4-0 out of 5 stars Very good - for internal memory...
This price is VERY good for this camera. I have compared this to all the other cameras like it, but nothing comes close.

This has enough memory to store up to 15 pictures in high quality and 50 pictures in low quality. The small, but good, LCD screen is very helpful, especially if you want the PERFECT family picture...

You can delete a picture you take in the press of TWO buttons... You can also view the pictures that you take right after you take them, or an hour after you take them.

It's easy to uplink the pictures from your amera to the computer, if you have a serial port open. When I got my camera, we only had one serial port and the mouse was plugged into it. I tried using the camera's program without the mouse, but it cannot be done. You need a mouse to do it. I had to install a PS2 port into my computer and switch my mouse so it was PS2 compatible. This is the reason I only gave it FOUR stars.

This is a very good quality camera for the person who wants one with a screen, enough memory, and doesn't want to buy expensive memory cards. The software that comes with this is incredible. You can draw on your pistures, make them brighter or darker, take off red-eye, and you can even put someone's head in a different body!!

I HIGHLY recommend this camera to those who are just starting out in the digital camera bussiness. I hope to upgrade my camera to a Sony Mavica one day....!!

I hope you know a little bit more about this camera now. (...)

4-0 out of 5 stars Polaroid fun flash digital camera
I recently purchased this camera, and wasn't expecting too much since I had already been disatisfied with 2 other low end digital cameras. I was very surprised at the quality of the pictures once they are downloaded. They are very clear. The lcd screen is pretty blurry, but I was tickled to even get one on a digital camera for the price! All I really wanted a camera for was to send family and friends pictures over the email. I don't care too much for how the camera shuts off after 30 seconds, but heck, for the price I'm not complaining! I only gave 80 bucks for mine, so I would definitely say it was worth it!

3-0 out of 5 stars My first camera but not the best.
this was my first camera. Since then I have had the Polaroid PDZ2300 and HP Photosmart 435 (Check my reviews). I thought it was a good camera for the amount of pixels. But I was limited to wat I could do. I would defiently recommend at least a 1.3MP though. I found the software confusing too. I could only get 15 pictures though so that was a down. I have come along way since this camera, but this camera was a good beginner.

2-0 out of 5 stars How to get around the "Not compatible with Windows NT" error
If you use the program compatability wizard on the setup program on the CD the software for the camera will install and run fine in XP. I rated the camera low because mine too has the same issues with the lcd (mylar ribbon inside the camera loses contact) and I do agree that all serial port connected cameras are slow to transfer images(after all serial ports were only designed for analog modems anyway). My camera also has a single bad pixel in the center of the CMOS imager that is always black.

1-0 out of 5 stars I say nay.
I have had this camera for three years now and feel I can give an excellent review as far as what to expect over time. When I first purchased it the price was more than twice what it is currently sold for, and at the time I expected it to be of a decent quality. I quickly became disappointed.

After a few days the lcd screen went blue/black and I exchanged the camera for another of the same exact type. I was let down by the rapid problems since I had barely even used it and took great care of it. The second camera, in time, had fading and blurring on the lcd screen as well as other malfunctions such as temporarily blue/blackness. I also found myself refilling the camera with top grade batteries at least once a week.

The transferring of pictures from the camera to a PC is a slow process and can get annoying. I don't know if the kit has been changed, but mine only allows to load one picture at a time. With a full camera, going back and forth between choosing the image source, where you wish them to be stored, waiting for the images to load, and then choosing which picture to download isn't my idea of ease.

The photo quality is absolutely horrible, it is often very grainy or extremely blurred. I find myself spending a lot of time editing my photographs, trying to sharpen the pictures. I most often find even after all the tweaking they are of lower end quality. There is nothing quite like the heart sinking feeling you receive when you snap some images dear to you and upload them to find out they barely are viewable. After loosing out due to the poor quality I know not to depend on this camera for any special event (such as my daughters third birthday, where I learned my lesson).

I also have great difficulty in taking any pictures with this camera in the past 8 months regarding lighting issues. It has become useless for me to even bother using this camera indoors unless the flash is on and the desired shot is in complete and total darkness. Sometimes in that circumstance I can get one faint image.
With low lighting and flash on, I get pure white pictures. With bright indoor light the images come out mostly black with a deep red or orange shadow revealing a small fraction of what was in the shot.

I use this outdoors in bright sunlight, it is now the only way I can get an image from this camera and even those are still blurred and grainy beyond anything I ever saw before.

Even at the price it is now being offered at, I still do not recommend this camera. I wish I had chosen something else. To me this item has been a nuisance rather than a convenience. I never had such a bad experience with Polaroid before and do believe in the quality of their products, just not this one. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars SUPER!!! Polaroid PDC 100
Had it for a month, works great, picture quality, resolution, colors, ease of use, download of pictures, TV connection, etc. ALL work perfectly, REALLY! Overjoyed indeed. Thought I'd get the Olympus 360L, but glad I didn't.

I use an iMac and bought a Lexar 32mb Compact Flash card and enclosed reader. No problems! Additionally, Virtual PC v3 also loads Windows 98 PDC programs and I can download and photo-edit with W-98 software also. Friends with higher-end cameras are amazed.

