For a long time I was using my Goodmans GDC 1388 camera as a webcam. After a system restore and re-install of the drivers (the ones supplied on the CD) the camera no longer works as a webcam. I do remember that when used as a webcam the driver I had to select was something like WDM Still Image Capture (then some numbers like: 2000.0b). Does anyone know what/where/how to get these drivers. I assumed it was part of DirectX but I downloaded the new version and the cam still doesn't work. Any... (read more)

My daughter has used this Goodmans GDC 1388 Digital camera a few times and it's already failing. The flash and delete buttons do not work anymore. The pictures tend to be poorly exposed on the majority of snaps. It suffers from a lack LCD for preview shots. (read more)

If you're looking for a camera thats cheap, basic and simple to use, then the Goosmans GDC 1388 may well be right down your alley. But as far as features go, this model falls drastically short of the mark, which leads me to say- you can't buy a porsche for the price of a skoda.
Beginners and those who are being forced into purchasing by a crazed next of kin who's desperate to add 'digital camera' to their show case of un-needed items: go out and buy one of these, Serious photographers: run... (read more)

This camera is a tidy little thing and very easy to use. But to take a good picture with it is very tricky (or I'm no good at it). They either come out too light or too dark. The flash is maybe to good?
My main problems with the camera are its insatiable hunger for batteries. I've put brand new Duracells in it and it lasted for 5 flashes before it complained the battery was flat. If you take them out and rub them then it's fine for another 2 shots or so.
My other gripe is the... (read more)

having recently installed Windows XP Professional I have had the same problems as many others with the camera drivers. Having phoned the helpline on the front cover of the manual I was advised to go to the Mustek website (www.mustek.com.tw), go to the support page, choose drivers, chose the camera icon, select the GSMART350 camera & follow the instructions given. The address of the actual page is :-http://www.mustek.com.tw/Download/driv_ibd/europe/gsmart350.html I haven't yet tried it,... (read more)

Tidy little camera which takes great pictures, especially with the close up macro feature. The price makes this an ideal first digital camera. However the flash is too intense within 6 feet of the subject, it looks like a nuclear blast has gone off behind me. Anybody got any neat tricks to obtain better photos using this flash? (read more)

When i first purchaced my Goodmans gdc 1388 digital camera the macro switch was broken and there was no bundled webcam driver so I was a bit disappointed. I exchanged it for a different one and the disc came with the updated driver and it worked first time. It also came with win xp driver, but don't know if it works as i have win 98. After the initial disappointment and lack of driver, I was really pleased to find that i could use it as a webcam and save on battery life as the usb cable... (read more)

The Goodmans GDC 1388 is a good digital camera, good value for money, small and compact. Pictures are either too dark or too light and is a bit of a pain when transferring to a folder - i like to send them to desktop but there's no default for this. (read more)

I first discovered this camera on the UK Argos website and couldn't believe that they were selling it for £69.99. All other cameras that I had looked at, with a picture quality of over 1 million pixels, were selling for well over £100. Naturally I thought that there must be a catch..
However, I received my camera today (same price from http://www.littlewoodsextra.com , since Argos had sold out) and so far I'm very pleased with it. I've taken about 100 photographs already and have even made a... (read more)
