Bought one here for $99 a couple of months ago. Good camera, decent pictures, works ok. It can eat its weight in batteries in a day though. Better invest in rechargables.

happy wooting, gnite

seems good..probably better than my Lumix LZ-5. unfortunately, I just spent the 85$ I had after selling a broken Cowon D2 on a 2gb sansa clip, Equation RP-21's, and JVC marshmallows. Oh well.

I got one of these from Woot earlier this year.

The only complaint I have is it's clearly a respiffied...The screen is loose and wiggles around and it doesn't always turn on.

Also, make sure you buy a SDHC card if you plan on taking video or it'll be choppy.

For $80 though, it's not a bad deal.

My first digital camera did not have a view-finder BIG MISTAKE... never again

Does anyone know how good the lens is? That is what is most important, 12 MP is ridiculous and you don't need that many MPS. If you have a god lens you can get great pictures out of a 1 MP camera. So back to my original question how good is the lens?

Le sigh. I too purchased this camera when it was available for $99. I would definitely say it's worth it if you are not a serious photographer but still appreciate being able to capture really nifty images with a tiny device.

And yes, it does consume batteries very, very quickly (though my Eneloop rechargeables last longer than regular alkalines and do the job quite well).

Got this camera from woot before.

Works great.. love it. Has some cool features like auto-stitching panoramic photos.

Some folks didn't like a pause after a few pictures (writing to the SD card I suspect). I run in 6MP mode, not 12MP and the delay is not annoying to me.

Why is that?
Every digital camera I have owned has one but I NEVER used it, that's why they have those nice LCD view finders.

Did Woot read my mind?

My Polaroid T737 that I bought from Woot some time ago, broke on Saturday thanks to an unfortunate incident with some change.

I loved that camera and this seems to be on par with it. I'm in for one.

Anyone who owns this camera can comment on the ease of use of its internal menus ?

I think it may be a good buy as a first camera for elderly or young people - unless it's too complex to operate.

Don't for a second believe that because this thing sports 12 megapixels that it automatically means the image is superior. Image quality is dependent on so many other factors, including the lens, the size of the sensor, the technology controlling capture, and the pieces in the chain post-capture.

Here's a fantastic primer on digital camera specifications from Panavision and Canon - if you are into digital image capture, this one's for you (see "Demystifying Digital Camera Specifications"):
http://media.panavision.com/ScreeningRoom/Screening_Room/Box_Office.html

And for a more direct discussion on megapixels, professional photographer Ken Rockwell offers up a great thesis on the subject:
http://www.kenrockwell.com/tech/mpmyth.htm

Of course, if you're shopping for an inexpensive point and shoot, I suppose none of this is very relevant.

100% "ditto".

I love the camera... It's small, fits well in the hand, has a great set of features, it's a great deal

Battery wise, I run Duracell 2650mah rechargables in it and have no complaints.

I don't know the specs on the lens but have seen some sample pictures. You can surely see that the 12mp is to cover up the lack of quality they put in the lens and other features.

I agree, but unfortunately, it's becoming pretty common. In daylight, just cup your hand over the LCD to AIM... it hasn't been a big problem for me.

In very low light conditions it's hard to compose your picture without a viewfinder because what you'll see is a black screen (the camera has to use its flash to see anything) whereas if you had a viewfinder you could centre it properly by looking through it.

I like this camera. My g/f bought one here for $99. I liked it so much I picked one up during the next woot off. It's been a couple months and I still haven't quit playing with all the features. It's no SLR, but you can do a lot of manual stuff, and the quality is quite good - it's 12MP after all. I've seen the comments about battery life, but I always use rechargeables, and most of the time I run out of space on my 2GB SD card well before I kill the batteries. Anyway, caveat emptor, but I'm happy with mine at $99, $79 is a great price.

I'm in for 1. This will be the 7th (yes, SEVENTH) Kodak digital camera that I've purchased. As for the question about the camera's menus, I have never had a Kodak camera that my non-technical husband can't figure out. He even figured out the Panoramic setting on his V570 before I got a chance to play with it. So yes, the Kodak menus are easy to navigate in my experience. Yahoo.com is listing this same camera for $199+ so the $80 price tag (even though it's a respiffied) is an awesome deal. The last 2 refurbs I got from my last Woot work great. Good Luck!

Description says it has digital stabilization. Is this the same as anti-shake?

xeju


quality posts: 7 Private Messages xeju

Oh, that IS the one problem I have with this camera is the lack of a visual viewfinder. On the other hand, I've taken pictures of Jupiter in the night sky, using nothing but the built-in 5x optical zoom, and been able to distinguish up to three moons. No kidding.

As Consumer Reports said, "Image stabilizer is only simulated." That's the best definition I have ever read of the feature "digital stabilizer."

There are two kinds of anti-shake.
"Optical" means it's really happening, by compensating at the lens or sensor. This is the good kind.
"Digital" means it's done in software. This is the not so good kind. Digital stabilization is fake, like digital zoom.

I got this camera for $100 last time it was on, I second guessed my purchase after I read all the comments, but I ended up loving it, Best camera I've ever had, the 720p Video is tons of fun, and it takes really good pictures.

quality posts: 7 Private Messages Jaxidian

I'm in the market for a camera and this looks like it has some pretty good potential. I'm looking for the following things:
- Good/cheap P&S
- Decent low-light pics
- Decent high-speed/high-light pics
- The 720p video sounds badass!
- high optical zoom (don't give a damn about digital zoom)
- I can survive with less than 12MP (4-6MP is all I really need)

Given these things, is this a decent camera? If not, what others around the $100 mark should I consider? I'm not in a huge rush as I still have an old 3.2MP camera laying around to use in the mean time (an old Fujifilm FinePix from like 10 years ago), so if the best recommendation is to keep watching Woot for another model, that's acceptable to me.

4.7 stars via the great reviewers at Buzzillions. Not bad...

I do a daily woot blog where I talk about the woot, link to CSEs, find reviews, etc. A few people have told me it's useful. Google "useful linkage" and there it is.

If you get this camera, I would recommend atleast 4-6 rechargeable AA's to switch out, it uses them really fast, but thats what you get with a cheap camera.

Does this record sound as well as video? Hw about sound with the pictures themselves? Hmmm.

Video records sound. I highly doubt the pics have sound.

Why would a picture need sound? Do you really need to hear yourself go "SAY CHEESE"?
If you want sound take a video. GEEZ
