4-0 out of 5 stars Good little thing
This camera is amazing for its size and price. The pictures arent the best quality when taken inside a building with bad lights but once you go outside the pictures are pretty good. Also if you ever have any problems if you go to the main homepage of the company they will tell you exactly what to do and what they say works. This camera fits in your pocket and can take a beating and still works perfectly. File transfer to the computer is quick and it comes with lots of programs to hepl edit your photos. The video feature works well too. The bad thing is that the camera doesnt have flash but ifs there isnt enough light the camera wont let you take the picture. Great investment for fun pictures!

4-0 out of 5 stars What a great little toy!
I bought myself this tiny little digital camera... And I do mean tiny. It's about three inches by two inches, less than an ounce without its battery, and it cost about $35.00 (at discount price). It came in a horrible, terrible, ugly box that made it look like complete trash. But it's a nice little thing. It's brushed titanium and light blue brushed aluminum. Gives it a posh/stylish/modern look. It can take 300 pictures at 320x240 or 70 pictures at 640x480. No flash, no focus, no nothing. Just good for LiveJournal snaps and scrapbooking, and silly spontaneous email pics. Gotta have good light, too, if you want crisp pictures. Luckily, it has a clever little light sensor that triple-beeps and refuses to take the shot if it's too dark. If it's too dark, you can take grainy pictures, but they're good enough as mementos and Kodak moments. Useless as prints, great for online stuff. Gotta use this camera for what it's good for... don't try to treat it like an inexpensive "real" camera, because it ain't that!

The so-called "big downside" is that it runs on a single AAA battery and a RAM memory chip, which constantly drains the battery, even when the camera's powered off. It will only run about 5-7 hours on the battery and then, if you haven't downloaded them already, you lose all your pictures. Poof. It has a snazzy little USB interface that zips the pictures onto your hard drive automagically once you plug it in. Then you can start over. But I can imagine one day I'll forget to promptly offload, and be completely upset at it for eating the snapshots. I chose this camera because it was steeply discounted due to its unpopularity. The critics said, "Great camera, but I have to be around a computer ALL DAY or I lose my pictures!" And I thought myself, "Self - you ARE around a computer all day." And so I think it'll be a fun little toy.

4-0 out of 5 stars A great little camera!
I have a good 35mm (delegated now to occasional slides use) and a Sony MVC-FD90 digital, which I use regularly and love. I purchased the Blink 2 a few months ago as a secondary, take-everywhere snap shooter -- for daytime situations not reqiring the quality or options of my Sony and where I, otherwise, wouldn't be inclined to carry an expensive / bulky camera.

The Blink 2 is inconspicuously with me most times and always ready for use. It is very simple to operate and performs well (better than expected). The camera includes good photo enhancement software, worth the price alone. I usually shoot at 640x480 resolution and am pleased with results (good as should be expected at that level). The camera averages 60 images in capacity -- presumably double at 320x240. I personally like the fact that this camera will shoot to within a 2 ft. range. Haven't tried the video feature yet, but assume that performance will be as stated. The biggest drawback is battery consumption (the camera will eat a AAA battery with use) and the possibility of losing pictures if a dying battery is neglected (left unchanged). Why I rated the camera at 4 instead of 5. The camera will let you know when it's time to change though, and this can easily be done without losing pictures (thus an acceptable drawback at this price range). I always download ASAP after shooting, remove the battery -- and carry a spare. The camera comes with a handy cord and small video stand but no case. Any little 2.5 x 2.5 container fills that void. It doesn't feature flash and isn't intended for low light use.

All in all, this is a great little second camera for anyone on the go and I wouldn't be without it. Well worth its cost. Anyone not happy with it had unrealistic expectations.

3-0 out of 5 stars Little
The camera is smaller in person than what it looks like in the picture. I'm having problems setting up the software on my computer. You can's see the pictures you've taken until you hook it up to your computer. I give it 3 stars because it's so small and can fit it in your pocket.

1-0 out of 5 stars Nice chassis, but not much upstairs
My satisfaction with the camera, though initially attracted to it by its 'cute' & 'tiny' qualities, was rapidly demolished when I attempted to load the software provided in the kit: NOT SUPPORTED BY MY OPERATING SYSTEM (MS XP Pro). I forced my PC to accept the NOT digitally signed software installation, and it is a major freakin' tug of war to connect and then to transfer pictures (low quality, even in 'hi res' mode) into the very hokey GUI supplied. I'd rather a) that Microsoft can digitally sign the product and therefore offer some degree of support for it, and b) NOT use the hokey GUI -- I'd rather have the option to transfer pictures into "MY PICTURES" folder, so I can use whatever program I want to edit/correct poor image quality (let's say, Photoshop!), and lastly 3) I'm really NOT satisfied with the VERY amateurish poor quality of even the most carefully framed/composed snapshot. The dreaded Kodak Instamatics of my youth delivered a vastly better picture for "handy & ready to roll" casual snapshots!

