Workshy workhorse?

It's A Snap

The camera has an unspectacular range of features including 4x digital zoom, multi-shot and macro mode, as well as settings for colour tone, white balance, contrast, sharpness and exposure. It takes about five seconds to fire up, so it's not great for quick snaps, but picture quality is generally good, with a fair degree of detail and accurate colours.

That said, it does appear to be a bit quick to suffer from overexposure in bright light conditions. Video records in VGA resolution at 30fps and offers reasonably smooth motion, though it's not great at handling detail overall.

Prerecorded MPEG4 videos look sharp and detailed on the screen and there's the option to stretch the picture to fit the screen. It's a useful feature, but a little ham-fisted in its execution – the picture literally stretches horizontally so faces look pudgy and circles become ovals.
