantly worry of it being nicked or loosing at a party. Some of the best snaps are lost because you don't want to take your camera to them moments encase something goes wrong. This camera was perfect for me.
  • Pros: Slim,Light weight, looks expenice, cheap
  • Cons: Poor Customer service

  • Excerpt: I had the unfortunate job of having to set up this camera for my mother-in-law. It had been purchased for her as a gift. (which was infact a very nice thought). Sadly the camera is not worth £10, let alone £50 (ish). It feels cheap, the settings, controls, and menu all seem not very user friendly. The shutter lag is very slow. The images are poor, either to dark, or too light, and not very sharp at all.
  • Pros: Compact & Smart
  • Cons: Everthing else

  • Excerpt: For price and features this camera cannot be beaten. Small enough for any pocket, big enough for any job. Highly recommended.
