Thanks, Old Hacer. This camera looks like a clone of something else, but I'm not sure what.


Is this a real Sony?

The DXG EGAPixel has the largest screen yet on a hybrid, but the ad does not list image stabilization.

The only other digital cameras with FM radios were the Benq DCS30/40. But they were packaged like digital still cameras.

I like the addition of an FM radio, but like the mp3 player, in the real world these functions are heavily limited by battery capacity. Normal radios and mp3 players will run for many hours on their batteries. And that's how radios are typically used. With the hybrids, you can quickly drain the battery, consequently killing your camera. If you're away from somewhere you can recharge the battery, you better have spares. I wonder if they went to the trouble of having a low-drain mode, or is this just a consequence of using a computer to act like a radio?

The ad also mentions a "Book Light". Whazzat?

Don't have a clue as to what "book light" is. I think I know what "norma" and "macrol" mean.

Here in the UK, the Aldi supermarket chain will be offering this hybrid from Sunday 28th May. It is labelled under their own 'Traveller' name.

It's 5mp apparantly, and I;d be interested to know what model it's a copy of (assuming of course that it is a copy).

nantha,

I think you're right that the camera you mentioned is a clone of something else. I've seen that body shape before, but it isn't one of the mainstream Digilife/Mustek/Aiptek models. Maybe a Hanshing? With so many clones, with varying degrees of restyling and shared parts, keeping track of what's what is not entirely possible.

If you want to be picky, it's good this camera includes rechargable batteries and a charger. But it seems to lack image stabilization, and does video at 25fps. Competitive cameras take video at 30fps, have IS and other features, and have larger screens. This one looks fine, but there are better ones at similar prices. But none of them would be so easily available for you.

the company is called Wondercam, and another one is Vivitar ( not the orginal)

the video indoors is alright has hesitations, I recieved two video files 2 years ago maybe over a year.

the camera looked awesome back then, and should have improved. costed 200.00 plus usc.

not Hanshing SG. but is a tawain, orchina base location

it can be found in my brief hybrid list you need to look in there sometimes, I have tried my best to update as needed....
