    $11 Digital Camera

    So I wanted to make a worklog with pics to post but I dont have a digital camera, so I thought about disposable cameras. I would be a pain to take pics, develop the film and have them put on a CD and then upload them. Then I remembered about those disposable digital cameras that Ritz/Wolf has. So after a bit of I found a way to hack those bastards to use a usb connection.

    I am going to buy one tomorrow afternoon and test it out.

    You can set the limit to whatever, one guy set his to 199, apparently the flash memory is obserdly large (12mb?). The quality is what you'd expect from an $11 camera, about 1.3 mega pixels I think.

    1.3 megapixels isn't bad.

    1.3 megapixels itself isn't bad, but they use bottom of the barrel chips, plastic lenses, etc. The quality is pretty poor. Then again, can't argue with $11!

    If you have a scanner, you don't have to put the pics on CD. Just a thought

    Yeah I have a scanner. Its hack an $11 dollar camera or get pics developed every time and scan and/or opt to put them on cd.
