Just come back from Aldi and Tesco - Aldi's special offer from next Thursday is a 3.3MP £99.99 digital camera.
Spec includes endless video mode at 15fps, automatic or white balance, 1.5in TFT screen, 16MB Secure Digital memory card, auto flash/fill-in/flash off modes, flash and battery status, red-eye reduction, AC mains adaptor, two rechargeable NiMH batteries and charger, video TV output, USB and TV cables and pouch.
The lens is (only) a focus-free 7.9mm with macro mode, but will probably produce better shots than what would probably be a not too good zoom on such a cheap camera.
Again there's (only) a 2x zoom but half of 3.3MP is equivalent to a 1.3MP digital camera in any case...:-)
Driver and MGI software is also supplied.
Sounds as though it could be a pretty good first digital camera for most people - certainly it looks very smart.
vaughan007 has mentioned last weeks deal and for £199 it was a great buy. I myself have a Dimage 7, but someone I know bought the 4.0 Mp from Aldi, and I am impressed for a cheap camera when aside to my £950 one.
