Strengths:    None

Weaknesses:    The camera in itself is a weakness.

Bottom Line:   
The camera is a fair product at best. It did not come with a memory card and tech support was not helpful at all. I would not recommend the AOL PhotoCam Plus to anyone. The photos I took were grainy. The only photos I have taken with this camera were evidence of a home invasion. The photos weren't good quality. I have had this camera in my posession for at least 5 years and it simply sits on a shelf collecting dust.

Strengths:    Good pictures, easy to use, great starter camera for the kids

Weaknesses:    Camera is sort of big, Battery latch design, no zoom

Bottom Line:   
I took a few pictures with this camera and it seemed to have good quality. But, as soon as i tried to replace the batteries, the compartment latch broke. I've tried to fix the problem with zip ties and velcro, but with no success. I cannot get the latch to stay closed tight enough for the batteries to work unless i hold it myself. A big pain. I was wondering if anyone has had the latch repaired and if so how much did it cost or do you need to replace the whole camera?

Strengths:    This camera has no strengths.

Weaknesses:    The battery compartment on this camera pops open unexpectedly. I have to put tape on it to make sure it doesn't happen when I use it.

Bottom Line:   
The AOL Photocam Plus is, at best, a mediocre digital camera. I believe the person who bought it for me paid at least $150 for it. At the time it was purchased, there were other digital cameras available that, for about the same price, had significantly better picture quality.

AOL PhotoCam

I have a very old AOL PhotoCam that I am currently having problems with for the first time since I bought it in 1999. Does anyone out there have an owner's manual for this camera? I have no idea what I did with mine. Thanks.Read More »
