Hi,

Probably photography enthusiasts aren't too impressed with ultracompacts that are merely functional, but I wondered if anyone had any thoughts or experience with iRiver 1000 MP3 playerwithdigital camera - called Prism Eye.

Also I recall there was a page reviewing the Best Ultracompacts that also included the Zippo camera and the keychain ultracompacts. Can't seem to find it...any ideas where the link is?

Thanks in advance,

-S

Compared to today's digicams, the iRiver is ancient in terms of megapixel at 0.3 (640x480 or VGA). When it comes to optics it's a tiny pinhole point and shoot, just meant for teenagers taking snapshots, so it's not a serious camera. It doesn't even have a flash, something that this type of camera crys out for. In one review of the entire device it only gave a 5/10!

All-in-one devices do nothing very well!
