What a mistake

This was my second camera after owning an Epson PhotoPC 500.

Same resolution and had a zoom lens and disk storage. But that's about the only advantage. This is and remains the only camera buying mistake I've ever made. Disappointing images with poor colour reproduction and lacking in saturation, noise, poor dynamic range. Erk. Compared to the Epson (which was over a year earlier) this was a pile of junk.

I wasted several thousand shots with this camera and only wish I'd either stuck to the Epson or done more research before buying this.

Anyway, water under the bridge and I learnt a valuable lesson in how to sort out the good from the junk equipment.

Problems:

Yes - several thousand images I'd wish I'd taken with ANY other camera!
