Description:
The DiRFcamera.

This thing is a dinosaur... it's over 8 years old, its screen is severely damaged, but still kinda works... I rarely use the screen anyway, since this fucker EATS AA batteries. But it does take a purdy picture... if only I could figure out how to increase the resolution... it can also supposedly take video... damned if I know how to do that though.

The great thing though, the memory card it uses... my computer came with a built-in reader for that kinda memory card... so uploading photos to my PC from this camera is unbelievably easy.

Another thing that bugs me about this camera... it takes about 15 seconds just to turn on. I'm not joking. ...and it can take upwards of 30 seconds to shut off.

But hey, it was free, so I really can't complain :P

Oh, and the optical zoom rather than having a digital zoom is SOOOO nice.

I don't know what kind of resolution you're getting, but an 8 year old camera isn't going to be putting out super highres images.

YAY! I finally figured out how to increase the resolution... I've apparently been running with the lowest resolution since I got the camera... which was producing 768x512 images.

On the highest resolution, it produces 1536x1024 images... that's still pretty small though, right?

That's not bad. It's a lot smaller than what today's cameras are capable of, but it's just fine for most purposes.

Funky aspect ratio, though. Most consumer cameras are 4:3.

I'm thinking about getting a new digital camera before the car show here next Saturday. I don't know if there are any decent ones in my price range, though: About the most I'm willing to spend is $300.

#8, The quality of the pictures you took at the last show sucked pretty much. You deserve better.

#8, I've had a couple Kodak Easyshare CX7330s. They were both pretty good cameras, and can be had for cheap now, and I current had a Canon Powershot A550, and A200. Honestly, I'd try to pick up a decent Canon or Kodak CX7330.

Here's mine : http://www.zone-numerique.com/uploa..._a570is_300.jpg

Canon Powershot A570is. Love it. Much better compared to my parent's Olympus D-630 (http://www.livingroom.org.au/photol...edia_D-630.jpg)

Sadly, the image quality from this thing has really started to drop drastically...

I want to replace it, but if I'm going to do so, I really need a few things (I'd rather upgrade than get a spec for spec replacement):

- at least 5x zooming
- a flash that isn't close to the lens (reduce flash reflection and red-eye) ...I would prefer, like, the lens on one side of the facade, the flash on the other...
- is VERY easy to use
- has a rechargeable battery-pack...
- EXTREMELY nice photo quality
- under $250

Any ideas? I don't mind getting a camera that is a tad old... I really don't care about insanely high megapixel ratings...

#18, I would recommend the Kodak Easyshare V1003....if it weren't for the fact that the LCD screen on mine stopped working about 10 months after I bought it.

It still takes photos, but now I can't make lens adjustments, and zooming is a crap-shoot. I just have no idea what I'm photographing until I've taken the thing home and plugged it into my computer.

#19, I wish more modern cameras still had a regular physical viewfinder as a backup... I never use the viewscreen on this old Kodak.
