The 21st Century Scamera – the Unamed Supposedly 16MP Camera review

The Lockdown has made work for idle hands and unfortunately I decided to buy new camera. Now I’m no stranger to cheesy lo-fi Cameras but this frankly was one of the worst cameras I’ve ever used. Not that it’s the worse optically or feature wise. This is just a scam and not a good one at that.

A Proper dSLR For 15 Quid ? – the Canon EOS 300D revisited in 2020

So ever the eye for a bargain, I wondered how low you could go to get a digital SLR ? Over the years I’ve managed to snag some brilliant cameras both analogue and digital for peanut prices ? But how about a game changing Canon for less than the cost of Takeaway for 2.

And what better place to start is my first digital – the Olympus Camedia C-120 (aka D-380). It looks lousy compared to even a modern entry level smart phone camera with Fixed focus and the sheer luxury of 2 Mega Pixels. But why did this camera travel around the world.

Fallout 2018 – A year Of living with the Yashica Y35

Possibly the most controversial camera in modern times arrived through my door last year. It wasn’t great and even I’ll admit that my phone and even some entry level 2010 second hand compacts are better clinically. But a few of us reviewers felt the Yashica Y35 didn’t deserve all the hate it got.

But over 1000 shots & one year on how do I find it ?