Also, is it just me, or is the battery life pathetically short? My little goddam camera goes through a whole new battery every time I go to use it, and I know it is turned OFF when I put it away each time. So, I've taken to removing the battery when finished so I can possibly get more than one days' use out of a battery. Rechargable (fully charged) or ordinary alkaline battery, not much difference in loss of battery life when you least expect it (or possibly need it to work ... like, to photograph your car after someone collided with it in a car-park, which is useful for insurance -- minor damage barely shows, but it costs plenty to take 'dings' out of a goddam BMW).

All in all, I'll admit one thing: IT'S CUTE. In all of its tiny glory it would be a steal at the price if only it delivered a decent digital picture.

Enough said.

2-0 out of 5 stars Maybe I just got a lemon, but ...
I got this camera as a Christmas gift for my daughter. It was used once and downloaded (25) pictures OK. Afterwards, the original batteries (4x AA's) were toast. I went out and purchased rechargeable batteries and a charger. I implanted the 4 newly charged batteries, but the camera would not come to life. The only signs of life was the ready indicator light was on and, every 30 seconds, the LCD display would flash on and fade off. I performed CPR by swapping memory cards and batteries, to no avail. I pronounced it dead. An e-mail to tech support confirmed my diagnosis.
Unfortunate, because the pictures were nice quality and the camera seemed to have all the bells and whistles that many of the "brand name" models boasted in the 2 megapixel range ... and at almost 1/2 the price. This company's website is loaded with helpful tips and FAQ's and the tech support replied within 24 hrs which surprised me because it was New Years Day. The company seems to be doing all the right things, but the product failed.

I'm maximiiano from Argentina and some days ago y bought a SC-300 SI PIX deluxe.
Thisa camera takes GREAT PICTURES it reaches 275x300 DPI!!!! for digital prints using it's max resolution (2MP) I recomend to us the power adapter 6v 2 amp center positive, an 4 1800mah(minimun, i'm using a 2200mah) NIMH rechargabel battery.

1-0 out of 5 stars No luck with the camera and the company
I received this camera as a Christmas gift. The batteries actually pop out of the camera without warning. The driver software is defective. I have gotten the software to work one time. I contacted the company about the problems with the camera and software. I have yet to get a reply or any assitance of any kind. My advice is to let that camera decorate the shelf on the shop where they sell them.

2-0 out of 5 stars Great when it works
I was extremely happy when I first got the camera. Easy to use, good (PDF) manual, Really nice detailed pictures for the price and I've never even used the "high quality" mode! That's where it ends though!! I first started having problems when the weather turned cold. I was taking some outside pictures on a day with 32 to 40 degree temps and after about 5 shots, the camera said "unformatted mem"?? I lost those 5 pix. This has happened numerous times since and Tech Support says the SmartMedia chips are only good above 32 degrees. So now I run out take a few shots then run back in the house and xfer them to the pc. It has degraded some more with a red blurry bar in the photos when using the flash inside...(any light source or setting)and the latest is an intermittent "door open" message with the door closed. Yup..if I press on the battery/mem door, the indication changes.. sometimes.

Those outside pix I manage to save are still excellent quality though...I guess the "Glass is only half cracked".

Guess I'll see how their RMA process works.....

2-0 out of 5 stars Frustration and Headaches
For Christmas my Sis decided to purchase a digital camera for herself. Knowing that I knew more about techs than she does, she asked me to search for a decent digital camera under $$$. I narrowed my search between Sipix's SC-2300 and HP's PS320. Both had the same retail price of $$$ with similar specs, except Sipix had a larger LCD (HP: 1.5, Sipix 1.8), double the memory to 16MB, and a slightly larger mega pixel by 0.1 (HP has a 2.0 mega pixel). After comparing the specs I opted for the Sipix camera, so when I saw the camera being sold for 30 dollars less at Amazon for $$$... I bought it.

I surely thought I had made the right decision, but I was absolutely disappointed the first day I used it. First of all the driver that came with the box did not work properly with Windows XP. After being frustrated trying to figure out why it did not work properly with my Sis notebook, and after numerous attempts to reinstall the driver, I visited Sipix's poorly-made website. There, Sipix explained that there is a problem with the old driver running under WinXP, and said that downloading the new version would resolve it. Windows XP has been out in the market since October 2001, so for Sipix to not have caught this major bug is absolutely appalling. After I installed the driver the camera finally started to work with my notebook.

