From the model of the digicam it is evident that the camera uses a Writeable CD as the media, and it has it's own set of problems, viz.
The camera is somewhat bulky as compared to other Digicams with same or advanced features.
The media used is CD which has a limitation of 156 MB of data, and you can not view the pics on your computer by directly inserting the CD on your computer's CD drive, firstly you have to close the CD in the camera and make it ready for the computer which takes about 5 MB of the real estate, then again when you open it for the use of recording in the camera it again would eat up about 5 MB more, and you can calculate how much of data space space would be lost just for viewing the pics on a system.
I guess this might help you in deciding on this issue
