Customer Reviews:
  • Oh what crap!
    I got this thing for free and I'm STILL pissed.

    The first time I used it, I was just farting around with it so that I could understand it. I took about 3 pics. I managed to download the pics to my PC. Oh yes, the pics were crap, but what did I want? As I said, it was FREE.

    But imagine my surprise when I went to use the camera a few days later for real and the battery was already dead.

    Luckily, I had a spare AAA battery, so I put it in, and was ready to roll.

    My new AAA battery lasted longer than the little cheap one that came in the package, so I thought I was happy. But then my knitting teacher took pictures of me in the glorious things that I made. I got home to transfer the pics, and the software was now denying that there were any pics on the camera!

    The camera had not lost power this time, and the counter was down to only 10 pics, so I know the pics were taken, but they were not!

    Then I took a few pics just to test it. The thing beeped and whirred ever so slightly, but again no pics!

    I rebooted my PC, and still no pics!

    The moral of the story is that since I put in time to learn how to use the thing, to take pics, load the software, and try to download everything, that it wasn't even worth it though it was free.

  • Execrable Camera, Adequate Webcam
    This is one lousy, INSANELY overpriced digital camera. The still images even at what is laughingly called "high resolution" are poor, and unless you are taking pictures in direct sunlight at close range, not worth the effort, and the video images are no better. There is no LCD screen so you cannot see what you've got until you upload to a computer. There is no "backup" battery so you lose everything stored if you change batteries or allow the battery to die, which can easily happen because the camera is a real battery hog, even when switched off. (Note: if the battery is too weak to even turn the camera on, you MIGHT be able to save any pictures on it by connecting to a computer before the battery finishes dying; it's worth a try.) Finally, the belt loop tore off the included carrying case scant HOURS after I looped my belt through it.

    So why the 3 stars? Because this camera does ONE thing well: it is a reasonably adequate webcam. Oh, it isn't adjustable like a REAL webcam, but it is light enough to Velcro to your monitor. You will need a separate microphone unless you choose this model: Digital Concepts Spy Shot Digital Camera, Voice Recording-PC-Web-Video Clips, as yet untested, which should obviate the need for a separate mike.

    There are literally dozens of different cameras sold under dozens of different labels but obviously of the same design to choose from; choose the cheapest price you can find. $50 ought to be a felony, but the $2 I paid on clearance made them the perfect gifts for technophobic relatives to get them started making free Internet video calls. Once they're hooked, they can upgrade to something better like this: Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000.