Another gripe I have about this camera is that the picture quality of the LCD is terrible. The LCD is dark even in bright conditions. It would have been better to have not included the LCD feature, not only is it useless it also drains the battery life significantly; so it's wise to shut the LCD feature off.

The camera came with 4 AA batteries that quickly died-out in less than two hours of use with LCD use. The camera does not include an electric cord to connect to the outlet, and because I did not have any 4 AA batteries around me I couldn't use it until the next day when I bought a new set of battery. Unless you want to keep on driving to the store for batteries every other day, I recommend you purchase 4 AA NiHM rechargeable batteries with recharger; that's another $$$ out from your wallet.

Despite the measly battery life, bad driver, and dark LCD, it does produce acceptable pictures. But after all these troubles even if the pictures were life-like, I wouldn't recommend this camera.


If you're in the market for a digital camera opt for one that includes rechargeable batteries and better Quality LCD. Unfortunately these are pricier, so if your budget is limited it's probably best to wait for prices to go down and for the technology to get better. This is certainly not the right time for to purchase high-quality, low priced digital cameras at this time ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars 4 1/2 Stars for the price
This little camera is great for the person wanting a small, good resolution camera at a good price. The video isn't great. It doesn't zoom. There no audio and you pretty much have to buy the memory card to record anything over 1-2 minutes. It has a timer on it which is nice so you can take picture with people. The flash is BRIGHT. It takes the best pictures in the light. Dark rooms are decent with the flash but you only get what you're shooting at, no background. But I can't stress enough how much you get for [the price]. This is a great camera for traveling.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Camera
This camera is really tiny and perfect for carrying around. It addition to taking photos it takes quicktime videos. Its fairly simply to understand and has really good quality pictures. Uploading is a breeze, so extreemy easy. I would give it 5 stars if it werent for its memory and battery life compatibility. The camera is a battery eater. I bought it on vacation with me and it was out of batteries within 2 days. Its also a memory eater, if you want good pictures that is. It has an internal memory of 16MB. That takes about 40 good pictures and has about 100 seconds of video. If you buy it I suggest you but the Memory Card for it becuase youll be glad you did. Overall its a good camera and I really enjoy using it.

1-0 out of 5 stars ONLY WORKS OUTSIDE
The flash is to bright, even if you turn the exposure level down all the way, the pictures come out all white. I would have to turn out all the lights to take a picture indoors, then you can't see what you're taking a picture of. If you turn on all the lights and turn the exposure level all the way up, you then get dim pictures with poor resolution.
Also there is no viewfinder besides the LCD screen, so its hard to aim.
It takes good pictures outdoors in the daytime.

5-0 out of 5 stars Speed
This supplier exceeded my expectations. Living in PA I ordered on-line on a Saturday and use regular ground service. I expected to receive my order in at minimum a week or perhaps 2 week. Instead I received it in only 3 days. An excellent surprise to say the least. The product itself is reliable, easy to use and has many additional features. The only draw back with this camera is that it utilizes a 1.1 USB cable that is not compatible with most users 2.0 USB connection. I had to purchase a memory card and a card reader, but it is well worth it.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best deal money can buy... A REALLY GREAT CAMERA
This is one outstanding camera for the money and performance. It's quite simple for begining users. The pictures are niiiiiccceee. The camera is liiiiiiggghhtt and so small! It has 16 mb! I'd have absolutley no hesitation to say this is the best deal you can find out there, Sipix has really outdone itself this time...!!! ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars You can get better for the price
(I originally reviewed this item when I first got it, the original should still be visible below)
I initially liked this camera since it was very cheap (thirty dollars) and took decent pictures outdoors. However, it developed a strange problem whereby it chews through batteries (high quality ones!) VERY quickly. Brand new alkalines only last for about 30 shots with very little or no flash usage. NIMH batteries can't be used in this camera for more than about 5 shots. Seeing as how you occasionally see low end HP and Kodak digicams for about 50 bucks there's no reason to buy this thing. You'll save money on batteries alone.
(old review below)

For the price...this camera's not half-bad.
The good:
Outdoors, it takes shots that range from ok to surprisingly good.
It includes a microphone for recording videos with audio, something that some much more expensive cameras don't have.
The ability to record up to 50 minutes of just audio is nice.

The bad:
Indoors the camera has a lot of trouble with washed out colors and dark corners (when using the flash). This comes up, for me at least, in about half of the indoor pictures I take. To me this isn't a big problem, but to others it could be.
Despite 16mb of memory, it can, oddly, only hold nine appproximately 250k high-res images (it holds 150 640x480 images which are sufficient for PC viewing and emailing). This seems weird as 250kB times 9 images is only 2.25 Mb.

The camera is certainly no SLR, but for the price it does pretty well.

