On the whole this Oregon Scientific Dshot is a good camera - it's neat, small, very versatile and can be easily connected to the computer for use on the web. (read more)

I bought the Oregon Scientific Dshot III Digital Camera at Wal-mart as a $30 closeout.
I have been using it for all types of shots. The macro works very well. Tip: don't bother using the software, just get an inexpensive card reader for $10.00 or so and you will have no problems uploading at all. I dont miss an lcd screen after all your 35mm cameras don't have one. When I want to preview the shots I can plug right into my tv and see them large screen or go to any drugstore kiosk and browse...

This Oregon Scientific Dshot III digital camera is cheap and cheerful. Its simple and pretty good value. The photos are of viewable quality but look closer and its obvious where the money has been saved. If you want high quality snaps then best go for something like the excellent Fuji Finepix A202. My friend has one and it takes very good pictures. (read more)

I aquired my Oregon Scientific Dshot III digital camera from a friend as a form of barter. Wasn't the friends fault as they never used the camera, but this was the biggest waste of time trying to get the camera to view pictures on my computer using the USB cable. I don't know how much this camera costs new, but I would steer clear of it despite the small and cute character of the camera body.
I cannot seem to get many useable pictures even at the Fine quality setting 1280x1024. I have... (read more)

I bought this cam at Walmart for $50 and regret the purchase. I have been disappointed all the way starting from the manual, the camera functions to the picture quality.
Before loading the batteries, I have read the manual. Reading it has been very frustrating -- the information is poorly organized with many silly typos. I could not follow the instructions and only figured out how the camera works by trial and error. Then I have taken several shots in my yard and proceeded to install... (read more)

In all...I probably should've spent more more on a better cam. :( (read more)

I bought this camera in the hopes that it would be a good one in which to take overseas. After trying some pictures at night and getting some grainy results I tried during very good conditions the following day. In high sunlight and no over cast with the sun at my back all I got was grain, out of focus shots. Tried shots inside but the results were even worse. Even tried putting the camera on a tripod in the thought that it was me moving that was causing the problem. Same result as... (read more)

I got this camera for 20 US dollars when I went to walmart to get the vivitar vivicam which was 50. I am SO glad I did that! This camera is so small it fits right in my pocket, making it very portable. The pictures (when everything is stationary) are GREAT - crisp and clear. Very simple to use right out of the box even!

The Dshot III digital camera from Oregon Scientific is good in the context of cameras available at it's price, however for a few dollars more, as they say, a lot better can be had these days. e.g. FUJI FINEPIX A-202. (read more)

Saw this Oregon Scientific Dshot III digital camera on Jungle. Appears to be a clone of the Fuji Axia Ix 100 but with 2mb built in. Got the camera and 64Mb for £95, bargain! It takes good clear pictures as long as you hold the camera steady, flash has a limited range but is adequate. Have managed to record a movie of up to 2minutes and 12 seconds, very basic quality and sometimes comes out too dark, but for the money it's not bad. The software installed without problem and the TV out works... (read more)
