Pixtreme Digital Sports Camera


$100.00

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Cheap, about $100 on eBay. It's waterproof. It has built-in flash.

The Cons:Cannot take close-up photos, about 4 feet away seems to be minimum without blurriness. Won't take power from the USB port, which should be standard engineering practice by now. Batteries won't last long, and batteries shipped with camera are cheap carbon-zinc, DOA in at least one case.

This product is a slimline 3 megapixel camera in a waterproof enclosure. This author tested the enclosure by submerging it in dishwater (sans camera) and found it did not leak after several minutes.

The camera can be removed from the waterproof enclosure or can be used while enclosed, making it safe for rainy days and on the beach or a pier.

The flash can be set to "auto", though it is by default "off". Wait until the red LED with the "lightning" logo stops blinking before attempting to take a picture that requires the flash.

To retrieve photos from the camera, remove from the waterproof case, and connect to the USB port of your PC. Windows XP or later should recognize the camera as a digital storage device. Double-click the directories until you locate your pictures.
