Jenoptik JD 1300d - I had this camera for ages and did me well as a web cam and general camera. After having the computer hard drive upgraded, I found I no longer had the disc for it. I have searched the web for days now and could not find a driver to download anywhere not even on the Jenoptic site itself. All this aside, it's a great little camera and handy size too. Well done Jenoptic..... just get the drivers available pleaseeeeeeee. (read more)

It's a good camera - as are other Jenoptik products - but the downside to the camera can spoil the general enjoyment of the product.
First there is the question of the batteries, already mentioned several times on the review page. Top of the range power only and make sure you have plenty in reserve as even the best batteries will not last long. General tip - don't review your photographs very often, it's the power required to light up the LCD display that sucks most of the power.

I had the Jenoptik camera a week and all was well. I found it really easy to use, and was impressed by the picture quality. I was however disappointed when on the second week i went to use it and upon turning it on it kept turning itself off. directly after the battery icon and the stars came up on the small screen indicating the camera was on, it just as quickly went blank and switched off. This left me unable to take any pictures. I returned it to the retailer who gave me an identical... (read more)

This camera is also known as the Polaroid 1320. Windows ME users are probably out of the game with this camera due to driver incompatability. Images download in Win98 and WinXP
with few problems. The one nuisance is that downloads are not always smooth if you use a flash memory card. The download will stop midway through the process and the camera needs to be turned off, disconnected from the USB port, turned back on and reconnected. There were no such problems when the camera was used... (read more)

I have been using a Cannon E500 for several years and decided it was time to enter the digital hype as i still wanted to retain the 35mm option. I looked round for medium option of digital camera. The Jenoptik 1300d seemed ideal as it included driver connection and software for PC. Getting the driver to work was a different matter. It works on Win98 ok but only as a removable disc.
For backup I tried on Win NT! with no success and the Jenoptik help line has, so far, not even bothered to... (read more)

As a complete novice with computers in general, and this being my first venture into digital photography i found the Jenoptic jd1300d very user friendly as far as the actual camera controls are concerned, also the manual that comes with the jd1300d makes learning how to operate the cameras features very easy even for the novice like myself.
The only downside i have discovered is my problem trying to get a suitable driver that works with windows xp and this was my fault for not checking that... (read more)

Getting this Jenoptik jd1300d digital camera to download to WinME is a nightmare, it's not a problem with drivers but with procedure. The only way I've managed to download is to follow these steps: 1-Plug USB cable into PC. 2-Switch camera to PC mode. 3-Turn camera on. 4-Plug USB cable into camera. Windows will then recognise it as a removable USB disk and it will show up in my computer as a new drive NOT a camera. (read more)

Although I feel the JD1300d digital camera delivers great value for money from Jenoptik I've lowered the overall score to reflect the driver issues that I've experienced with Windows XP. I contacted Jenoptik over a week ago but as of yet they haven't replied to my email. (read more)

Got my digital camera the other day, as a camera its great, well worth the price. Its just that it wont download with Win ME, yet. Its probably just a problem caused by Microsoft (as are the majority of the world's problems!) (read more)
