Pokedigi SQ30m Pocket Digital Camera

, our web developer had a look at the Pokedigi SQ30m Pocket Camera: I found it a little difficult to get started using due to there being very little instructions in english. Luckily its quite a simple camera with only 2 buttons and a small 2 digit LCD screen. It has a total of 8 modes (4 photo, 4 video) each providing a different shooting style. There is no viewfinder and the only guide to line up a picture is a small notch on the top of the case.

I found it particularly difficult keeping my hand steady enough to get a photo that is in focus and not blurry due to a long shutter speed and not really knowing when the photo was being taken. When you push the shutter button, an initial beep sounds after about 2-4 seconds after, then another one about 1-2 seconds after that one. However, i imagine that if you are able to take a steady and in-frame shot that it could provide some pretty cool 'artsy' shots as the shooting modes provide some pretty cool effects.

Overall, it was a fun camera, but quickly found it a bit of an iritation waiting around 10-20 seconds for a photo to take and then finding that it was blurry.

I have the same feeling with editor when the very first time for me to use this camera as I found the shoot to shoot time is a little long. I try to use a stop watch to make comparison with others camera. And I found it is no big difference with other cameras. May be one of the reason that it doesn't like other camera which provide a LCD display for you to watch so that you would feel time is running so slow.
After few times use and I found it is quite easy to use. Grin And I enjoy so much the "Lomography" type feeling special effect provided by the camera. By using digital camera, which I need to spend relative lower cost, not only the camera itself, but also the film, film develope cost as well...GrinGrinGrin

Thanks for the comments and critique on this camera. I am a bit impetuous and would buy a crazy thing like this without reading up on it. Thanks
