"Premier DS-5057 Digital Camera"

The Premier DS-5057 is a five megapixel camera with the following features;
1 . Flash
This can either be auto ( flashes according to the conditions), red
eye, forced flash (always fires regardless) or off. The setting you
have chosen is displayed on the lcd screen.

2. The Screen
The lcd on the back is in full colour and is 2" which I find to be large
enough to see your pictures clearly.

3. The zoom
The camera has a 1x~4x zoom enabling you to not only zoom in on
images before you take them but also on stored images. However
it is not possible to use the zoom when you are recording.

4. 16MB Internal Memory
The memory is sufficient to hold up to 16 5 megapixel images
(more images if you reduce the resolution), not many I know.
However the camera has space for expension through a SD card (
I purchased a 1GB SD card for £20 capable of holding over 500
images at 5 megapixels) The maximum possible expansion is
2GB.

5. Scene Mode
This can be set to Auto (point and shoot), Sport (fast moving
subjects), Night ( evening or night scene), Portrait (captures the
person against a blurred background), Landscape (high
sharpness) and Backlight ( when the light is shining behind an
object)

6. USB Connection and Editing Software
The camera comes with a universal USB lead enabling you to
transfer images or videos (which the camera is capable of taking)
to your computer. The relevant transfer and editing software comes
in the package and is simply put onto your computer by inserting
the CD into your drive.

The camera comes withe the USB cable, CD software, Case, Strap and 2 x AA Alkaline Batteries.

Having obtained the camera only a few days ago I have not reached and tested all the features, I feel there is much more to this camera than I would probably use.
It was brought to capture the moment on nights/days out for someone who is not the best at photography but wants pictures to remeber things by. It took me less than half an hour to set the camera up (batteries and format the SD card) and take several photos and explore the zoom, flash and save to my memory card.

The instruction book that comes with the camera is easy to follow and find what you require and the camera itself is easy to follow (without the need to read the book to find out how to delet images, save to card etc).

With its case the camera is still smaller than most and easy to fit in a pocket or handbag to go out.

All in all if you are looking for a cheap camera that will take decent quality pictures and capture the moment then this is for you as it only cost £35