I have absolutely NO complaints at all, and am totally satisfied. (Sounds as tho I work for Polaroid, but I'm retired from a different field). Just a GREAT product and I'm puzzled as to why the camera hasn't received more media acclaim/notice.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fun and Easy to Use
The Polaroid PDC 1100 is my first digital camera. I am a "point and shoot" autofocus kind of person, recently using an APS camera, and before that a 35 mm. Within a couple of hours of taking the PDC 1100 out of the box I was e-mailing pictures to family. Clarity is great, works well with a 16 MB compact flash card (60+ pictures on VGA setting). The all inclusive kit has all the cables and software you'll need, plus an AC adapter and high quality alkaline batteries. Skip getting a flash card reader unless you're really impatient - the camera works fast enough, about 30 seconds to download a photo. The TV display option with this camera is a hoot, and brings the era of vacation slide-shows for friends and families into the 21st century....

2-0 out of 5 stars Not the greatest..
I bought this cause I needed something fast and didn't want to spend a lot of money. The unit ok ok. It eats batteries fast and picture quality is mediocre at best. I should have ponied up the cash for a better camera.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't bother, even for the low price
For the price, I might have accepted the noisy images, the blurry focus, and the slow response time when taking a picture. But the camera showed poor quality from the beginning, with a dim screen, flaky behavior when pressing the selector wheel, a battery cover that failed to stay closed, and poor compatibility with standard CF memory cards. Finally, within a year of purchase, the screen died and the picture counter failed.

Oh, and the rebate that was offered at the time of sale was a scam. Lots of bouncing between Amazon and Polaroid before determining that the rebate was offered by the Polaroid distributer, whos non-toll-free number hangs up after five minutes on hold.

All in all, the aggravation wasn't worth the difference in price.

4-0 out of 5 stars Polaroid PhotoMAX PDC 1100 Digital Camera Shines!
I have had the Polaroid PhotoMax PDC 1100 digital camera for over two years now. I really like it, it has performed well. However, I must mention two items I needed to purchase in order to make this a great camera:

1. AA battery charger, saves a lot of money on batteries. 2. Extra flash memory. I bought 64 MB of flash memory which is actually over kill. I can now get approx. 108 photos on super quality (the top choice).

Keep in mind that the above purchases can be used in many other electronic hardware, so the purchase was not only isolated for the use with the digital camera.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing for the price!
I have been in the computer business for a long time (worked for Microsoft and Intel) and decided to buy this digital camera to get my feet wet. I just resigned from the workforce due to the arrival of my second child and wanted to buy a camera that had at least 640 x 480 and was reasonably priced. When I saw the special price on this, I grabbed it and have not been disappointed at all. It is an amazing camera for the price. I have found that I don't need the flash at all - even in low lights indoors. As far as people reporting "fuzziness", you have to keep the camera still and take pictures within the borders of the viewfinder which can be a bit deceptive until you pay attention to the gold borders. It's been a lot of fun!

4-0 out of 5 stars Good camera for the price
I bought this camera because it was an inexpensive way to try out digital photography. I prefer regular cameras because I don't have a great printer yet, but I just wanted to have this type of camera around in case I wanted to take pictures I want to see right away. It takes very nice pictures that print out great on my old printer. It was extremely easy to use and the pictures download very fast. The software was fun to use.

Since I had my fun with it, and it's so easy to use,I am going to give it to my 5 year old son to introduce him to photography. He already took some great pictures and enjoys seeing the pictures pop up on the computer. He can take as many as he wants becuase I don't have to pay for film and processing.

2-0 out of 5 stars Incompatible with WinXP
The camera is lightweight and comes with the USB/serial port attachments, but unfortunately it's not compatible with WinXP. Going to the Polaroid website is no help. After emailing and searching the site, I found the appropriate drivers for XP.

Taking pictures is a snap, the instructions are very easy to follow, the pictures are so-so, best to take pics during daylight. It's a good entry into digi-cam if you're not familiar with uploading pics to the computer.

2-0 out of 5 stars you seriously get what you pay for
This camera is nothing special. It's cheap, which is good (especially for people like me). But the picture quality really isn't that good, and I'm saying this wholeheartedly.

I bought it for my website. I write stupid and sometimes not so stupid articles about random things, and I thought it was about time I had a functional digital camera to help flesh them out.

I've had this thing for about two weeks now, and I've come to this conclusion: really good/not-so-bad pictures are only available under bright daylight, while any other condition usually produces very average/poor-looking photographs.

Indoors is mostly a no-no, unless you have a lot of light (opening some windows does help). The photographs from normally-lit indoor settings create an ugly grainy effect. Also, even if the camera is completely still and so is your subject, it ocassionally looks like you've been moving the camera while the shutter was open -- making the pictures unnecessarily blurry.

In fact, I haven't had much luck with the quality of the focus -- almost all of my results look a tad blurry.

The software DOES work with Windows XP, you just have to go to Polaroid's official site and read a tutorial on how to get it to a functional state.

If you have Photoshop, the "special effects" that can be used on your photographs are entirely useless. Even if you don't, you probably won't be using them all that often (one finds only so much excitement out of making a picture look incredibly distorted).

Then there's a problem with even well-lit daylight pictures -- at it's normal resolution (640x480), it can sometimes look like a painting. Instead of nice detailed surroundings, you may have little blobs of color everywhere. Reducing the size helps matters, but it's unforunate that I have to do that anyway. The size 640x480 isn't asking for a lot, now is it?

The packaging itself is less than stellar, too. The camera is made out of thin plastic that sometimes feels like it's going to break.

The uploading speed is fast, if you have a USB connection. And it's a great camera for starters, especially younger kids who sometimes could care a less about how great or how not great their pictures look. It IS a digital camera, it DOES make pictures appear onto your computer. So they'll have some enjoyment with it at least.

