It also had a fixed lense rather than a wind out one so that I didn't have to wait while the camera whirred and poked its nose out to take a pic. Not poking its nose out and making a noise was great for taking stealth pics.
Is there anything similar around now?
I'm looking to get a cheap and cheerful small camera to take away. Small and with a small belt pouch is a big plus for me. Ability to turn off auto focus and a decent optical zoom is handy.
Left to my own devices (small word play) I'll probably walk into JB HIFI and get a OLYMPUS TG-320 14MP DIGITAL CAMERA - for $147 -- for its no poking out nose feature or a Fuji film Finepix XP30 Digital Camera for $120 at Office works or just a JB OLYMPUS VG-160 14MP DIGITAL STILL CAMERA - for $84 and snaffle a cheap belt pouch from somewhere.
