Ebuyer occasionally has very good deals. I am just hoping the speakers will come into stock as they say in 10days.

The Umax camera is a good entry camera and sells for about the same price elsewhere. The flash is not very good and will only illuminate about 6 feet clearly, but the camera tskes good shots in bright conditions. I think it is a re-badged Chinese/Taiwanese camera and has a fixed focus and auto-exposure.

It is not blessed with many controls, which can be a blessing or curse and being a rather small/light camera, can be a bit difficult to use without a tripod. There is no optical viewfinder, so shooting in low light can be a pig. It only has a USB 1.1 connection but that should not be a problem. The zoom is only digital with no optical choice.

Although they claim a 6.6mp interpolation I would forget about that as there will be no visible difference to the 3.3mp output. All-in-all it has reasonable quality (shadow detail is a bit murky as are highlights)and a good entry camera, at about £10 cheaper than elsewhere. It is not the sturdiest camera that is around but should last for some time.


ps...ordered the speakers at £14.70 inc delivery ;-)))))))