But I myself am frankly disappointed. What else could I expect from a camera this cheap? I'm looking forward to another digital camera purchase soon. Compared to the more reliable expensive cameras, this is just a piece of junk.

2-0 out of 5 stars bleh
When it comes to electronics you get what u pay for. This camera is extremely basic. It has a flash which is almost too bright for its own good, this along with the camera's sensitivity to extreme light/dark makes its usefullness very enviromentally dependent. Overall picture quality depends on whether or not you can remain EXTREMELY still when ur taking it. All in all maybe usefull for frugal ebayers who need images. Not a good camera for significant moments in life type stuff. Save them pennies cause this camera ain't worth the shiping and handleing. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Very Good For Beginners But Needs More Resolution
I won a Polaroid PDC 640 Creative Kit in a contest. Given its current MSRP, I would not have purchased it due to the limited resolution (640 x 480 pixels). The market is full of digital cameras with better resolution (1-1.5 megapixels) for about the same price.

As ease of use goes, it doesn't get much better than this. You simply put in the batteries, install the SmartMedia card, turn it on, and start clicking away. In order to download the pictures you've taken the software must be installed to your computer. In response to the one reviewer who complained about the software not being compatible with certain editions of Windows, you need merely to go to Polaroids's website and download the patch for Windows 2000 or in my case, Windows XP. It took only a few minutes to download and I was soon up and running.

This camera is fairly intuitive if you have at least a working knowledge of digital cameras. I found myself only having to review the user's manual once, and it is fairly straightforward. The green flash indicator in the viewfinder makes it difficult to frame your shot as one previous reviewer noted, and aside from the limited resolution this is about the only other negative thing I can say about the camera. Although it interfaces with the computer via serial cable as opposed to the much faster USB, I haven't found this to be a major problem. I downloaded 14 pictures to my PC in only about 2-3 minutes just the night before writing this review. Picture quality is fair in the high resolution mode, good in super high resolution mode. I don't recommend using either the medium or low resolution settings.

Lastly, regarding battery life complaints I haven't found the PDC 640 to be any worse than any other digital camera. The kit includes an AC adapter which I highly recommend be used for downloads, which accounts for considerably more battery drain than actual picture taking. The resolution mode you use will also make a difference (higher resolution = more battery use).

If you're looking for an easy to use digital camera the PDC 640 is a very good choice. If you want the highest quality that digital photography has to offer, look elsewhere...but you'll have a slightly more complicated camera.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not bad for a second camera, but...
This was the second digital camera I picked up, to replace an early one that was fine for the time, but...

The PDC640 takes decent pictures "for the web," as others have said. If that, and simple needs, are all you want, great. Do yourself a favor, though, and pick up a USB media card reader. The software and serial cable are not supported under WinXP, or on a Mac - but the images are stored on the card as .jpg files, readable anywhere. The USB reader will be *many* times faster than the serial cable, as well, and no special software is needed.

If you print the pictures (full page) you'll notice some problems - but if you're to the point of printing pictures, you'll want a higher resoution camera anyway. It also takes a LONG time to charge, and several seconds between shots to recharge. Battery life really depends on what batteries you buy - cheap ones, it'll eat like a kid with candy. Buy decent batteries (or rechargables) and they'll last a long, long time.

When the batteries are ready to go, though (1/4 left in the indicator) the pictures get awfully dark - you can see them get darker and darker. The viewscreen will, of course, eat them faster.

If you need high resolution, zoom, etc. this isn't the camera for you. For quick family pics, though, it's fine.

5-0 out of 5 stars THE BEST LITTLE DIGITAL CAMERA IN THE WORLD !
I BOUGHT MY CAMERA TWO YEARS AGO IN A WALL MART STORE . AT THAT TIME I PAID [money] FOR IT ; I HAVE USED THIS CAM. ALOT I TAKE ALL KINDS OF PICTURES WITH IT .

4-0 out of 5 stars Great first time camera
I bought this camera a few months ago and love it. It takes great pictures and loads to the PC easily. Only draw back is theres no zoom lens. Take a look at the pictures taken with it in my webshots pages: [website]

2-0 out of 5 stars Bad battery life, poor driver support, serial only...
I got this for Christmas a couple years ago. The first thing I disliked was the battery life -- I'd run out by the New Year. Plus, Polaroid didn't keep up on writing drivers when Windows 2000 came out (though there is Linux/FreeBSD support via gPhoto), and the green view-finder light is annoying. Now I have a white iBook and there's basically no hope for compatibility, as my camera only came with a serial cable (not a USB cable). Polaroid's recent Chapter 11 filing probably means I won't get Mac OS X drivers any time soon (though Apple may come through in the next versions of iPhoto). If you work only work on a supported platform and like giving Energizer money, this still isn't the camera for you! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars PDC 640 is a good value for family and friends.
If your not looking for a wonderful image, and you want general features and semi-large disk size, this camera is for you. I have used the old and new PDC camera for basic things like family dinners, holidays, and vacations, and I get the perfect picture everytime. It allows you to choose 5 different quality settings, for the distance and quality you prefer, and choosing the lower quality settings will allow you to hold more pictures on your disk at one time. So in conclusion, the PDC from Polaroid is a good all around value, for the not so professional photographer.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not bad for the price!
First of all if you want this camera, you are probably looking to save some money. I bought it for only $99 at Wal-mart. Although it isnt the greatest camera, it is definitely worth the money, perfect for new users. It takes excellent pictures with the right lighting and if your kind of close up. It takes a few practice tries. But all in all, it is easy to use, easy to set up, easy to put in the computer. I would recommend this to anyone buying a digital for the first time or for casual use.

