Argus 5.0 Mp Digital camera w/ 3X opt zoom


Mainly I've used this as a secondary camera when I did not want my Powershot to get wet and stuff.

Cheap. Got this from for just under $70. Difficult to get a camera w/ Optical zoom for this price. Simple to use and operate. Acceptable quality. Sharp images with good contrast.

Not as customizable for images as my Canon Powershot. Flash is a bit weak.
