This camera looks like it's designed to sell at £30. At £50 it might be ok. I paid £100 so here goes.. It has excellent design - simple to use & effective. It's not sophisticated but the colour correction is perfect for snap shooting, the batteries seem to last forever; it's very light & compact - ideal to take around with you for off the cuff shooting. It comes with pretty good software & downloads are quick & effiecient - though you must have a USB interface. Unfortunately it doesn't end there. The killer is the lens quality - a reject from the Hubble Space Telescope or maybe one of those magnifying glasses you get in Christmas crackers - a half decent lens probably wouldn't have cost the producers (in China) more than a few pence! In both definition modes it produces a picture 640x480. Viewed at this mode (on all but a very small monitor) you are going to see rounded edges & smudging. Minor niggles - the case tore away from my belt after about 3 hours (though it looks well made); when you shoot it waits for nearly a second before operating (at least it proves that it's thinking); it shuts off after 60 seconds, just about the time you take to frame a shot, in our family; when required, auto flash has to be selected every time you switch on by pressing a button 3 times; the battery lid sometimes came off & after the first day I had to bend the terminals to make it connect. So if you want to blow £100 you could do worse & it's a good introduction to digital photography. But you'll soon want something better.