1-0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THIS!
Since the day I got this camera it never worked right. At first it was just the fact that the serial connection did not work. So for awhile it took great pictures and they printed very nice! Then it started draining the batteries. Then it just stopped working. Polaroid has done nothing to help me. Not since the day I bought it. Then I also went and bought another polaroid camera and it doesnt work either. And I inquired with polaroid again, and they still haven't helped me! DO NOT BUY FROM THIS COMPANY! The are horrid and do not care about their customers. And their cameras dont work. There have been hundreds of these cameras (this particular model) on ebay that are non working and being sold for parts! As is mine! BEWARE!

3-0 out of 5 stars no probs here
i bought this camera a few days ago and already put it through its paces,i have had no problems with picture quality for a [reasonably priced} camera,
it doe's blur when someone moves as do most really [ reasonably priced]
i bought it only for personal use to take pics of family and friends and it doe's me fine
i took a few pics at max res and they came out very good in my opinnion.
like i say for a [reasonably priced] cam it does the job, but if your looking for the semi pro cams then you'll pay closer to [money amount] or more
so basically it all depends what you want to use the camera for

1-0 out of 5 stars 1 star is not low enough
I have had this so called camera for 4 months, tried every possible setting to stop an over exposed light condition. This causes faded pictures. No wonder Polaroid is going broke. This may have a flash, but it is totally worthless. I have a cheap intel CS630 that will take great pictures, just point and shoot. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars updated: quick and easy
Updates to the below: After several weeks and taking shots both inside and out, I'm finding that my inside shots *sometimes* (maybe 1 in 5) come out too dark. It seems that the automatic setting for the flash sometimes incorrectly adjusts the flash to the light level. I might need to set the flash to "on" instead of "auto". Otherwise, the camera is doing great.

I got this camera yesterday so this review will be my first impressions.

1. I was a little confused by the description on Amazon as to whether I would get a 2 MB or 8 MB SmartMedia card. I still don't know but the product description is correct in saying that in the highest resolution you can get 12 pictures. Due to the compression used, I'm just not sure what amount of space that means I have.

2. This package (PDC-640 FL Digital Camera Kit) has everything you might need - AC adapter, TV cable, serial cable, batteries, FlashPath reader, case, wrist strap, PhotoMAX software. It would make a great gift for anyone not a photo expert.

3. The FlashPath reader and PhotoMAX software in particular make it very easy to move your pictures from the camera to a PC. The PhotoMAX software is not a full-fledged image editing application but it can add text, rotate, change contrast or brightness or hue, and organize into photo albums. The software seems to be designed for non-experts.

4. The camera is mostly automatic. Just point and shoot. My first few attempts inside came out very dark but it is possible I didn't have the flash set correctly. After some tinkering of the settings, the pictures came out fine. So it does take a little getting used to all the buttons and settings and how you maneuver through the menus. Still, I hardly looked at the quick start card and after a bit I was doing fine.

5. I got this camera partly because I don't really need anything fancy or with super high resolution. I will mainly take shots and send them to my relatives via email. And for email you don't want to send a really big file like you get with the megapixel cameras. This camera's resolution is plenty fine for my purposes.

So my first impression is... this is great! Just what I need. Quick and easy to use! And at a good price!

3-0 out of 5 stars Ok for the digital beginner
Being new to the digital camera world, I was looking for something that was basic, and relatively inexpensive. This looked like a good deal; it didn't require a lot of extras to read the picture, and the price was right. The camera does have a lot of great features, such as the view screen and the ease in attaching it to the computer. The picture quality, when using the highest resolution, is good, but the card will only hold 12 pictures on that setting. If you take pictures on the lowest resolution, you can get 96 pics on the card, but the quality is just ok.
The card is easy to remove and load into the included 3.5" floppy to load into the computer, and the photo software is pretty easy to install. The software allows you to edit and send the photos, and to add special effects to your pics.
The biggest drawback to this camera is the fact Poloroid doesn't sell additional picture cards that can be loaded into the camera.The website wasn't much help and when I wrote to Customer Service to find out if there was any way to buy extras, I never received an answer. The other problem with the picture card is that every time you transfer pictures to the computer, you lose a little more space on the card, and aren't able to "clean" the card using a wiping program.
If you aren't going to be able to download the pictures for some time (such as on a long trip), you will need to set the camera on the lowest resolution in order to get more than 12 pictures on the card. The other alternative is to bring the old standby film camera so that if the card is full, you can still get the pictures.
It is great to be able to see the photos before you print them, and choose the ones to keep. I loved the fact it it is really easy to get started using it, and it doesn't require a card reader to load the pictures from the camera to the computer. It does eat batteries, though, and you may want to buy a battery recharger so that you always have fresh ones.
For the casual user, this is a good way to get started in the "digital" world; it's fine for folks who just want to send photos to Mom over the Internet. If you like taking pictures or want to use this when traveling, you may want to spend a few more bucks to find a digital camera that has replaceable picture cards, so you can carry extras. Many of the more expensive cameras have cabling that will allow you to directly attach the camera to the computer, so you may not need to have a card reader.

Overall, this camera is easy and fun. But do your homework before buying it. For sending pictures to Mom, this is great. If you want to get into some serious photography, spend more money.

