Cheap but does the job

It does the job.


It's not one of the stars. But with the low price, at least you get what you pay for. It also supports Windows 2000! Not like Kesington, can't even support w2k!

Not great, but not too bad either.


You can probably find this camera super cheap either by itself or after a rebate. It setup perfectly on my machine and everything works. Fun to play around with - I even realized you can unscrew the manual focus lens to take some cool macro snapshots....

It's a cheap promo I got for free w/ Windows ME


It's a cheap promo. The colors are way off, the focus is awful, the button on top doesn't work, and the software is lame. However, WinMe does have a cute movie maker program which seems to work w/it, so all is not lost. It was free, that's the most...
