Just got off the phone with compuplus... they won't budge on the shipping terms. And since I can't see spending an extra $100 on shipping for 10 small cameras... I've decided to just not buy any extras. So if you've PMd me about shipping one to you, sorry - can't do it.

Just out of curiosity, how do these cameras perform? I noticed someone said they're okay but not amazing. What does that mean exactly? What are the weak points/strong points etc. etc. These things are $50 for me to ship, added with exchange etc. that makes them far less of a deal for me.

Cheers

I ordered one but don't have it yet. I wouldn't expect much from it; it's not a serious camera, IMO.

The resolution is low: 640 x 480, IIRC.

I figure the thing will be useful for quick snapshots of stuff if I'm out comparison shopping or something. If I want to take real photos I'll break out my Nikon digicam.

If I'm surprised when I receive mine I'll post something about it.

FYI: Here's a link to the manual for the camera: http://www.zaurus.com/dev/support/download...-AG06Manual.pdf

Real nice. Obviously a highly ethical organization that truly values its customers.

The camera is pretty good for daylight shots. I use mine for yard projects so at the store I can remember everything i need.

Their shipping is high, I had added some linksys stuff and nearly died when i saw $48 shipping for $65 order. I dropped everything but the camera. After checkin I did find that with the shipping they still beat everyone eles price on the linksys.
The order I placed sunday was delivered today.

How about the SL-C860? Can the camera be used with that model?

Best regards.

Well, just got my camera card. It's a pretty neat little card but, as expected, the picture quality isn't great. The Sharp SW is pretty decent too. You get a live preview on the GUI that updates pretty fast and cleanly. You can choose from 480x320 or 240x160 resolution in landscape mode or 480x640 or 240x320 in portrait mode. The lens rotates 180 degrees forward (towards the subject) or backwards (towards you) and you can flip the preview display to match. The lens uses manual focus (turn the lens ring). There's a shutter button on the card itself as well as one on the GUI. You can set the compression quality between "normal" and "fine". You can save either to internal memory or SD. There's also a SW zoom function (2x, I think) that only works at the lower resolutions and a full screen preview that only works in portrait mode. Other than the limited quality, the only other problem (albeit, a minor one) is that the card blocks the stylus garage. All in all a pretty cool toy, especially at the minimal price paid.

I just bought mine yesterday for the new $28 price (still a great deal) with the $15 shipping (a horrible deal). I'm hoping to get it either monday or tuesday.

I've read that it is very hard to focus and has trouble with low light, but for $42 I don't really care if its up to snuff with a dedicated digital camera.

Ordered mine on Friday. It was shipped on Monday and I received it on Wednesday. It is poor quality (worse than the Zire 71 cam for example) but perfectly fine for quick outdoor shots in good light. For the price, I am happy with it! I am using it on a SL-C860. Total paid, about $30 incl. shipping.

Note that Opie-Camera http://www.Vanille.de/projects/camera.html also can take videos and supports more formats/resolutions. I never tested this on a C7x0 though.