1-0 out of 5 stars slow and downright terrible
just let me name four things that make this camera the WORST in the world: 1.you would miss most of the great photographic opportunities because the flash has to recharge, and it takes FOREVER!!!! 2.how do you get, say, a natural history photograph at the zoo if it doesn't have a zoom lens!? don't be fooled by what ebay says about the lens, they are just trying to make money off you! 3.the SUPER fast shutter speed doesn't allow ANY dim light, whatsoever into the camera, if you even tried to take a picture in dim light the picture would just turn out BLACK! 4.the software is totally screwy (with some things) like the brightness system, you set it to a certain brightness, but you dont like it, so you keep tweaking the brightness and before long it is all white!

that is the end, but just remember one thing, this is the one camera that you don't want to buy!

1-0 out of 5 stars Made me want to rip my hair out
Ok, the camera takes great pictures. However, they're absolutely useless because the software that comes with the camera is terrible. Now I have a load of pictures that are just stuck in my camera. I cannot get them to come up on the PC no matter what I do, and I can't seem to figure out why. If you use anything other than windows 95, the Photomax software won't even work. Buying this camera was probably the biggest waste of money I've ever done.

3-0 out of 5 stars its nice but
very nice camera, but dont try to take pictures and expect to look good enlarged to to the 640x680 pics, also had a problems with shuting off and uploading images, seems to be problems with this camera. other than that not bad for the price. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

The Polaroid Fun! 620 digital camera offers you an economical way to take digital pictures, and is best suited for carefree snapshots. With a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels, the pictures are fun-sized: ideal for e-mail and Web pages among family and friends, but inadequate for printing. Also, don't expect great levels of detail since the image quality is only fair, with a tendency to be slightly fuzzy. The built-in 1 MB memory holds 32 digital images in full 24-bit color, like a good-sized roll of film.

With autofocusing and a fixed lens, the camera is always ready to go--picture-taking simply requires you to point and shoot. This means the camera can be used by nearly anyone, of any age. The four top buttons function for power, erase, self-timer, and shutter. The 15-second timer gives you plenty of time to jump in with your friends in front of the camera. The tiny LCD screen only displays two alphanumerical characters. The default setting for the display shows the total pictures taken, but can also inform you when memory is full and the battery is low. A beep sounds when you take a picture or erase. Two LED lights beside the optical viewfinder indicate low-battery status and when the camera is on. If not in use, the camera automatically shuts off after 60 seconds to conserve battery life. On the bottom of the camera are a battery compartment for four AAA batteries (included), and a screw mount for tripod use.

The included dual-cable has the option of either USB or serial connection. This is a welcome feature for anyone with older, non-USB equipped computers, while still offering easy USB connectivity. The camera's fairly compact size and wrist strap make it easy for carrying anywhere. The plastic housing feels solid in-hand, but lacks any substantial grip or ergonomic design.

The bundled software, PhotoMax, interfaces with the camera for easy transfer of photos and more. You can crop, resize, enhance the image, and even add crazy special effects. The software catalogs your images in custom folders with thumbnails for easy photo perusing and slideshow. The file-renaming tool keeps the images identifiable with date imprinting. Through the software, you can even visit Polaroid's Web site to access helpful resources on digital photo-taking and open a free account to store and distribute photos online. The software is compatible with Windows 95, 98, Me, and 2000. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars On a sunny day, with a steady hand~good enough for the price
I wanted an [inexpensive] way to take digital pics ~ after testing under a number of conditions...
The only acceptable pictures were taken outdoors in bright light with the subject 5-25 feet... greater distances (scenery) were low in detail... and a steady hand is necessary... the nicest things is the self timer ~ my niece used at cheerleading camp and was able to set it on a picnic table top & set the timer so everyone could be in the picture (about 10 feel away) & they turned out cute! Otherwise the kids took a few ok pictures ~ but most were blurred ~ you REALLY need a steady hand...

1-0 out of 5 stars A toy, not a camera
Save your money. Poor picture quality, just not enough pixels for a decent image. A flash might make it tolerable for limited web usage, but without its only suitable for outdoor shots, and those won't be good. Light, flimsy plastic, looks and feels like its from the toy dept, not photo.

The more your budget is limited, the more research you should do to get the most for your money. Look for something w/ a flash and more pixels. There are many photo review sites to supplement the info here. And pay more attention to the reviews of people who've had the equipment longer - it's easy to have contagious enthusiasm for a brand new toy.

3-0 out of 5 stars good starter digital
This digital takes decent pictures and even without the use of a memory card holds more than the usual digital does. My only problem is that it is not compatible with my new Windows XP...so if you don't have that version of windows you'll be fine...it's like having an easy, regular camera, but you don't have to buy film or pay for developing!

1-0 out of 5 stars Only worked for a few months
I received a Polaroid Fun Flash Digital camera as a Christmas present in 2000. I used it infrequently until about August when it would not take or display pictures. I tried to get it repaired by Polaroid but found they have an apparent large backlog of repairs (not a surprise to me) and also had difficulty speaking to anyone. I suppose the only good thing is the price, although the trite phrase "you get what you pay for" certainly applies here. I could not recommend this camera to anyone for any purpose. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Polaroid PDC 3350
In a word, fabulous!
In 6 months the only trouble ive had with this product is dropping it down 2 flights of concrete stairs, which caused the lens cover to snap off. No worries though, it just clipped strait back on :D

This camera is brilliant for whatever mode you want to take your pictures in, it has all sorts of functions for indoor, outdoor, cloudy, different lighting. There are several different kinds of flash, which is handy, but when you set the camera not to have a flash, the picture will be VERY blurry, even if you rest the camera on a flat surface. The play mode is brilliant, allowing you to scroll through your images or select one from a grid with all displayed in. You can zoom in and out of a picture you have just taken too. I havnt used a memory card with it yet but ive found the capacity to be sufficient. If this is your first camera, i would suggest buying rechargable batteries as the camera eats though them. Buying cheap batteries in bulk wont help, the cheapest ones will take about a picture each before the camera turns off.

