Digicam clone from China: Too good to be true

While it looks suspiciously like Sony's H7 or Nikon's upcoming P80, the specifications tell another story.

From the same country that spawned countless of iPhone clones comes a camera that looks too good to be true. And apparently it is.

Chinese company Chinavasion is promoting its prosumer lookalike point-and-shoot, the ZKX-DC5010. While it looks suspiciously like Sony's H7 or Nikon's upcoming P80, the specifications tell another story.

It comes with an outdated 5-megapixel sensor, tiny 2.4-inch LCD display, fixed lens (with no indication on focal length) and 4x digital zoom. All these telltale signs point to one thing: Unless you are really hard up on cash and still want to take pictures, stay away from it. But if you're still interested, check out the promotional video on its Web site.

This shooter is more for wholesale than single purchase. One set costs $125.60 and if you buy three, it's $120.57. There are options to purchase 50 or more, but to find out the price we would have to register and be a member of Chinavasion. Thanks, but no thanks. We'll stick to the big boys.
