  • 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.

        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.

          digi camera for landscape

          Trying to choose a moderate price digi camera for landscape photos. Actually for my son who travels a lot. Want some manual control.

          have been looking at some 10X optical zoom models. Does anyone have experience with camera shake? Some models talk about this:

          Have you seen this camera strap?

          Got my daily tip from Photojojo.com, and thought it was worth sharing here. They have a link to the vendor, but also links to DIY tips on making one for yourself. (so it's not just a sales pitch.)

          I'm about to purchase my third digital camera. I am a bit of a techie person and find I jump on the high tech bandwagon a little too fast. I bought one of the first Rio Mp3 players, only to discover in 6 months a flood of newer and more powerful players at a cheaper price. I also purchased one of the...

          From camera to computer in real time???
          by winwintoo
          Does anyone do this? If so how?

          This question was posed on a Mac forum that I frequent and nobody there had a good answer.

          The questioner would like to be able to beam images immediately from his camera to his laptop while on photo shoots so that a decision can be made...

          by Liah
          Does anyone have experience traveling with an SLR? I really want to take great photos on an upcoming yearlong trip around the world, but am worried that an SLR will get cumbersome...any advice? I am thinking about buying a Canon Rebel.
          Thanks!!!
