I found this camera here.

http://cgi.ebay.ca/8-0-MP-DIGITAL-CA...ayphotohosting

After shipping its 80$. Seems to be good deal on 8.1MP camera.

However I found this Image sensor : 5.0 Mega Pixels CMOS sensor. What does that mean? I thought it was 8 Mega Pixels..?

Is this camera better although its only 7MP?

If it makes a difference, this will just be for personal use and I'm looking for a good deal rather then best quality availabe.

If you shop around, you'll find the same camera on Amazon for $15.

Yes, it's crap. The manufacturer offers no support. It has shown up with various name brands on it: Singer, Bell & Howell, etc.

Save your money.
