Default Mercury Digital Camera

Any opinions about Mercury make digital camera. I don't find its name in this site. Is it because, this is not so popular?

Never heard of it either...did a quick search for it and had a look at it, and to me it's a toy, even the 2.1 megapixel version. For instance, even the 2.1mp version only has digital zoom (optical zoom is prefered for quality). The descriptions has nothing about camera features (shutter speed, aperture, focusing, ISO, ability to overide those, etc.).

The only things they talk about is that it's "4-in-1" and it can be used as a still camera, video camera, webcam, and voice recorder (most digicams have 3 of these abilities; who wants to use their expensive camera as a webcam when you can just buy a cheap webcam).

Sounds like a fly by night company.

If you can't find it on this site with good test reports then avoid it like the plague.

I bought a cheapy once - might as well of thrown my money on the fire.

I've just found a store in Toronto that sells the Mercury 2.1mp camera for $169 Canadian. The store is one that deals with surplus, refurbished, used and liquidated merchandise.

A link to the camera on their site:

Just thought I'd let you know I have seen it and the kind of store that's selling it.