3-0 out of 5 stars good for a first
I liked how that I dropped this camera on the floor to concrete like 5 or 6 times, and it has been hit by a basket ball and still it works!! The video's on this camera are pretty pixelized, they are not choppy though. And the fact that rechargable batteries dont work on it. YOU BETTER GET ENOUGH LIGHT THIS IS AN OUTDOOR CAMERA! And unless you have a VERY bright home, go outside with this, I must say you get a little more than what you pay for. GOOD CAMERA IF IT IS YOUR FIRST ONE!

4-0 out of 5 stars Muy buena camara!! Buenas Fotos con algún costo de bateria
Compre esta camara en Julio y me pareció una excelente inversion, graba sonido (audio) hasta por una hora, las fotografias son excelentes, la unica observacion que tendría es que las baterias duran muy poco especialmente se se usa mucho el flash, usando el flash en todas las fotos, dura una o dos sesiones de fotos. Un precio excelente para la buena calidad de las fotos. Viene con un tripode para usarla como web cam, cable USB, y cd-rom. En algunas ocaciones me sucedio que tuve que resetearla. La vendi, no porque no me gustara, sino que actualice a 2MP.

2-0 out of 5 stars SiPix StyleCam Deluxe
This SiPix StyleCam Deluxe was the first digital camera I ever purchased, although I have used a high-end Sony at work. I needed something really quickly and cheaply for an insurance claim and this camera seemed to fit the bill.

The picture quality is okay for capturing pictures for my insurance claim in either direct sunlight or in low light conditions with the built-in flash. The picture in low light conditions without the flahs is faded and full of noise. Color rendition is quite poor and focus is very soft. Also don't be confused by the 1.3MP rating. A 1.3MP picture taken by an expensive camera with a large lense will be much sharper than a 1.3 MP taken by this cheap camera.

The biggest gripe I have with this camera is not the resolution, but rather its absolute refusal to accept NiMH rechargeable batteries. It would give me at most 5 flashes because a set of freshly charged NiMH batteries dropped below the voltage cutoff point and the camera would then take no more pictures with the flash on. This camera absolutely DEMANDS fresh throwaway batteries, such as alkalines because it has a high voltage cutoff value.

This camera doesn't use a memory card. Instead it uses a built-in 16MB memory chip. The images will stay in the camera as long as there is sufficient battery power. A couple of times my camera froze and mysteriouly reset itself even when the batteries had plenty of juice left and all the pictures in the built-in 16MB memory were lost.

Installing the driver for the camera was not trivial on Windows XP. After installing the driver and included softwares and booting up as instructed by the manual, I plugged the camera into the USB port but the computer did not recognize the camera. Finally I opened up the two softwares and closed them again and then rebooted. Only then did the computer recognize the camera.

Although I gave it only 2 stars, one must keep in mind that I paid only $45 (shipping included) at J&R. Therefore, relative to the very low price paid, it was a decent camera, but in absolute terms it was a lousy camera. Overall I wish I had spent $100 or more to get a much better camera. But this was an emergency camera and I was not too picky about either its functionality or quality.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not a good buy
On the positive side: I liked the additions that came with the camera (software, cables, etc.) It was also easy to use and set up.
On the negative side: the color was very bad. People's faces looked redder than normal, with blotchy whiteness where the light fell. It made my tan cat look greenish. Also, the pictures were way too sharp, which intensified the color problems. If you want decent pictures, don't get this camera. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Big fun from a little camera!
Ok, so it's not the first choice of Ansel Adams, but for what you get for the money I'm really happy. I just needed a camera to keep with me for taking candid pictures of friends when we go out. With this little beauty I don't have to worry about leaving it at the bar, or at someones house that I don't know. If I do, no problem just get another becuase they're so cheap! The images are good enough to send to buddies on the internet, and even print out if you don't mind a bit of blur above 5x7. I love this little guy! It should be standard issue for everyone!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for the money
I bought this tiny wonder for my 13 year old son for X-mas and he just loves it. It takes decent pictures, does short 'movies' and he uses it as a web camera. His friends all want one. He can take it to school and if he loses/breaks it - I can afford to buy him another one. I read previous warnings about the battery so he downloads every day and changes the battery often. I would highly recommend it. No, it's not the best camera but for under $40 its a great deal.

1-0 out of 5 stars battery, software bugs in camera
Take some pictures
After 1 hour they are lost
If I run to my computer after taking a picture, sometimes just says program error
Does anyone else want his money back ?

5-0 out of 5 stars Too much fun.
I bought on of these cute cameras on ebay for 19.95 for the heck of it. What a fun little camera. I've had no problem with
batteries, taken numerous pictures, and made a bunch of short
avi movies. It really does great outside, not so good inside. But for the price what a load of fun. A truly great toy for the
youthful camera bug and a good bit of fun for the grown up folks, too. Don't let anybody sour you on this really quite amazing little camera.