In all, a fantastic camera, with the only slight disadvantages of battery consumpion, and blury pictures WHEN theres no flash. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Great digital camera at this price-point
I have had this camera for several weeks and have taken almost 100 pictures so far on the original batteries (most with flash).
PROS: good contrasty images (maybe a bit too much at times);
sharp enough for 5x7 inch prints if Impressions software is used to sharpen (at default setting);
quite accurate color balance with or without flash (better than an Agfa CL18 I tried);
can take close-ups to about 18 inches;
DOES work fine with Windows 98 S.E., my parallel port scanner and USB printer, and I can also use HP PhotoSmart program to download images from the camera as well;
very inexpensive to purchase (if you subtract the cost of the included Instant camera and film).
CONS: narrow flash range for proper exposure (approx 4.5 to 7.5 feet: you can improvise a flash reduction filter for closer. I use a polarizer filter over the lens for this purpose: you can add a 'slave' flash unit for farther);
No add-on memory possible (max number of stored pictures varies from 16 to 18 at 640x480, dependent on detail contained in pictures; can only be deleted from camera memory with Photo Impression 2000 software);
hard to find a small carrying bag that fits snugly;
really need other photo manipulation software for certain changes, e.g. rotation of image (I use one from my scanner);
you must have a free serial mouse port (get a PS/2 mouse).

3-0 out of 5 stars Camera is good and excellent for the money - but, don't drop
I loved the camera and I love it more now that I've purchased a Mustek which is going back. Just be careful - don't drop it! The batteries burn out very quickly and it would be great if it came with some kind of adapter.

5-0 out of 5 stars camera has been highly underrated
`for being a dual camera it does what it says it does the only catch is you MUST use duracell batteries or the unit will NOT work...alot of people do not know this and therefore think the camera is faulty...its not....it takes wonderful digital pictures...for being a one focus lense......

2-0 out of 5 stars Battery drainer
This camera takes okay pics for the $, but it drains batteries really fast!!... I think I took about 15 pics with brand new batteries and already the batteries were drained.

1-0 out of 5 stars terrible quality, even for the price
i wouldn't recommend this one, not even for the price... the sticky film feature is kind of fun, but the digital camera is not good at all. it's virtually impossible to take pictures inside- they either come out way too dark so that you can't even decipher what it's supposed to be, or WAY too bright and over exposed, bleaches out every thing. the software that it comes with is not bad though, and the whole thing is self explanatory and very simple to use. ...

Its an excellent camera and they should continue to sell them. It would be a disapointment if they cancel these nice camera's.I know alot of people with them and people that want to order some in canada. So please do cancel these camera's. thanks in advance

1-0 out of 5 stars Maybe the beginning of a legendary junk camera
If you like the quirky pictures which a Holga, Diana, or other cameras produce; you will like this. I was originally angry at the poor quality of images as I wanted to use the camera for professional insurance work. But....I let it set in a drawer for six months and got it back out.
I experimented with it and got some interesting surreal results which I made into works of art with PhotoShop. This toy camera may be the beginning of another legendary junk camera.

5-0 out of 5 stars Buy This Camera Now!
This is a great Camerar with excellent battery life!
The 16 mb of flash memory holds 180 pictures at the highest image quality setting!
I have taken over 100 pictures with the flash on and my batteries are still at full power! :)
This camera is feature packed for the low cost.
It includes a video out so you can view your pictures as a slide show on your TV.
The mp3 playback qualtity is excellent as well.
The included PC software is a breeze to use and the camera could not be any easier to set up.
I highly recommend this camera as a first digital camera or as a camera for the young photographers in your house :)

5-0 out of 5 stars Polaroid Max Digital Camera and MP3
This camera looks good and takes quality pictures and it's easy to set up.

It's upgradable with its Compactflash card, and it plays MP3s. What more do you want for the money.

Its not the best camera, its not the best MP3 player. But its strength is combinacity.

Its you get it that 1st thiing to do is get a larger Mem Card (you need this if you want to play MP3s. 16mb standard wont cut it) And if you upgreade the headphones, The sound quality is greatly increased.

5-0 out of 5 stars VERY COOL
This camera is very good for beginners. I enjoyed playing with the LCD because it handled very good. The Mp3 quality is ok but......its the best.....I took lots of pictures and they turned out good...if you aren't going to take pictures that are far away then this is a good camera. The zoom is what is lacking! ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Don't expect much....
I got this camera so I wouldn't have to get the film developed. lol. I also bought it for simple snap shots. What I like is that you can download the pictures onto your hard drive, erase them from your camera if you don't like them, comes with a battery and cord, you can retouch photos (not in a professional way), add special effects, take video captures, and play with 'photo fantasy' (your face on someone elses body). It doesn't take the good photos (made me rethink why I didn't get a camera with film). This Polaroid is only for kids or those who is new to digital cameras. Start with this model and get familiar with it, then buy a better camera.

2-0 out of 5 stars A piece of junk
Flash didn't work most of the time and if it did, it took to long to set itself up again. Had to change batteries constantly!!

