If you don't know much about digital cameras and you only want it to play with and the price is right then ok.

But if you get serious then you will quickly outgrow it. I would go for something with a higher resolution and removable memory.

Chugby & James55
Thanks for your info.

Forgive me but I forgot to add this.

The sensational Binocular Digital Camera is a digital camera with a specially designed 5x telescopic lens.
Combined with its high-speed shutter, these incredible binoculars allow you to produce amazing freeze-frame action pictures.

Stylish silver and black design with neck cord
Comes complete with user friendly image editing software.

USB cable included to easily download images to your PC.

Stores 20 pictures in High resolution and 80 in low resolution.

And the price £29.95

The resolution being so low means that you won't geta very good picture, it'll be ok on the computer screen but printouts probably won't be too great and you'll have to keep the print size small, but its ok for mucking about with. But for less than £30 its probably ok.

Thank you, your input very welcome.

...wondered about these, where did you see it.
you will probably need another media card.

recommend try it out somewhere before you buy and compare, maybe able to get alot better spec for not much more money, spec a major consideration
but also whether you like the setup/controls etc.
Agree with James55, go for higher resolution/spec if you can, better in the long run.

For £99.99 or less you can buy the 3.2MP Kodak CX7300 which would be a far better use of your money; the 7330 with 3x optical zoom is about £125-£130.

You can get other 2 or 3MP digital cameras for under £100, but they will almost certainly have a digital rather than an optical zoom lens.

640x480 Pixels will give you very poor results. Personally, I would save my money and go for something better.

I agree with anchor & Stuartli .
