good entry camera


I bought this on an auction for only $27. I had bought a $10 digital camera before this one. That one uses 2 AA batteries in order to save pictures, and it doesn't have its own memory card. This one is definitely a good entry level digital camera. It ...

good pic, it doesn't consume much of the battery power at all.

have to manually shut off the flash function every time you turn it on.

Nice inexpensive true 1.3 MP camera


I recently purchased a used one of these on eBay and am pleased with it. The resolution is true 1.3 MP, unlike some cameras in its price range that are VGA cameras that claim that you can interpolate the pics to 1.3 MP with software. The photo quality ...

Ease of use, nice photo quality, generous internal memory

Noticeable shutter lag of a couple of seconds.

Just the facts madam......


Have owned this camera for almost 2 years and it is my first digital camera. It takes from 60 to 90 photos with the 8 MB built-in memory. Batteries last thru several hundred pictures, IF the flash isn't used. It is durable, although I haven't dropped ...

Small, low battery use, flash, macro mode, 60 to 90 photo capacity, good software.

No LCD, 3 buttons pushed to get past flash, low resolution, no tele lens.

Why Chameleon?


The name "Chameleon" is just right for this object as it tries to camouflage itself for a real digital camera.

Price and size.

Very poor resolution

Best things come in Small Packages? Think again!


Largan Chameleon is certainly the smallest of its kind that I have seen. I fell in love with it the moment I laid my hands on it..

Tiny size. Goes anywhere

Bad Pictures.

Snapshots Personified!


A couple weeks ago AOL had a pop-up ad on the opening screen showing the Largan Chameleon digital camera. I was interested because of the extremely small size and the easy payment plan they offered.

Size, Software, Convenience

Low resolution


Product Specifications

Like a Chameleon that adapts to any environment the Largan Chameleon is a digital still camera, PC or video camera! Although it's primarily designed to capture high-quality digital stills or photos, you may also conduct a conference call, e-mail pictures to your friends and associates, and send a mini video of baby's first steps to Grandma, all in one day! It's a 1280 X 1024-resolution, 1.3-megapixel digital camera with a 6-element high-quality all-glass Largan lens. That means you have 4 times the clarify/quality of the original Chameleon series cameras. This four-in-one digital camera is powered by 2 AAA batteries or connected to USB port. With 16 MB of internal memory on board, you can take up to 100 images at the highest resolution before downloading to the PC. You can also take twice as many photos by switching to VGA mode (640 X 480 resolution). No more costly film to develop. With the freedom to choose which images you wish to download and save, it's like having your own film-developing studio! No more worrying about out-of-focus pictures with the Chameleon Mega's fixed-focus lens and internal automatic flash. The Chameleon also has Macro mode for taking pictures as close as 8 inches! The TV mode allows you to preview, capture and conduct slide shows on your TV screen. You can also program your VCR to record surveillance video via the Chameleon Mega's included TV cable for home or office security purposes.