    Note: due to the high battery drain even when hooked up to a computer, I recommend removing the battery until just before you are ready to use it and then removing the battery as soon as possible afterwards, which means after uploading whatever you've shot when NOT using it as a webcam....more info
  • Awful pictures!!!!!!
    I paid $5 for it + $5 for the shipping, it was a waste of money!!!!!!!...more info
  • Not worth it
    It bought the same camera at Walgreens for $10 and it is not even worth that amount. The photos come out extremely hazy and small. The pictures are worse than the ones on my cameraphone. And there is no little LCD screen for you to see what you are taking a picture of....more info
  • DON'T BUY!
    I warn you, this camera is a waste of money. it does take up to 247 pictures, but those are low resolution and compressed. It only takes 20 high resolution pictures (which still are bad and fuzzy). AND THAT'S IT! NO MORE! And nowhere in the manual or on the page does it say that. ...more info
  • Pure Disappointment
    The day I bought this camera, I tried to install the drivers on my MAC OSX and the computer did not even detect it. I was disappointed because nowhere on the package did it say "Windows 98-XP"....more info
  • TERRIBLE!!!!
    this "camera" is a total waist of time and money DO NOT PURCHASE!! #1 it has terrable resolution #2 scraches easy and "paint" chips right off. #3 battery life sucks it lasts 15 or 20 minutes, if your lucky, with one AAA battery. take my advice, please!!...more info
  • A cheap very poor quality camera
    I would not recommend this "camera" to anyone. The quality of the pictures is so grainy and difficult to view. Also the software has very few functions.... I would recommend you spend the extra money and go for one with quality pictures....more info
  • Useless camera
    Im so interested to buy this innovage digital camera.This camera is so useful,cheap and convenient.I bought this small digital camera last week.I took some pictures and download into my computer. It worked. When I download and transfer the pics the 2nd time,the camera didnt work anymore. Today, I returned this camera to the store.I recommend that You DONT buy this camera. If you want to take good pictures, buy the expensive camera brands like sony or canon. These camera brands are expensive.But it has high resolution, memory and megapixel. ...more info
  • not great...but not totally useless
    It's really cheap, so I wasn't going into it thinking it was going to take awesome pictures. It ate up my first battery wtihin a week, and I didn't use it that much. It works much better as a digital camera or if you leave it hooked up to your computer while you take pictures. (Thankfully I havea laptop)
    You kind of have to have what you're taking a picture of exactly centered in the viewfinder or else it will get cut off.
    Not the best thing, but if your'e looking for something cheap, it can be useful if you're not looking to spend a lot of money. Just don't go into it thinking it's going to work great or take amazing pictures....more info
  • Overall, bad... But for a keychain camera... ehhh....
    It is what it is first of all: a key chain. This is far from anything in the mega pixel range and I'm sure the lens is cheap plastic. The software sucks and I recommend 3rd party drivers. It will not take pictures indoors AT ALL, they turn out completely black. However, it is nice to have on your key chain to snap a quick picture if you're in a hurry. It could compete with some bad camera phone's quality. Don't take important photos, just quick things you don't have a better camera for at the moment. It's sort of like a post-it note vs a high quality notebook. For writing an essay, a post-it note wont do the job. What post-it notes are good for are quick jotting down and thats sort of what this camera is. Over $15, ripoff. Under $15 and you wont feel so bad. ...more info
  • Not that bad
    For the price you pay, it's really worth it! One thing to remember is, you get what you pay for. Don't expect top of the line studio pictures with a tini weenie camera that costs $10. However if you need to have something simple to carry around with you that's very light weight and handy then this is the product for you. The best pictures that I've taken with it have been taken outside. And uh-hh actually mine is made by Vivitar. But it's the same thing. Hope this helps :-)...more info
  • Not very good
    I got this for Christmas from my grandson. A little complicated at first, but after getting it to work, I found it wasn't much more than just a toy. The pictures are really bad -- not anything you'd want to show anyone. I found it almost impossible to shoot anything without getting a blurred image. Because you have to hold it away from your eye by at least a foot, you are unable to hold it steady -- resulting in the blur. Phooey. Just a toy. And one little AAA battery sure doesn't last long....more info
  • Innovage Mini Digital Camera
    This product is extremely frustrating and hardly worth the effort. The majority of them don't even come with the necessary drivers and software to even make them work and they are not plug and play. By the time you find the drivers, you could have bought a better camera worth your time and money. The quality is only a little better than a cellphone camera....more info
  • Great Little Camera
    Such a convenient way to have a camera available all the time and it takes great pictures in spite of being so small.

  • For Users of Windows Only
    The images from this camera aren't too bad, considering anybody with hands larger than an action figure just might have a tough time figuring out how to adjust its settings - but if you happen to know anyone who meets its scale, they can use it as long as they own a Windows PC.

    There are 4 levels of quality to choose from, but since they are represented by two very jagged alphanumeric non-backlit LCD characters in a circular window approximately the size of the pupil in a Barbie's eye, you never know what you get, until you've downloaded the results onto a Windows PC. This same window the size of the monocle worn by Mr. Peanut also displays how many images remain available to take. Both silver buttons on the camera beep when pressed, for those of you who like electronic things that make uninformative noises. If the buttons don't beep, it means the camera's AAA battery has been exhausted. This can happen if you put in a brand-new battery on Friday and don't touch the camera until Monday. No matter if you or anyone else didn't even dust the camera, that battery will probably be gone. So would any images the camera might have recorded, so make sure to download those images to that Windows PC !only! A S A P.