1-0 out of 5 stars Can't give it away because its inability to focus.
I asked several co-workers if they would like to have the camera for free. Unfortunately, they have already heard about the problems of the camera and no one wants it. The biggest problem is that you need it to be perfectly still when taking a picture, or it will be blurry. I am unfortunately unable to keep that still. I ended up buying a new Minolta Dimage XI which takes much better picutres in all kinds of situations.

I would avoid this camera at all costs. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Maybe I'm lucky
This camera is defenitly not as bad as people make it out to be I got it today and have been using it with and with out flash and on all three quality settings just to get a feel for it and the batteries are fine and it hasn't shut off unespectantly

There are some problems with it first off is the flash is very bright and not good for close shots and without the flash (in my kinda dark house) you loose alot of detail but for the most part pictures are fine and with the software you can sharpen them and get better quality. Another problem is the lack of a zoom because zoom is always nice

The goods are many too such as the price (I got mine for 40 after shipping), the fact you can record video and audio, you get 16mb instead of 8mb like on most cams in this price range it is very easy to use and you can use it as a web cam too.

For the most part I think you get more than what you pay for when it comes to feature but when it comes to constant quality of your pitures it all depends on the lighting.

1-0 out of 5 stars SiPix Style Cam Deluxe...Garbage
Pure garbage, pictures would not come out if you used the fash,
only day light pics worked good, one day the camera just died,
put in new batteries...nothing, to late to return they only gave me 60 days, thanks for nothing.

1-0 out of 5 stars Sipix Style Cam Rubbish!!!
I took this out New Years Eve and every single picture was ruined! Everyone had no face as the flash was too bright. You can't even adjust the picture in a package as there is no detail in the faces. So take the pictures with the person standing 5 metres away! A bit of masking tape over the flash solves that but when I took some pictures of my baby neice who I see once a year I went to download them and the camera locked up. I lost all the pictures. Few weeks later I went out for someones birthday and took loads of pics. Next day the software crashes after downloading the 3rd picture (which takes between 5 - 15 mins) so I lost all those priceless pics too!! This camera is a joke! Other than those problems it could of been a decent camera, as the one or two pictures I actually managed to download didn't look too bad (outside shots only). If you risk losing the pictures you take whats the point in having a camera! I,m in the process of getting my money back. I,m going to put a bit more dosh in and get something that actually takes pictures.

1-0 out of 5 stars Very erratic performance
I picked up the SiPix on impulse due to its low price, figuring it would be a fun intro to digital photography and a great way of recording nights out / events at school. The camera is small and lightweight and therefore very good for that. However, it has several severe drawbacks:

- By default, the flash is turned off; therefore, photographs are often taken without flash and are unusable
- The camera's connection to the computer is erratic - for example, the camera has refused to connect for the past day and required a hard reset (losing all photos!) before it would connect again
- Picture quality is often poor, due to lack of focusing mechanism

1-0 out of 5 stars Poor Battery Design
This camera requires two AA bateries and due to the power requirements they have a very short life. The camera is designed for a maximum of 155 shots and the batteries may give up to 20, before they are drained. When the gauge begins to show loss of power it is impossible to transfer images to the computer. If you attempt to insert new batteries all images in the camera are lost. The best that can be hoped for is to take few images, immediately transfer to the computer. Keep an eye on the guage and replace batteries often. Can't be taken on vacation. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best camera in this price catagory! Couldn't be Happier!
It's a great little camera with all kinds of functions. And the pictures it takes are clear and crisp, never blurry or fuzzy. It's 3.3 megapixels will not disappoint! It's easy to use, a very simple interface.

Pros: PRICE, picture quality, style of the camera itself, large LCD screen, red eye reduction flash works great, holds 96 pictures at once, expandable with flash cards

Cons: Loves to eat batteries (must have a charger), time and date reset each time batteries are changed, preferences also reset to factory default each time batteries are changed.

4-0 out of 5 stars Forget the brand.
SIPIX?, I never ever listen about that brand, and I confess, that was my unique "but" before buy the camera. I must to say that it's and excellent camera (in resume). The pictures that it take have an amazing resolution (you have 2048 x 1536 in fine mode, when probably your screen is 800 x 600). Also I bought a 256 MB Compact Flash memory card (SIPIX say that they didn't try a CF more than 128 MB, but it tried it and it's really works very well!). Now I can take more than 1500 pictures and make a 45 min. video with all my memory.

