New "Micro Cam"


Anybody seen this? $19.98 at Wally World. Saw some 6.1MP cams for $79 also.

Might be good for a first time AP person or light aircraft.

Sure is, actually 10MP

Nope but for $20 US what do you expect... Only 640x480 but for a first timer who just wants to try, not too terrible.

Now let's don't nit pick it to pieces, were only talking a $20 camera.

neat cam, seems to be on par with the CVS ones that are used for ap too. How long can you record at that resolution - what is the frame rate?

You can get 25 QVGA 640X480 on it, it has 8Mb internal memory. each full size pic is about 100kb.

I think the only draw back to the design is they used SDRAM instead some type of Flash Memory. And the processor is definatly slower that a full size camera, press button to take picture the it is about 3-4 seconds before the photo count changes and the shutter is about 1-2 seconds before that.

Modes:
Self Timer
Continuious
High Compression
Low Compression
and one other it think like three shots in a row???

Hey, works as a web cam too...

This camera is good for $19 as is the Pencam SD from Aiptek from 2Fidelity.com.

I'm thinking we are about 6 mo. to a year away from cheap cameras that do most of the things we want.
