General Comments
I bought this digital camera as a Jenoptic JD12 - same camera but only £119. It has 800k pixels which gives you plenty of spare to produce more that adequate pictures for websites at 320x240. It works best in good light where the pictures are acceptably sharp. You can make up for the lack of zoom by cropping down to this size.

It will take good pictures in good fluorescent lighting but gets very fuzzy in low light. The built-in flash works well but has a limited range (1-1.5m).

The TWAIN software is easy to use but limited. You cannot chose to download individual pictures - only the whole lot. There is alternative software available - JDVIEW - from which is much more flexible.

Considering the alternatives - a very limited camera at £50 or £200 for something with a few more features this must be excellent value for updating websites or e-mailing snaps. (The high definition pictures from quality cameras have much to big a file size for these uses)

It will probably be worthless in a couple of years as cameras get better and cheaper - but so will many more expensive devices!

Buy now, enjoy - but expect a box Brownie rather than a Leica.