Why 4 stars and not 5?. Ok, well, it's true that the big problem (like in all the digital cameras) are the batteries. The alkaline AA's are just candies for the SIPIX 3300 and works for 2 hours. But, I buy a NiMH rechargeable batteries an woalá!, batteries for a week. Also you must to buy a battery charger ($30 in Amazon). Believe me; the energy problem was completely solved.

I'm really happy with this camera. Just forget the brand, It doesn't matter really. Good camera, excellent price ($119 for a 3.3 megapixels, come on!), excellent pictures, hi quality video recording. You don't need more, or are you expecting to win a Pulitzer?. That camera is one of the best businesses I did.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Value for the Money
You can get this camera with a rebate for under $100. At that price, it's a steal. Of course, if you want to get any more than limited use out of it, you have to buy rechargeable batteries and memory. Yes, it eats batteries. Invest in a 4-pack of AA NiMH batteries and a charger and you'll be able to keep 2 batteries in the camera and 2 in your pocket. The 16mb on-board memory will only allow you to take 9 photos on the "super fine" setting. Invest in a 128mb compact flash card and suddenly you're up to 79 pictures.

As to the quality of the pictures, they are superb outdoors. Incredible detail and dazzling color. I avoid taking photos indoors with a flash because it turns the subject into a deer in the headlights and obliterates the background. This is true, though, of most point and shoot cameras. With proper lighting and using the camera's tripod mount, you might be able to achieve good indoor shots without the flash. Otherwise, the indoor shots are just okay.

I don't love the bundled software and recommend after you download the photos to your computer -- saving in a non-degrading TIFF format -- that you use DCEnhancer, a fantastic piece of freeware from, to bring out the colors and texture of your photos. It even rescues some of the over- and under-exposed indoor shots.

Some have complained about the camera's lack of analog zoom or the crummy quality of the digital zoom. Even on my old film SLR, I never use a zoom lens. The best zoom is your feet! Get closer or farther away to frame your subject properly.

Others have complained that the camera is a little bulky. True, it's not a micro-mini camera, but it's smaller and much lighter than my old 35mm p&s, so I could hardly be happier. It lives in my briefcase so I can take a photo whenever the mood strikes. Sure, it's also little flimsy and there's a lot of plastic around, but I didn't pay a Leica-type price either. Frankly, this allows me to take more risks with the camera -- using it at the beach or near ground level because I'm not too worried if it gets a little dusty or beat up.

This is my first digital camera and having paid so little for a 3.3 megapixel camera, I'm very happy with it. In a year or so when digital SLR's come within my price range, I will upgrade, but I have a feeling the SiPix will happily spend the next few years living in my backpack or coat pocket so it's at the ready.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent, Inexpensive, and Easy to use!

GREAT camera if you're jumping into digital. New or used, you can't get a better feel for what 3.2MP resolution with many of the features many high-end cameras carry for the price (white balance, exposure compensation, movie mode, B&W and sepia, rapid shots, and photo editing software).

The high points are the 3.3 MP, large LCD, auto-focus, rapid shot mode (4 pics in a row), movie mode, ArcSoft PhotoImpression. The low points are no optical zoom and heavy battery consumption. I don't use zoom since camera shake always ruins my pics. Also, since I have a 3.2MP image, I can crop using PhotoImpression and still get a great 4x6 or 5x7. I found that using the flash when the light is behind the subject does an excellent job as fill flash. And rechargables are a necessity with ANY electonics!

I compared it to a Fuji finepix 2.0 MP camera and found the images to be comparable. Fuji did have better color and light compensation when you look at the original jpeg but the Sipix SW made up for the correction (modify contract & lightness, increase saturation). Beside, I never met a digital image I didn't want to manipulate!

BTW, I'm using a 256MB flash card which works with this camera!

1 - set to macro mode if you're less than 3 ft away
2 - time/date resets when you replace batteries
3 - there is no sound recorded with movie mode although you CAN record 45 minutes on 128MB CF
4 - low compression = 1.6MB (9 pics w/ 16MB), high compress = 600 KB (24 pics w/ 16MB);

4-0 out of 5 stars Very nice pics, OK as your first digital camera
I think this is a very good camera at a very good price. You have to get a little used with setting the flash, exposure value and white balance manually so you can get really excellent pctures.

Some of the pros of the camera are: 3.3 megapixel resolution, manual controls like exposure and flash... and some of the cons: when you have it in your hands, it doesn't feel very solid it's like if you toss it, it will tear into pieces instead of just scratching, also the macro mode is pretty much useless because you can't get very close, you can't read the LCD outdoors when it's sunny (but it's OK, use the viewfinder), very low battery life (buy rechargables and you will notice a BIG difference).

