Mediocre 3.1MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical
Because second-rate cameras need love too
$69.99 + $5 Shipping and Handling
Let’s reconsider the concept of mediocrity. Maybe you’ve never heard of Rutherford B. Hayes, but he was more president than you’ll ever be. The Chicago Cubs continue to sell thousands of season tickets every season, despite posting only eight winning records in the last 25 years. Face was a pretty ineffective member of the A-Team, but at least he got to ride in the van.
So it goes with this terminally underwhelming digital camera. It is utterly mediocre in every particular, except the extent of its own mediocrity. You can point it at something and wind up with a viewable JPG, but that’s really about it. We’re talking one seriously pedestrian, middling, passable, undistinguished, prosaic, two-bit, penny-ante, entry-level piece of technology here, folks.
And yet, some of you will buy it, just like those Hayes voters and those Cubs fans. Because sometimes, good enough is good enough.

Hey, you can’t fault Woot’s honesty…in this case, you get what you pay for. Still, good enough for some.

hum… first page… guess thats pretty woot…
This Woot kinda blows!
In for 3 since I didnt get anything for the last three dayz.
No, this doesn’t blow. If it were the Millard Fillmore of cameras that would blow. Don’t even get me started on the MALLARD Fillmore of cameras… jeez.
first page… Come on woot! I already have my boating/fishing/construction/bar/sports digi.
:oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:
Good Night Wooters…
I got my “mediocre” camera when they did the lexmark/cam combo thing.
I love it!
It’s only 2 Mega Pixels and it works great enough for me.
I’ve got all sorts of pics out of it that work great.
(I know, it’s late and I cant speel worth beens)
cya all tomorrow, fellow wooters and wootette’s

Wow! I have to admit that I’ve never seen the word “abysmal” in a CNET review before. That’s impressive. I’ll pass
to think i just bought a Canon a400 instead of this… HMPH…
I worked at CompUSA for 5 years…Concord cameras are the biggest pieces of [size=18:c65e09afbc]crap [/size:c65e09afbc]in the world…plastic lens, no battery life, it doesn’t get much worse than this.
[size=24:c65e09afbc]SO MUCH CRAP IN THE CONCORD BAG!!![/size:c65e09afbc] :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

For $69.99, you gotta admit that its a decent deal. I mean, 3x optical zoom? The Oregon Scientific that Operah raved about last december was $120, only 2 megapixel, and no optical zoom. Everyone and their mom bought that one, sold out all over the country. I’d take this over that…