2-0 out of 5 stars good for a first digital camera
This camera is basically only good for someone that doesn't know alot about computers and digital camera.

what stinks about this camera, is there is no flash....and you can't buy a memory card to store more pictures, so it's not good for a vacation.

the quality wasn't the best, kinda grainy....
but if you're just looking for a simple camera to learn the basics of how to work digital cameras, this is a good way to learn w/o spending too much money

1-0 out of 5 stars couldn't use for anything!
I bought this camera hoping to use it to take pictures of stuff to sell in online auctions... and couldn't even use it for that, as every picture was very blurry, and it was very hard to get any detail, except with TONS of outside light. The only thing was able to do successfully was "impressionistic" artwork of flowers!

1-0 out of 5 stars .07 Megapixels? Pass!
I'm going to make this short and sweet. .07 MP is not even adequate for a child, let alone a casual picture-taker. This digital camera fails to capture ANY detail whatsoever unless there is an extreme amount of light. In the ideal circumstance where much light is available, the photo is still rather blurry. If you attempt to take any pictures in normal household light, prepare for shadows and utter darkness. This camera is utterly worthless, and I strongly suggest you keep far, far away from it. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Value
Pluses: 1 Great price for what you get (Camera, case, software, cables to connect to computer) 2 Picture quality is very good.

Minuses 1 Slow to download to computer. (You can start it loading and leave it alone, though.) I have a very fast computer and could take 30 seconds to dowload a picture from camera. 2 Uses batteries up quickly. You can use up 4 penlites in an hour of heavy use (especially if you use the view-screen on the back - that is what really uses the power up). (Not any different from other digital cameras from what I read.) 3 Very little documentation, not a problem for me, since I wouldn't read anyway, but others may want to read more about it.

NOTE: I searched around and other online retailers had lower prices up front, but after you add shipping and taxes (yes taxes on some sites) you end up paying more than on Amazon. So I bought from Amazon! Plus, Amazon delivered quickly of course, and I don't know how the other guys would do as far as customer service.

Number of pictures: With the 4 megs built in, you can take 12 XGA superfine, 25 XGA fine, 50 XGA normal - 22 VGA superfine, 45 VGA fine, 90 VGA normal.

Extra pictures: It uses CompactFlash Cards. Can buy to add Megs of memory to hold more pics. (approx $ per meg for the CompactFlash cards) Amazon and others also sell these.

5-0 out of 5 stars BEST DIGITAL CAMERA FOR UNDER...
THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST DIGITAL CAMERA YOU CAN PURCHASE THAT ISAT LEAST 1 MEGA-PIXEL UNDER ... MY WIFE AND I SPENT ALOT OF TIME CHECKING OUT DIGITAL CAMERA'S OVER THE PAST FEW WEEK'S, TO USE TO TAKE PICTURE'S OF CAVE'S AND VACATIONS, AND FINALLY DECIDED ON THIS CAMERA. THE VALUE OF THE CAMERA ALONG WITH ALL THE EXTRA'S YOU GET IS WELL WORTH IT(4 MEG BUILT INTO CAMERA AND UPGRADE OF MEMORY,USB SUPPORT AND CABLE'S,FINALLY WHAT MOST CAMERA'S DO NOT PROVIDE A/C ADAPTER) i MUST SAY THE PICTURE'S ARE SOME OF THE BEST I'VE SEEN FOR THIS PRICE. THE LCD SCREEN IS VERY GOOD AND CLEAR, THE CAMERA IS VERY FUN AND EASY TO USE. ALL THE PEOPLE THAT COMPLAINED ABOUT BATTERY LIFE, LET ME SAY ALL CAMERA'S EAT BATTERIES, SO THIS CAMERA EATS BATTERIES LIKE ALL OTHER DIGITAL CAMERA'S.

This is a nice entry level point and shoot camera. I recommend this for someone who wants to start out in digital photography. I do recommend the 48MB CF card, and a professional battery pack. It will go through it's 4 AA's in about 30 minutes, high current draw. But it takes nice photos, and it's nearly indestructible too. In order to use the connection software(serial RS-232) you will need Windows 95+, and use EPP mode. And for the second generation PDC-700(USB enabled) you will need Windows 98+ to use it. Overall, a good entry level digital camera.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great little camera!
I bought this camera for about 2 years. It takes very good, clear pictures even on the medium resolution setting. They look very good printed up with a photo printer.

Since it didn't hold very many pics, I bought a 64 MB Compact Flash card, and now it holds hundreds, so I don't have to download them often to free up space. Yes, regular downloading is somewhat slow, but there is a slot for a USB cord, it just wasn't included.

I have had no problems with the software, or this camera. Yes, it uses batteries quickly (as do all digital cameras) but I opted for easily replaceable AA's instead of rechargable. That's just what works for me, it's easier.

All in all, I am very glad I bought this camera and would recommend it to anyone!

1-0 out of 5 stars Wasted precious money
Cannot take camera anywhere without being waited down with
batteries. It got to be ridiculous to be changing batteries
so much. Never got the Photomax to download .I sent it back to the company. They sent it back to me and it has never worked since. Wish I could get a refund. It is in the box with all papers. Directions were too complicated also.
Can't afford to buy another one. Afraid the same thing will happen and I certainly can't afford that. The store where I bought it doesn't even handle the product three months later. Does that tell you something? ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great basic camera
I've had mine for a week now, and it takes great pictures. Very clear, sharp, bright colours, both outdoors and with flash. LCD display is excellent, and allows you to zoom in on picture details when you're reviewing what you've shot. Also shoots nice, smooth AVI movies (though without sound).