Well, there are more cons than pros, bur anyways if you take care of it and learn how to squeeze the juice out of it you can have it for about a year or two and then buy a more professional camera ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars decent cheap camera
640x480 can do alot. Wish I could add memory. Wish it worked on Linux or Macintosh. Closeups work well. It's also fast. You can take about 1-2 pictures a second for capturing some action. 640x480, gotta be close. Also small enough to carry everywhere.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Animation Cam
I wanted to do a claymation video, and on TV anything more than 640x480 is wasted. This camera has a feature that no other one in its class can match: a macro setting for extreme close ups. It has a standard tripod screw mount on the bottom.

The only drawback is the interface. You address this little beast as a TWAIN device, like a scanner. That limits the software than can read from it, and the included software is only OK.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good value for money.
I wanted a digital camera, but I wasn't in a position to fork over several hundred dollars. I compromised and bought the StyleCam so I could learn more about digital photography and editing. It doubles as a webcam, and can also shoot AVI movies 60 seconds in length at 3 frames per second.

The camera is a little smaller than a deck of playing cards. It comes with a black pouch that you can attach to your belt, stand, USB cable, Maxell batteries, software CD, instruction booklet, and a small wrist strap. Even if you can't get the strap around your wrist, it's good to wrap around a couple of fingers when you're operating the camera one-handed so you don't drop it. It just barely goes over my hand and my glove size is mens medium.

Picture quality is fair, but you can use the software to make adjustments and improve the pic. Indoor photography was better than I expected even with no flash. I got some very crisp pictures inside a shopping mall, and some okay pics inside my apartment which was only lit by one 60 watt bulb directed at the subject. Daytime outdoor shots are pretty good, but you have to be facing away from the sun or you will get glare. At night, you've got to be in a somewhat well lit area to get a pic, like on a street with lots of street lamps.

The camera has only two buttons, so it's pretty easy to use. It beeps every time you take a picture (even when shooting an AVI) which can get annoying, especially if you're trying to take someone's picture without them noticing you. It has a delay-timer function so you can set it and get in the shot. The software has some neat tools for manipulating and enhancing photos that I've seen on much more expensive programs. They seem to have thought out the package really well. There is even a PDF version of the manual on the CD in case you lose the instruction booklet.

Unlike most digicams, this one isn't a battery hog. That's because there is no LCD screen and no flash. When hooked to your computer, the camera draws power directly from the USB port. It can hold about 60 VGA or 180 CIF pictures before the memory is full. There is no removable memory, and you continue to use battery power while the camera is storing photos, even if the camera is off. If the batteries run out you'll lose your pictures, but the camera will hold your pictures for a few seconds while you are changing batteries. I tested it by taking out the batteries for 30 seconds. My pics were still there.

0.3 megapixels is VGA quality or about 1/10th the size of a picture taken by a "good" camera. With only 0.3 megapixels you're not going to get print-quality pictures. But at less than 1/10th the cost of a "good" camera, this is a great first camera if you just want to post some pics on your website or ebay or just play around. I think it will do nicely until I can get the camera I really want next year.

4-0 out of 5 stars It gets the job done.
I recently purchased the StyleCam. It was my first digital camera purchase, and I bought it to post pictures I take on the web. The camera itself it very small (hard to tell by the pictures of it!). Image quality isn't the best, but it's not the worst either. For the price the camera is a pretty good deal. For my uses, it gets the job done. You do get what you pay for- an easy to use digital camera that will take okay pictures. The included software with the camera is better than I thought it would be. Image editing functions are cool to mess around with, but I generally stick with Photoshop for my needs.

If you're looking for a very easy to use, no fuss digital camera for your basic picture needs, the StyleCam will most likely suit you.

4-0 out of 5 stars A very nice digital camera!!
Maybe you are looking for a great camera..
Maybe you may need a super camera.. but..

11. SiPix StyleCam DV100 Digital Video Camera
list price: $129.99

US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan Review

There are two things that stand out immediately about the about the StyleCam DV100--size and price. A digital still camera, digital camcorder, and audio recorder in one, the DV100 is about the size of a bar of soap and is priced at a fraction of the cost of next cheapest digital camcorder. Too good to be true? Not at all. The camera is everything it claims to be, is easy enough to be used right out of the box, and overall makes a decent entry-level digital camcorder.

So what’s the catch? The big one is that without a memory card (and it does have a slot for either a MMC or SD card), the camera will be maxed out before you’ve even really started. How many photos and how much video the camera can hold depends on the level of quality you choose. At the lowest resolution (640x480), you can take a respectable 80 still shots, but at a more standard resolution level (1280x1024) that number is less than half, and if you take even two minutes of video, you won’t get more than ten or so shots off before the dreaded "Memory Full" message. Purely as a camcorder, it is not very useful without external memory since you won’t get much more than about ten minutes of footage. And the fidelity of the video, at8-15 frames per second, is not exactly HDTV-ready (although we are actually kind of fond of the low-budget indie film look).

