JellyCam Meltdown

Having just posted some JellyCam pics, the camera has decided to throw in the towel and now makes pics that look like this!... looks like a trip to the tip and a search for a new one...

Jelly Cam

I picked up the decidedly low-fi Jelly Cam camera again...it's getting hard to find a simple digital camera with crappy lens and similar digital chip performance (a 'digital diana') and there is no doubt the Jelly Cam is one of them... In saying that it can be a frustrating beast to use... you get some great image and it will then spontaneously decide to reset itself and trash all your hard work.Here are a couple of examples I managed to record. Other problems include not being able to port to a Mac (had to borrow and old Windows Laptop)... pain in the proverbial... I think I am losing interest!


If you have never seen one of these cameras, they look like this... they are designed as a camera for very young children and you sort of 'squeeze' them to take a photo...