It comes with a cable to hook it directly to a TV, which is an excellent bonus when you're visiting grandma.

It's also simple to use -- my eight- and ten-year-olds both took very good photos on their first try.

I would strongly recommend this as a digital camera for beginners, or for those who want a simple camera for quick snapshots, small prints (up to 5x7) or emailing. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars check carefully
I have this camera and it is in the box. It is an ok camera but I had so much trouble finding a memory card that I gave up not to mention the flash burnt up 1 hour after I had it out of the box, also I could not figure out out how to work the inet button which is supposed to connect you to the internet. I contacted Polaroid because the user manual said nothing about it. Polaroid said that they had discontinued this camera and all of the models they had were reformatted to be used the same as the pdc 640 cameera and the inet button had been disabled and was of no use exceot as a review button for pictures. So check carefully with Polaroid before buying. I now own a PDC 64o ptotmax and it is great for point and shoot and has more features that this camera including a tv out so you can view pictures from your camers on you tv, the picture quality is better and the price is much cheaper. CHECK CAREFULL AND SEE IF THEY HAVE RECONTINUED THE MODEM IN THESE CAMERAS BEFORE BUYING IT SO YOU DON'T PAY FOR SOMETHING YOU DON GET. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Polaroid's PDC 2300Z digital camera is a great entry-level 2-megapixel digital camera. To get closer to the action, the camera features a 2.3x optical (2x digital) zoom lens. The 2.3-megapixel CCD produces images at a resolution of 1792 x 1208, which is more than adequate for prints up to 8 x 10. The built-in flash features red-eye reduction, fill, auto, and off modes, providing a flash mode for virtually every situation. Images are stored on the included 8 MB CompactFlash card, although those interested in taking lots of high-resolution images at low compression ratios should consider investing in a higher capacity memory card. Images can be transferred to a computer via the included USB or serial cables. Polaroid says the PDC 2300Z is 'video-capable', meaning you can view photos on a television, or, for the more enterprising, record slideshows onto a blank videotape with a VCR. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Polaroid 2300Z Digital Camera is just right for me
I bought this camera as an upgrade to the Polaroid 1100 (my entry into the digital camera world.) The 1100 was just fine, but it didn't have an optical zoom, and I also wanted a bigger memory card. The 2300 has an optical as well as a digital zoom, and an 8MB memory card, which is plenty for me. It's a little more complicated than the 1100, but once you've got it down, everything becomes second nature. The pictures look great, but if by some chance they need a little tweaking, the Photomax Pro software that comes with it can take care of any little imperfections. It's very important to always remove the batteries when not in use, as these cameras soak them up fast. I also recommend Energizer Lithium AA batteries for longer life. And always use the AC power to upload. Another recommendation: To enhance your photos, it can't hurt to have a couple other software programs to do the job. I can still use the Photomax 3.0 that came with the 1100 (although you can't upload pictures to it directly from the 2300, but you can retrieve your photos from it). I also have Adobe Photo Deluxe, which came with my computer. It seems if one can't do what I want, I just go to one of the other programs. Another fun thing--I can connect to Polaroiddigital.com from the program and set up albums on their website for others to see and perhaps make prints of. Can't think of any downside right now, so I'll sign off. Hope this was helpful.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Pictures and the best value in Class!
The 2300z is the top of Polaroid line of digital cameras. It is designed and built by Pretec digital, a very reputable company. The camera takes some of the clearest and best pictures I have ever seen. And it is very easy to use, especially when compared to my old Sony digital camera.
[....]
The only things I have to say negative about the camera is A) 8 mb is not a lot, so you'll need a new CFlash card [...] B) You'll need to buy NiMH batteries to extend the battery life (which is quite long due to an econmic design and an auto shut off) and [...] C)The camera is a bit heftier than others, in size and weight, but weight is related to a good build, a heavy camera is that much better.

This camera is awesome, and the value is by far the best of any price or quality class, it's really unbelievable! So if your looking for a good, solid, family digital camera on a budget, look no further than the 2300z!

3-0 out of 5 stars Good...Kinda
THis camera worked for about 2 months. After that time it started not working properly. I couldn't use the LCD and the Optical Zoom didn't work. But I left it sit for about 2 months and it worked...wat a phenominom. I thought the image quality was good for 2.3MP. I found the software confusing though. I hated also how it sucked up batterys and it used 4 batterys. Also it was pretty heavy. But overall it was a decent camera but had some flaws.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to use - great quality Digital Camera
This camera is so easy to use. I have not cracked the user's guide. The quality of the photos is more than good. The software that comes with the camera makes transfering photos to your PC simple.

You can't hurt yourself taking pictures with this Camera. Simple yet powerful!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Value
This will be my second Digital Camera in over 4 years and I think it is a great value. The opportunity to switch from several different pixel levels is great for just about all ocassions. The resolution on the best setting is phenomenal. I haver used it at work and at home. The uploading from camera to PC is quick and easy. Erasing unwanted pictures is also easy to do. You can view the pictures on the LCD screen on the camera, on the PC, or on the Television set. I owned a Canon Previously and it was not as easy to use the resolution was not as good quality as the Polaroid PDC2300Z and I paid double the price for that camera. Also, one more thing to add.... The batteries seem to last a long time. You do not have to use the LCD screen to take pictures you can use the traditional camera view finder. That saves a tone of $$$$ on batteries. If I could rate this camera 10 stars I would! ... Read more
