Cheap piece of poop 6mp camera of mine.

by jake008 / August 24, 2005 10:45 AM PDT

I bought a super cheap 6 megapixel "HanshingCam" camera around a year ago before i new anything about digital cameras. It's a horrible camera. I bought it thinking it would be good since it had 6mp, but it has no manual features what so ever(execpt white balance). Not even any scene modes to chose from. It is terribly slow taking pictures at any resolution, and in playback mode theres around a 3 second delay between each picture ( and no menu that i see on other digital cameras that is like a scene seletion menu on a dvd). 75percent of the time my computer dosent detect the camera

So i plan on buying a Canon this time. I don't trust small name companies with cameras any more. Either the canon a510 or a cheap 5mp camera. What are some great 5 mp cameras in the price range of the canon a510? thankyou Jake from Canada
