Umax cameras are cheap, period. Also the 6.6mp is not real, it's resampled...the CCD on this camera is actually 3.35mp.

Can't say much about Umax cameras beyond the Umax Photorun I owned, which was garbage.

Specs of the 3660 at

so its that bad eh...hehe thnx i'm having 2nd thoughts on buying that now....but the specs are really good that's why im still a bit curious.

Specs don't tell the truth...just look at those little computers speakers that say they're rated for 120watts.

What really tells the story is the quality of the pictures, and you can't tell by the one posted on that link I gave...since it's reduced for web transmission you can't really tell.