Another minor drawback that should be mentioned is that the shutter button is awkwardly positioned just to the right of the viewfinder so your index finger must bend nearly in half in order to reach it. A quick word about the software that comes with in the package, PhotoImpression and VideoImpression: It’s not junk (call us cynical, but we’ve come to expect this). The software’s big, friendly graphic interface let you do quickly and easily do all the basics: crop, adjust contrast, re-size, etc. Unlikely to be mistaken for Adobe PhotoShop, but perfectly usable nevertheless.

Sure, this camera has its limitations, but these must be weighed against its combination of price and size, which is nothing less than astonishing. --David Stoesz

4-0 out of 5 stars Great on the go Camera
When I started my family, I bought an 8mm camera. I can probably count the number of times I used it on one hand in the five years I've owned it. It was bulky, needed frequent recharging, and frankly, after a while, I would forget to bring it out. I was looking for something small, digital, and of course inexepensive. I gave the SiPix a shot. I love this little camera. I can take it everywhere and it's very simple to use. The software is also simple, but it doesn't have alot of features. If buying this camera, it is a MUST to purchase a memory stick, at LEAST 256 MB or you can't record video for more than a couple of minutes. Also, there is no flash, so only outside or in lit areas. I was dissapointed that there was no flash or lighting options, and battery life (2 AAs) doesn't last as long as I like (but longer than the 8mm NiMH, how sad). Overall, this camera had performed how I expected it to for the cost. The quality is not the best, but decent, and it works great to record little moments on family trips and the kid's activities. If you are looking for portable, digital, and an inexpensive camera to start with; and can live with "ok" quality, this is the camera to buy. Especially since it's a great starter camera if you're not sure you want to upgrade to digital camcorders because of price. The money you spend on this camera is worth "experimenting" in the digital world, before you upgrade to the "big dogs"

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Entry-Level All-Digital Camcorder
I wanted an entirely digital (i.e. no tape) camcorder in order to try out the technology. We're not "camcorder people," so the idea of dropping several hundred dollars on a video camera (Mini-DV, Hi-8, Digital-8, or what have you) wasn't attractive. Surprisingly, there are not a lot of straight-to-memory-card camcorders out there! I thought the Sipix DV100 was exactly what we were looking for.

The other reviews are right. It's sturdy, very small, and it does just what it advertises. It's true that the shutter button is a bit awkwardly located, but a) you only hit it once to start recording, and b) you can brace your thumb against the left side of the camera to make reaching the button easier. The lack of any type of flash makes recording a challenge. The AUTO white balance feature, while a plus, doesn't always compensate, particularly indoors. Outdoors, though, I have no complaints. Resolution is exactly what I expected: 15fps (with a 256Mb SanDisk SD card) at 320x240, and 8fps at 640x480. The microphone does a decent job of picking up sound, most especially for the camera operator (not so much for the subjects). The ability to connect to a TV is great for immediately sharing the results of your recordings, and the USB connection is as fast as I expected. Finally, battery life is tremendous! Whereas my Sony Cybershot still camera drains batteries like there's no tomorrow, this little camcorder is still running on its original batteries after at least 20 minutes of recording, several downloads, and several TV "productions." I realize that this is due in large part to the lack of a flash, but it's still a nice bonus.

The only reason I'd give it 4 rather than 5 stars is the lack of an AC power source. Battery life is great, but it'd be nice to not have to run on batteries every single time you use the camera.

Oh, get about 35 minutes of recording at 320x240 on a 256Mb SanDisk SD card.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not very good, but OK for beginner or kid
Overall I was dissapointed in this camera. The description is not thorough enough. 1.3 Megapixels is for STILL images, and the images are decent but there is no flash so limited when lighting is bad. Video modes are 640x480, 320x240, and 160x120. Probably my biggest dissapointment was that the best video mode, 640x480, only shoots at 8 frames per second, which is very choppy and fuzzy. The other two modes shoot at 15 frames per second, which is a little better but they are small screen sizes. Audio is pretty good. If this was my first digital camera ever I would probably think its ok, but I was looking for an upgrade to the video capabilities of my current digital still camera, and this was not it. I will probably give it to some 10 year old as a gift or to a friend who has never had a digital camera.

4-0 out of 5 stars cool camera
This camera is really cool. It takes decent videos and pictures and is still inexpensive and small. The only drawback to this camera is the fact that it has a small internal memory. Without a card you get a max of 3 min. recording time. However with a card there is no limit to how much you can do. It is also very easy to use and comes with good software. I live in minnesota and it arrived in about 5 days. I would highly recomend this product.
