Written on: 10/05/2004 by grizlord (1 review written)

The Goodmans GDC 3116 TFT digital camera eats batteries like there going out of fashion. Software didn't work with XP as was advertised. Only lasted long enough for the 1 year warranty to expire then gave up the ghost for no apparent reason… Read Full Review

That comment wasn't from Grizlord because I'm him! Who ever put up that comment is an imposter! Google Grizlord to find out who the real Grizlord is.

Written on: 21/04/2003 by jim. (1 review written)

Generaly i like Goodmans products but have some reverance about this as the battery life is so small .I constantly keep a set of batteries on charge and have to take at least 2 sets of fully charged batteries with me. I have found that if you limit your use of the screen it gives you a little more time to take photoes. I have yet to get to the 201 image limit before the batteries die on me… Read Full Review

I agree. the battery life is dismal. Never buy one for a teenager. They will just give up using the camera and you are 80 quid out of pocket.

I BOUGHT THIS CAMERA AT AUGUST 2002 NOT EXPECTING AT MAYBE HAVING TO BUY SHARES IN "DURACELL". I HAVE BEEN TOTALLY APALLED BY THE BATTERY LIFE .YES THE PICTURE QUALITY IS GREAT, ESPECIALLY AT 3.1 MILLION PIXELS IT SHOULD BE, BUT EVEN AT THAT THERE IS AT LEAST A 10 SECOND DELAY IN EACH PICTURE YOU TAKE.

Written on: 14/03/2003

The battery compartment on the GDC 3116TFT is a fraction oversize for a typical AA battery, i also have had this problem, I found a set of rechargables that have the positive end of the battery protruding a little more than usual - this may sound odd but it's true, you check out the varying sizes in the same battery class and you'll see what i mean! so maybe that'll sort you out - oversized batteries! you never know...

Written on: 10/01/2003 by ricky. (1 review written)

All in all a good camera. It takes nice pictures in the right conditions and is fairly easy on batteries. Menus are intuitive and the TFT is good quality. Bears much more than a passing resemblance to the Mustek MDC 3000 which costs £100 less. They are identical except for the name and the price, AND mustek provide online support… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/09/2002 by stuart. (1 review written)

At £149.99, any digital camera is worth a look, especially when advertised at 3.1 mega pixels. This Goodmans GDC 3116 TFT has web-cam capabilities (I haven't succesfully used the goodmans as a webcam yet, anybody?), TFT screen, is pretty small and has loads of space on the memory card that comes with the camera...

After owning it for 3 months now, I am still wondering whether I should have put a bit more money into the idea, only because of the things I already stated - no XP support, the web… Read Full Review

I am using Windows XP and cannot get my Goodmans GDC 3116 TFT to work as a web cam although its states on the box it can but only at a 30 sec capture length. I have had my Goodman for over a year picture quality is not too good compared to my other digital camera, I have have some trouble with taking pictures when you press the button to take a picture the camera doesn't always do it properly

The new software supplied by goodmans, with the xp drivers will get the web cam to work, if you have a problem under windows ME, there are new drivers there for all versions of windows and mac OS X, the web cam feature on mine works on all versions of windows from win 95b and up to win xp pro.

<br>I use the webcam under msn messenger and icq.

the number for goodmans tech support, in the UK is printed on the front of the manual, I hope this helps, if you cant wait then download the mustek 3000 drivers from mustec.com that will get it going but the web cam will not work under xp, for that you must have correct drivers.

Thanks to all who have replied to my search for some way of getting the pictures from a USB Goodmans GDC 3116 tft camera on to windows XP. I have now archived this task after many weeks and it only took 1 download from Ftp.Mustek.com/pub/drivers/mdc3000/mdc3000xp.zip 5.80MB. It took me a while to figure out how to install this program, as winXP could not recognise 4 of the 5 files in the ZIP i.e. (Run_web.w02..W02) rename file to (Run_web.wo2) rename all files by deleting the (..w0x) where x is the number of the file. Trust me these drivers work perfectly for the Goodmans GDC 3116 tft camera. I’m extremely happy that this is a problem solved thanks to the support of people just like YOU who love to give their knowledge to others.

Thanks for that info Stuart the Mrs will go spare if I don't get it working on XP. As I was using a duel boot and have now taken off WinME. Winxp read the camera and sent the info to Microsoft off which the reply was "we will be intouch when it is available." I will be making my way down to the computer shop asap to get the usb reader, unless it is a software program. (Goodmans GOOD-GEAR BAD-SOFTWARE) thanks again (m8)

I too have a Goodmans GDC 3116 TFT, with all the problems mentioned in the reviews, I downloaded Windows XP drivers from Mustek.com, because the Mustek MDC 3000 is the same camera, it now works ok in XP. One review says its really only 1.8 mega pixel because it is interpolated and not 3.1, the pictures I have taken have all come out well in high res on A4 photo paper, in fine res they are somtimes blurred. The flash pics are hopeless about 2 in 5 are ok, it seems if the flash isnt in sinc (to slow). Its my first digital camera and my results are far better and more enjoyable than my old camera. Hope this will help someone having problems.