    I have another problem with this product and so will you, if you have a Mac - caveat emptor. There are no Mac drivers included or to be found. OS X does not recognize this camera. Well, heck, it's so teeny... In fact, from what I have read on some forums, not every package ends up including a CD-ROM with the drivers. So, everybody caveat emptor....more info
  • Caveat Emptor
    We wanted a camera for our 4-year-old and my husband talked me out of getting something sturdier and $20 more expensive, not to mention more age-appropriate. Right out of the box, he admits he made a mistake (thereby making itself worth every penny, thank you). You have no way to see what picture you're taking, except through a lilliputian window. There's no digital panel to show you your shot.

    It took way too much fiddling and jiggering to get it to take a few fuzzy, black-and-white pics before it went on to the Big Photo Lab in the Sky. Its carcass made for a fun toy to toss around and play at taking photos until it was made to disappear by the Recycling Fairy.

    Naturally, this is somehow my fault for agreeing to the whole thing. Now you know. ...more info
  • stay away!!!
    I bought one from a local Walgreens; it will not even turn on. The only way I could get it on was to take the battery cover off and adjust the battery, only having success when it is barley connected; and then it shuts itself off after 5 seconds or the battery pops out.
    Definatley a great way to give your self a headache and wast $10.
    Not even worth the packaging it comes in!...more info
  • Not good, but cheap
    I bought these cameras for my nieces age 9 and 7. The cameras do not take great photos - they're dark and blurry, and the cameras lack a preview feature (of course they'd be more expensive if they had it). That said, they are cheap and better than kid cameras out there. You get what you pay for. ...more info
  • Mini Camera
    Purchased as a gag gift, and at this price didn't expect much. I understand that the camera is actually supposed to work, but the instructions that came with this one were so brief and vague, we could never figure them out. Better instructions would have made it a better value I think. No complaints for the price....more info
  • The drivers don't work on XP PCs - Camera doesn't work
    As a result, you'd never even find out if the camera itself works. There's no place to download updated drivers (for those who hope they can get it to work).

    Notice the only good reviews about this product are copy pasted from some user with multiple logins to Amazon?!...more info
  • Piece of junk!
    After looking all over the internet on how to get it to work because of installation problems, I finally get a message on my computer that I cannot use this device because it will ruin my PC....more info
  • This product sucks!
    I was so excited to find a product this cheap. At first, when it was just shipped, it worked fine, but then, an hour later, it breaks down and becomes completely useless. I read the customer reviews and find out everyone had a problem with it. This camera sucks! Do not buy it! Do not be tempted by its price! Navigate away from this page now and never come back!...more info
  • It's exactly what you expect
    It takes lousy pictures, there's no flash, and if you want anything even decent you need to use the highest resolution which only allows for 20 pictures before you run out of memory.

    But, it is technically a digital camera. If you're too cheap to buy a camera phone or you want a fun gadget for your keychain and have $10 to blow, give it a try....more info
  • Terrible
    We bought this for my Mother-In-Law, and we were shocked by what a piece of crap it is. For me to say that about a gift for my mother-in-law, you know it's bad....more info
  • DO NOT BUY!!!
    While inexpensive...it becomes an irrelavent point when it simply does not work.

    I purchased 2 for my daughters as stocking stuffers and we have tried repeatedly through all of the trouble shooting to get them to work with no success.

  • Driver for camera doesn't install--worthless
    This camera looks real cute and I got it to have around for the times when you just want to be able to snap a quick photo. However, the camera software doesn't load the driver, so the camera is inoperable. I installed and uninstalled it time and again. I looked for updated drivers through Device Manager and the response I got was no driver was installed. Then I went online to look for a driver. I didn't find a camera software driver but I did find a whole bunch of people who have the identical problem. ...more info
  • A kids review
    Well I have to write journal entries for school so I wrot mine on this. Here is how it goes:


    My key ring sized camera that I have was a Christmas present and I really like it. It was a really good value since it was only $10.00. It is not just a camera but a web cam as well; it also takes video clips with no sound!
    The image quality isn't bad either as long you use it in high resolution, and don't use it in a low lighted place. To get an idea of good lighting for this camera, go out side on a winter day.
    It has 16mb of memory which is about 80 pictures on high resolution and about 300 on low resolution. I am not sure how many pictures it holds on low resolution compressed or high resolution compressed.
    The camera comes with its own editing software. It is called photo impression 4. This were you can download and edit your pictures. I will probably not cover everything in this software because our old computer recently broke and my dad won't let us put any thing on this new computer. Because of that I can't really remember everything in the editing software. The feature I like the most about the software is the screensaver option. You choose the photos and and the special effects and then you have your very own custom made screensaver!
    To conclude my paper shows that good things really do come in small packages. I would have been happy if my mom just got me the editing software for Christmas and would have still thought of it to be a really good value!

  • What the deus?
    I thought this was 640x480 in hi res mode? It's half that. What are you supposed to do with such low res? So much for a cheapo to take ebay pics. And my mouse is acting funky since I installed the CD....more info
  • Worthless
    The price is almost RIGHT! I purchased this camera for about $14.00. The price is almost right compared to the quality of photo's. The quality is ZERO therefore the price should be about $5.00. I do not recommend this camera for not even a minor child for fun. The pictures are dark, glazy, lack quality of color, and just right out TERRIBLE!! I am very disappointed and unsatisfied as a customer. How could Phillips even put an item like this out on the market????? I give this item ZERO (star)....more info
  • Junk - barely even qualifies as a toy
    This thing belongs in the 99 cent store. Its probably more valuable in parts. If you paid more than $5, then you should have saved up for a real camera. This barely even qualifies as a toy....more info
  • Fun and easy to use with great software
    I've read the other reviews and like a previous response, am surprised that some purchasers of this product are so disappointed. It is not like my 5.0 MP Canon for quality, but for the size and cost this is a great little camera.
    A couple of tips; if you want a photo in a half way quality shot, you need to go to the highest resolution and with no compression. That means you are going to be limited to 20 pictures that can be stored in the camera for downloading. I have yet to get the PC camera to work for a webcam, but don't really care. The software that came with the camera is almost worth the cost of the camera. The USB cable is also worth the cost of the camera alone, but is not a standard USB type cable.
    I took the little camera out on my boat today and filled it up with 20 shots that were amazingly sharp. You need to shoot in a lot of light and not expect a high quality print.
    For a tiny compact pocket design camera that you can use to capture a quick shot, it is hard to beat. I bought it on a whim at Walgreen Drug store for $10.00 complete with software, USB cable camera case (well needed when you carry it around in your pocket) and instruction manual....more info
  • For the price and size, it works fine if you follow a few rules.
    For the price and size, this camera works fine, if you follow a few rules. The best quality of pictures is in hi res and uncompressed, tho hi res and compressed wasn't bad either. Despite what the one review said, the pictures ARE digital. You can save them in .bmp or .jpg format. Due to the limitations of the lcd screen, upper and lower case letters have to be used. With this in mind, it is easy to see that the "symbols" are contractions of what the operation is, not hieroglyphics. If you remember that this is NOT a low light camera, that you need an amount of light equal to daylight, you will get good pictures. With less light, pictures will have patterns running across them due to the ccd's electronic noise level being higher than the light level. All in all, I am happy with the ease of use and the quality of pictures that this little camera has. This was bought on a whim, I also have had a top of the line sony digital for a number of years.

  • We live and learn!
    I bought one of these a while back. I didn't expect it to be have the performance of a more deluxe model, but I figured it was an inexpensive way to get used to digital photography.

    I had no trouble installing the software, but the camera itself wouldn't work on my system (I have XP professional). In fact, the system had to do some error correction. I went to the web page to see if there was updated software to make the camera compatible with my system -- and I had to subscribe to some online stuff in order to get it -- and even then, I didn't know if it would work.

    I am now saving up my pennies for a better digital camera. And I'm just glad that it didn't damage my system.

