I am writing this review after this camera failed, but I would still recommend it and will be replacing it by buying another one. Let me explain.
We bought this camera quite a while ago as it was good quality and sturdy looking, and not too expensive for a good brand. The reviews we read were good, so we went for it and got it in time for our hols.
It has travelled to many places with us, and I have to say, has not always had the easiest life as we have three children who love to have a go with it too. It has stood up admirably to this! It's been used on the beach, in the rain, and every other place you can think that you would not normally use your camera. Recently there is a problem with the screen and it's just mainly black, so it may have died, but it has had a hard life.
I think other cameras would have been finished long before this one!
The new Digimax UCA-4 is developed for the younger generation of digital camera users, with 4.1 mega pixels and an 3x optical zoom.
Its compact design has been made to withstand the rigors of modern life, while providing an array of useful and fun features. The UCA-4 is also perfect for the style conscious. Its streamlined body comes in 2 different colors, Techno Silver and the darker Titan silver.
The U-CA 4 is ideal for recording all those memorable days or nights out, as it has auto white balance, exposure metering and exposure compensation. This leaves you free to concentrate on getting the picture you want. You can also take pictures at night or in dark conditions with minimal fuss, as the UCA-4 has a Long Time Shutter function.
Getting to grips with the UCA-4 is simple, as you can navigate the menu system quickly and easily, with the enhanced User Interface. The menus on the LCD screen use 256 colors to cater for individual tastes and can be customized quickly, using the Move & Set system.
Film fans will enjoy the MPEG-4 facility, allowing a high-compression, high-quality, movie clip file format, giving a long recording time and high-quality results. You can edit and convert movie clips using the relevant software, and you can play them back on the camera.
