I bought this camera for it's portability as I wanted something small enough to throw in my purse and have out with me. For this purpose, it's a great little cam. PROS: Portability Video w/ sound Rechargable lithium-ion battery Looks pretty sleek CONS: - Construction/layout causes you to often put a finger in front of the lens (even with small hands) - Photo quality is average at best - for 2MP camera. I used my friend's Nikon 2300 and it's pictures (also a 2mp) far surpassed these in quality ...

This camera is a total FARCE!!!! What is the #1 reason people buy this camera? Its small size and ease of portability. I thought it looked cool and supposedly took good little pictures, so I bought one... but I'm here to tell you this camera is way OVERPRICED and OVER-RATED. Now DON'T LAUGH, I'm total serious... because you are not going to believe this! About 3 months ago I was in a WalMart and they were deep discounting a small little digital camera called the AIPTEK MINI PENCAM 1.3 for ...

I have had the camera for several months with no problems. Not a bad camera. I bought it for the ease of carrying it around. Overall picture quality is compensated in the size of the camera. But, not bad. Problems: About a month ago, the zoom did not work and the picture wouldn't focus. I sent it back to Minolta (sense it was still under warranty) the first week of December. I did not hear from them so I called them and they told me there was moisture damage and the camera couldn't be fixed. ...

incredibly small in size...a grab n go camera...i have it on me at all times...i considered getting one with perhaps 6x or more zoom (i.e. olympus c-700 etc.) but realized that even with a better/bigger camera i would take less pics because i would have it on my person less...i needed something small to document life, not to become a photographer... -solid metal casing -decent battery life(considering size) -mini movies w/sound -very fast(start up, pic cycling, and continuous shoot) -did i ...

I have had this camera for over 4 months and have never taken a good picture with it. I started my digital career with a nikon cool pix 950. When I wanted more zoom I bought a sony mavica 1000. For drop in the pocket convenience camera I bought the Dimage X.The pictures it takes are never crisp and clear.distance shots ( without the digital zoom ) are the worst. Sunset pictures are are atrocious.Pictures taken with the sony or the nikon blow the dimage away.In addition the parallax is off ...

My first camera is Fuji Fine Pix 1700Z – nearly 3 years old now. Don’t laugh, I’ll be comparing the little creature against this second generation old camera. My first impression using the little bug was that the small size really maters. The construction is of high quality – slick and rugged. The best thing is you can take it everywhere – it slips even in the back pocket of your pants and it’s strong enough to take pressure. Finding how to use most functions is relatively easy even without r ...

Overall a very striking camera. Light, solid, and quick to start up. I purchased this with every intention to keep and use it. Once I had it and saw the image quality, I couldn't return it quick enough. It's no wonder the price on this camera has dropped so rapidly, it is only worth what you pay for. Look at the other cameras street priced in the same range...that is the image quality you should expect. Problems: Very poor low light performance! This cannot be stressed enough. AF in low ...

The Idea behind the camera is nothing short of excellent. It's small, handy and lightweight - just about perfect for the shirt-pocket. It's my camera no. 2. No excuse for not bringing this camera along because of the size. Problems: I don't know if they have production problems with this particular camera. A lot of users have complained about the "out-of-focus" syndrome. I too have that problem with this camera. You can't take seriously good pictures with this camera. On the image side - it's ...
