Strengths:    um...
cant think of any.

Weaknesses:    you name it.
LOW quality.
eats batteries.
slow upload.
etc, etc.

Bottom Line:   
This is absolutely the worst digital camera I have ever tried. The camera did not die unlike everyone else's here did, maybe I didn't use it enough...

The Camera eats 2 AA batteries after takign 2 pics or uploading 2 pics. You can actually watch the battery levels deplete. I only took about 10 pics with this camera, it was just plain was horrible.

I won it in a contest on a website and expected it to at least work ok with a promised size of 640x480, but it looks like it just takes 50x50 and fudges the rest.

Strengths:    the nice blue color
nothing else

Weaknesses:    horrible images, software program is useless, freezes computer, bad focus, slow upload, etc

Bottom Line:   
This thing was a piece of junk. My first one had to be returned. Second one only worked correctly for a month or two and it still was very, very low quality. Camera will no longer recognize the cable to the computer so it is useless to me.

Submitted by Andy Hershcoviz a Intermediate from Israel

Date Reviewed: August 20, 2002

Strengths:    Price ??? (I'm not sure)

Weaknesses:    bad image quality, small memory (2M), LONG picture upload time. Problems with upload software on WIN2K (needs patches)
Bad field (it looks like shooting fro pinhole)

Bottom Line:   
Lowest image quality, sure not the promised 640X 480. Good for making icons only. If you want to print you must work hard to enhance the image. Stopped working after 3 weeks, had to replace by myself a crystal (took from broken pager) and found that it's made by an anonimous OEM for Agfa. Good for kids play to learn basics of photography' or to make icons.

Submitted by Melissa Taylor a Intermediate from Sterling Heights, MI

Date Reviewed: June 25, 2001

Strengths:    Compact Size

Weaknesses:    very battery hungry
flash doesn't always work
the worst picture quality I have ever seen

Bottom Line:   
My friend sent me a digital camera to give to his girlfriend, but she didn't want it and I now know why.

I haven't had a lot experience with digital cameras, but I'm pretty good with photography. Using this camera compared to the ones I've used before was like the difference between night and day. I could not believe the picture quality was 640x480 because it looked so out of focus and so low res, that the camera did me no good. This is pure junk; a kids toy would probably work better.