    Caveat emptor -- let the buyer beware!...more info
  • it's okay..
    i bought this camera, spur of the moment, i thought it was very cute..but i couldn't see the back of it through the packaging.
    It's nice..it takes 'ok' pictures..but i used it once. and that was it.
    it is pretty boring....more info

  • Overrated Camera
    I was looking for a inexpensive camera to help with my job on a school publications team. When i stumbled upon this camera, I was amazed how cute and useful it looked. But, once it arrived in the mail it turned out to be too small and not DIGITAL at all. The look-through viewfinder is just a small piece of plastic you push up. Also, it only holds 20 pictures at a time! I recommend this for young children (Ages 7-9), but not for anyone else. It is better to spend a couple hundred and get a more efficient camera! Hope my review helped you with your decision! ...more info
  • decent
    Our family took a trip to niagara falls and I won this camera at a arcade for 2,000 tickets. I read the manual so I could take low res pictures and store over 200 photos. I shot many pictures that day. When I came home from Canada, I plug it in and looked at the photos. On the computer the photos looked fantastic no matter how big. When I went to print a photo it came out okay. But this was on low res. Also a good tip is to dont snap the picture and directly after that move it because the picture will come out blury. This is a great small camera. Even though I have this one I'm still shopping around for a 5 mp camera:)...more info
  • This camera sucks!
    I received this camera as a gift, so I just write my opinion in order to advise you not to spend any money by purchasing this camera. It sucks! the quality of the photos is terrible, there are the worst pictures I have ever seen in my life: for the same price you can buy a conventional camera of 35 mm and you will get much better pictures and a better camera. Do not buy this camera cause you will waste your money, it's completely useless....more info
  • Great little camera for the price!
    My husband just gave this little camera to me for Christmas. I read the other reviews, and I find the negative ones to be completely hilarious...this thing costs $15! It's not supposed to produce portraits or panoramic works of art. It really works amazingly well considering how small it is and how little it cost.
    I would say, if you are looking for a fun camera to carry around for those spur-of-the-moment candid photos, this is a good choice. The pictures are not the best quality, but they get the job done...when I took my first pictures with it and uploaded them on to my computer, I was just impressed that I could recognize the items and people in the shots! It works well for taking those pictures of moments you don't want to lose...and those always seem to happen when I don't have a film camera with me. And it works great for taking pictures of my baked goods to post on my cooking website.
    I find that this camera works best with really good lighting...I had to try a couple times to set up lighting that worked. And it works best up close...the farther away you get, the more grainy and blurry the picture is (I've found).
    All in all, a really fun camera for a great price...I am always terrified of expensive electronics because I know I will eventually break or lose them, but with this camera I can take it wherever I go without worrying. If it breaks I can always spend another $15 to replace it without too much trouble....more info
  • Those bad reviews on this one are HILARIOUS
    What are they expecting? 10x16 inch prints? LOL. Buy a $200 5 megapixel camera if you want that... MORONS. Hehehe. Lets put it this way, if you paid $50 or more for this cam.. you got ripped off... if you paid $15 or less.. you got a deal. Think of this camera as a neat toy.

    I got this for $15 at Walmart and had fun wasting an entire work day fooling around with it. It does not take hi-res pics.. only very low res (352x288) but good enough for your kid. It also shoots 10 second movies, up to a minute or so at low-res (176x144).

    The best part of this cam is that it works good as a webcam. So if you got a wireless laptop, you can use this as a webcam at the airport, hotel, or the coffee shop without being klunky or obvious. I would have bought this item for just the webcam feature.

    Since there's no flash, it takes better pics under bright light. Most pics have some graininess but I've gotten some pics that appear sharper with good lighting.

    The one bad part is there is a 1.5 second delay between pressing the button and shooting the pic. Since the delay doesn't happen on the webcam, I assume it takes time to compress the image data to memory.

    The software works fine, but there's no flashy interface. Just a simple window with menus and buttons. I had a problem getting Windows XP to load the cam's drivers but doing Reinstall driver on the device manager fixed that. My copy came with a photo album and photo editing utility. Both have minimal (but useable) functionality. Far more than I expected for $15....more info
  • Cool little digital cam
    I made a blog where I posted pictures I took using this camera at keychaincamera.blogspot.com See the pictures for yourself and deside if its worth it.

