The Polaroid PDC3030 is a good camera, but not preforming at all they way it should be. I cant transfer my images onto my pictures on the pc, instead the pics are going into my documents and I cant transfer them into my documents… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/06/2005 by zrb123 (1 review written)

The people that rate the Polaroid PDC3030 poor because of bad close ups, over exposed closes ups with the flash and blurry photos at times need to remember that IT IS JUST A POINT AND SHOOT NOT AN SLR camera. Any point and shoot camera will have these problems. Having done photography for years I can tell you that the only way to avoid all of that is to carry around a SLR camera with several lenses and a off set flash. And who can carry all that around with you all the time?

And if you… Read Full Review

“I bet those people who don't like this Polaroid...”

Written on: 31/05/2005 by Rise Lord Vader (1 review written)

I bet those people who don't like this Polaroid PDC3030 camera are used to using much more advanced, expensive cameras. I also got mine from Argos, with 64Mb smartmedia memory (16Mb built-in)and a leather case for £99.99. Excellent Value!
For the cost of this camera, it's features are very good. TRUE 3.2Megapixels, 3x digital Zoom (no optical zoom though), Web cam mode, video capture mode (with sound)and sound capture mode.
The tiny 1.4 inch screen isn't brilliant, but for checking… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/02/2005 by sleach (1 review written)

I love this camera. I was not after anything to replace my SLR, but I wanted a convenient on the spot cheap digital camera, the kind they give away when you buy a printer. At Au$69.00 it was not pretending to be anything else. It's performance in good light is great and you are definitely getting 3.2MP. Low light is a difficulty for it, but it works within limits. The web cam functionality was a bonus that had nearly acceptable results as was the ability to generate happy snap AVI films for… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/12/2004 by whitespace (2 reviews written)

The pictures of the Polaroid PDC3030 can be sharpened with programs like XNVIEW or IRFANVIEW by using the 'focus enhance' or 'focus extreme' functions;
The inbuild lightning can be used with a POL-Filter in front of the camera's lenses to produce accurate pictures.
All in all a camera which needs tricks and tools but then it's useful… Read Full Review

“The Polaroid PDC3030 is a cheap and nasty camera. ”

Written on: 23/07/2004 by davehough (1 review written)

The Polaroid PDC3030 is a cheap and nasty camera.
There's no point in having 3.2mp if the lens is not of a suitable standard. I'll bet the lenses in those £2.99 single use film cameras are better than this. I wouldn't wish this camera on my enemies!… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/07/2004 by JoeMcA (1 review written)

Does the person who wrote the original review of the PDC3030 work for Polaroid? I bought this Camera for use with Children because, more expensive '3.2 MegaPixel' Canon A70's were being damaged. But this isn't even good enough for them. Picture quality is rubbish!!! Pictures are grainy and look like they have been taken through a glass of muddy water!! 3.2 Meg CCD I THINK NOT!!!!… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/06/2004 by jasper500 (1 review written)

This Polaroid PDC3030 digital camera although very cheap is very nasty. How it can have 3 million pixels beats me as the pictures are terrible. The lens is the size of a mouse's eye so cannot capture images clearly. The camera takes a long time from switch-on to be ready to take pictures. It also takes about 4 or 5 seconds to take a picture, as you need to wait until the beeping stops while keeping the camera steady. Certainly not a camera for action shots. I bought one to take on holiday and… Read Full Review

Seb's Response to 157323_jasper500's Review

Written on: 01/07/2004

I'm not going to get overly defensive as everyone is entitled to their opinion. Everyone who saw the pictures I took was very impressed, but then neither I nor they were expecting that much. If you hadn't noticed, digital cameras tend to have very small lenses. The camera does take a few seconds to turn on, but I have never found this a problem. As for taking 5 seconds to take a picture, sorry but that's wrong, it takes exactly 2 (I counted), and even £2k digi cameras have a fraction of a second delay between pressing the button and taking the picture. Finally, it's hardly fair to compare an £80 with one that costs over £200. If you wanted to replace film then you should have bought the Casio to start with; I bought this as an addition to my regular camera. I would love a full on digi cam but don't need it right now.

Written on: 31/05/2004 by Seb (2 reviews written)

I fancied buying a digital camera, not so much to replace my film based one, but merely to have the option of using a digital camera. Being on a budget, I wanted to get the most for my money without opting for something from a company I'd never heard of. And then I found this Polaroid PDC3030. I paid £100 for the PDC3030 from Argos, and for that price I also got a large leather case and a 64mb memory card.
Bad points first: it feels cheap, with plasticky buttons; the screen quality is pretty… Read Full Review
