5.0 out of 5 stars Low cost camera compatible with CHDK software, 12 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this camera to use with the CHDK freeware that enhances the functionality so that you can do things like time lapse photography, use a USB cable to trigger the taking of a picture, plus a load of other things eg Raw mode. I've taken over 5000 pictures in time lapse mode and turned them into HD movies with Google's Picasa. Have also run it via mains power via a adapter. Perfect for what I wanted it for.

Not much you can say about a connector cable. (Well you can if you think that everything needs to be gold-plated!) It works fine with my Nexus 10 to Samsung TV.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice unit - battery connection a bit dodgy, 12 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works well once you manage to get the batteries to make contact. The design of the positive connector prevents some types of battery from connecting. Easily fixed with a bit of foil if necessary.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lasted less than 6 months, 15 Sept. 2013
I bought this less than 6 months ago and the heating element failed yesterday. We live in a hard water area but this is still a very short working lifetime. The last one lasted at least 2 years. Worked quite well to begin with but sometimes it would have cooled down and then take a while to get back up to temperature.

When I took the failed iron apart I realised that this is not a steam generator iron as such. It would be more accurate to describe it as a steam iron with an external cold water supply. This makes it more prone to failure because all the scale builds up inside the element in the iron. Also the guarantee isn't a lot of use since it rules out any damage caused by scale unless you descale it monthly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works really well with my Nexus tablet, 27 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have used this with a Canon Powershot A1300 and a Nexus 10. Seems to transfer pictures very quickly and does not require local WiFi. A bit fiddly to configure initially. If you auto upload to Google photos it eats up your 7gb? of free storage quite quckly. Great for use when travelling.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fashion over function, 20 Oct. 2009
I wish I had realised that this is a very basic unit which does not support the display of points of interest (like restaurants, filling stations etc) while you are driving. Almost any other Satnav is able to do this. Also the warning about a safety camera consists of a couple of bleeps when you are quite close to the camera plus a small flashing symbol on the display. If you look at the demo video, it suggests that this is a whole screen warning - it's not!

The IQ routes feature is very clever but slows down the calculation and re-calculation of routes. My advice go for almost any other model but this one.
