Cheap, Cool Little Camera

My wife and I like to rollerblade and ride mountain bikes and we don't feel at ease taking an expensive digtal camera with us. If we should take a spill the camera could and probably would get ruined. On that note, Tam had to pick up some craft things at Wal Mart and I wandered over to the computer dept. They had a cheap tiny digital camera that would be perfect for our use. When I say cheap.....we're talking $29.95!! I decided to give it a try without trying to find any reviews and I have to say I'm quite impressed with it. It also comes with quite a bit of free software,
Ulead Photo Express
Ulead Photo Explorer
Ulead Cool 3D
Video Mail
Microsoft Netmeeting

All full versions.
It also comes with a useful little tripod and a nicely designed lanyard.
It has no flash, so it's more suited for outdoors and as luck would have it...that's where we skate


It has a slot for an SD card, so you can expand the memory amongst other features.

If you would like more info you can find it at

http://www.aiptek.com

The model I bought is PenCam SD 1.3

Here's a test photo, straight from the camera and just sized down a tad.

Hmmmmm,

I can't find that puppy for less than $75. You really got a deal.

Found this at a review site..


Full Review
I purchased the Aiptek Pencam 1.3 SD at WalMart for 29.88. I don't know if it was a pricing mistake because elsewhere it is listed at 69.99. I've seen it at the same price at two different WalMarts, so at least they are being consistent.
