“This was my 1st digital camera, and I've now sold it!...”

Written on: 21/11/2001 by Digi Ian. (1 review written)

Good Points
Good build quality, easy to use, expandable, handy LCD screen.

Bad Points
Slow serial link, generally poor image quality, flash saturates at close range, no tripod socket.

General Comments
This was my 1st digital camera, and I've now sold it! For general snapshots of a big area in good light, or with flash at a distance it takes OK shots. But taking pictures of anything specific that's smaller than say, a big dog, is a waste of time. You either end up with a big poor quality image or a too small to be useful image. You have to hold the camera incredibly still too, otherwise the image is blurry, and with no tripod socket it's tricky. And don't be fooled by the 1 megapixel quality either, to get a half decent piccy even on screen you'll have to shrink the image down in a paint program.

You can buy other digital cameras with this kind of quality for well under a ton now, but my advice would be to save up an extra 50 quid, and buy something better. There are plenty of much better digital cameras out now and they seem to start at about £160.