    I think this camera is awesome. I have a canon powershot sd550, but I don't want to break it by taking it to work on constructions sites or leave it in the car in the hot sun by accident (i did that with my first digital cam). I use the keychain for taking quick shots for reference only. not for taking nice pictures. Well worth the price, and you can thourgh in your tool bag, purse, etc.

    Sure you can get a mobile phone with a cam that has simular or better quality, but then you're adding at least $100 bucks to the price of your phone. ...more info
  • not COMPLETELY worthless
    The resolution of 640 x 480 is adequate for small photos. Downloading the pictures requires their special front end software, which is a pain, but works fine.

    I bought this for my kids to use so we wouldn't run the risk of damaging the "real" digital camera. Unfortunately, the camera needs perfect conditions to take good pictures, so their pictures turn out dark or blurry.

    If you want a digital camera for a youngster and you think that all of the pictures can be taken in bight light with no motion (from either the object or the shooter) then this camera might work for you. But since many no-zoom "real" cameras are under $100 now, you're probably better off going that route....more info
  • Great little cheap-o
    I got mine at a local geek store for about $10. While I have not used it extensively, I have used the camera and my husband used the webcam. Both worked well enough. If you are realistic at all, you get more than you expect with this camera. The webcam worked well and the pictures were much better than I would expect. They were clear, easy to center (which, no lcd screen...I figured would be a problem). It is great to take somewhere that you are afraid to take an expensive camera and high-end photos are not needed....more info
  • POOR
    If there was a 0 stars I would have chose that. I am very, very disappointed with this item. I would have returned had it been worth it!!!! They included no packing slip to even be able to return it. It was a waste of my time to purchase and to open the package when it arrived. I will never buy anything again. Maybe even from amazon!!...more info
  • Great little Camera at a cheap price.
    I purchased this little Camera from some Street Vendors in the Monterey Peninsula. The reason I bought it was because it was so inexpensive and because I have other Items made by Innovage. Clock Radio, and 2 Telephones. All the Items I have ever had from Innovage have been very good to me and always work just fine.
    I have been reading alot of other reviews concerning this little Camera and am amazed by what people have written. People act as if they are purchasing a Minolta Digital SLR or better. What do you want for such a cheap price?
    I have many Cameras of all sorts and I must say that for this cheap little Camera, it functions and works just fine.
    I paid $9.95 for it and it came with a USB Cord and a CD for software installation and a little Case. The USB Cord alone is worth the $9.95....
    As far as taking pictures it works fine for me. The only thing a Person needs to make sure of when taking a picture is that He/She is not standing to far away from the Object they wish to photograph. If they follow these simple Rules they will have No problems with pictures.
    Someone wrote that the Battery contacts are cheap and poor. I haven't found that to be true at all. If you install the batteries and then carry the Camera around in your Pocket or sling it around what would you expect? I would recommend this little Gem to anyone who doesn't want to spend a fortune. It works just fine and is so easy to use. Hope this little write up helps everyone who reads this.... God Bless you all.......more info
  • It's compact, cute, and functions well for the price
    I honestly don't know why so many people are complaining about low image quality. What do you expect at this price? the quality of a Nikon D70?? If so, you need to come back to reality.
    As long as you keep in mind the camera's limitations, it functions beautifuly. I make sure to stand about 3' from the subject and always take pictures in broad daylight. My pictures have turned out amazingly well for such a small, cheap camera. ...more info
  • UNSATIFIED CUSTOMER
    I BOUGHT TWO OF THESE CAMERAS AND THEY BOTH ARE BAD. THE PICTURE QUALITY IS POOR. YOU ARE LUCKY TO BE ABLE TO DETERMINE THE OBJECT TAKEN....more info
  • Loads of fun.
    Lots of people hate this thing, but why would someone spending $20 on a tiny flimsy piece of plastic expect great pictures?

    I bought this last week, and have been shooting pictures with it all over town. The pictures are strange, oddly blurry, and the colors are all goofy, but they all have their odd charm to them, and it's loads of fun to be able to take the thing out in the middle of a restaurant and shoot pictures.

    I've spent much more on cameras and not had nearly as much fun with them as I did with this one.

    If you're looking for museum-quality photos, forget it.

    If you're looking for the sorts of photos you should expect out of a $20 camera and want to have loads of fun shooting them and then putting the camera back in your pocket, get this. you'll have a blast....more info
  • Fine for the price
    You get what you pay for, which in this case ain't bad. This camera DOES work. The pics are definitely low-res, but not bad. Handy for carrying in your pocket so you can take a pic anywhere. Not good for low-light conditions or distant objects, however. The webcam DOES work (I tried it). Included software is basic but functional. A cool gift for a kid or that 'James Bond' in all of us. Runs on 1 battery, so it's cheap to carry an extra one. Resolution can be set to high or low. Slightly bigger than a box of matches. No LCD screen, but USB upload to my PC worked flawlessly....more info
  • blurry, bad interface, bad battery contact
    I didn't expect much from this camera, and was still very disappointed. It's not even remotely usable.

    The plastic lens makes for really blurry fisheye pictures, with only the center area vaguely recognizable. It also scratches easily, so don't think about putting this on your keychain. The lens has a tendency to pop off. Obviously the pictures are low res, but that's to be expected at this price point.

    The battery contacts are flimsy, and bouncing around in your pocket causes the battery to lose it's connection. The camera resets randomly and you lose all your pictures. Fun!

    The interface is obtuse and cryptic--only a 2 digit lcd and you have to interpret what the weird symbols mean for controlling it.

    Save your money and get something else of a little higher quality. This bargain is too cheaply made to be useful....more info
  • Doesn't work on a Mac!
    This camera was listed on DealMac, but even though it comes with a USB cable, it doesn't work on a Mac running either OS X Panther or Tiger! The camera recognizes that it's connected to a "PC," and Peripheral Vision on the G4 Dually recognizes the camera is connected, but it does not mount on the desktop. Neither does it open iPhoto, but I didn't expect that!

    Oh, well, one of my PC owning friends will get a novelty gift one of these daysl...more info
  • So Sporty and Sleek
    Great digital camera. Take it everywhere. Easy to use, not complicated at all for someone that has never used a digital camera. Takes really good pictures. Really great for those who don't want to carry a camera around....more info
  • Cute, but completely useless
    Ok, keep in mind I'm the type of girl who goes to the store to buy a digital camera, and buy the *prettiest* one, because I basically no nothing about digital cameras. It's very tiny, cute, but basically useless. It's like a barbie toy camera, and by that I mean a plastic toy camera for barbie. It takes HORRIBLE pictures, the software is confusing at best, and it's practically impossible to use. But I bought it for like 10 bucks, so what the hell. Live and learn. ...more info
  • Definite piece of garbage!
    I recieved this camera from my parents as a Christmas gift the day before yesterday. At first, I thought it was a cool camera, being small & all.. When I tried using it though, I was very disappointed. There was no flash, so I had to make my own lighting just to take pictures indoors. When I did take pictures, the picture came out HORRIBLE! The picture quality was the worst that I had seen, & this was from a supposedly hi resolution picture.

    If anyone even thinks of getting this camera, I advise you not to. The price might be great, but the camera isn't....more info
  • fugly peice of sh*t
    yep. not worth trash. worth detonating its particles to kingdom come with TNT.

    the cam/web is horrific. can't take a damn shot. the color rendering is all reds!

    bah...more info
  • WORST PICTURES EVER! DON'T BOTHER
    If you are buying this as a gift, you're going to be embarassed. The quality of the pictures are horrible. No matter how close you stand, the pictures come out fuzzy. Spend a little bit more, and get a disposable camera. Also, no flash, so if there is not enough light, your pictures will come out completely grey....more info
  • Great Deal for the Money!
    I really didn't think this camera was going to work, but it works great! It came with a snazzy little case and software with picture editing and more. The pictures aren't professional quality by any means, but is a great thing to have in your purse for those just in case moments. Its kind of like having a picture phone camera, but without the phone and expensive price. I definately recommend this item, its a great gift idea too!...more info
